One of the truely awful beers that i have come across. Tasted like vomit, sweet bland and offensive, puke in abottle. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with the bar not looking after there beerlines, but it was really unpleasnt. Well, Tuborgs other beers are rubbish, so i'll put that down as the reason.

330ml bottle from kiosk in Copenhagen (10.50 Dkr):
This one was a fairly basic Vienna style lager but at the same time it definitely exceeded my expectations given I had thought it was another pale lager when I cracked the bottle open; especially consider it was described as a "Traditional Pilsner' on the bottle. Thankfully it was a little better than what I'd thought going in, there was some nice sweetness & a few basic malts to keep things interesting without it being a classic.

On tap at Vagabondo in Cph Denmark

A - Pale golden color but frankly not much color to the beer.
S - Bananas, grain, alcohol (getting hints of Natural Light here)
T - Yuengling watered down with seltzer water. Not much flavor to speak of.
M - Perfectly fine, like drinking naturally carbonated spring water.
D - Meh. Could drink a lot but wouldn't choose to.

feel like I need to rate this beer in context-- this is by far the best of the shitty danish macros. it’s a tiny bit malty, which is just enough to keep me from falling asleep on the bar. since 99% of the time in copenhagen it was either this or carlsberg, it may deserve an even higher score than I gave it.

On a main strip of bars in Copenhagen, just outside of the square, we stopped at a cafe along the canal to try some of the local offerings. They didn't have my first choice, so I pointed to Tuborg Classic, listed as a pilsner on the menu, but to my chagrin when it arrived, actually a Euro Pale Lager.

The color is a deeper brownish-hued amber, topped off by a 2-finger column of pure white foam. Completely clear, crisply bodied, and decently carbonated, there are a few streamers that rise as it sits, but no other obstructions appear in the body of the beer.

The nose is pretty standard adjunct lager. Grainy with hints of corn, there are virtually no hop aromas, just a balanced lack of sweetness to show for their addition to the kettle. The taste is disappointing, as well, as the adjunct flavors translate fully onto the palate. There are some hints of caramel, maybe a touch of toffee, but nothing too notable.

Generally good on the palate, the texture is well done despite the beer's shortcomings. Not a bad option, but there are definitely better in the city.

Pours a clear dark golden color, almost amber. There is a large two finger bright white frothy head sitting on top. There is decent retention and some lace.

the aroma has a slight bitter hop, kind of grassy. It is also slightly metallic.

Taste is nothing special. A nutty, cereal like maltiness and is only slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with good carbonation.

Drinkability is moderate. Low alcohol and simple flavor makes this beer easy to consume, but the lack of flavor is discouraging.
