The colour is yellow with a tint of gold; the white foam is quite compact, but it dissolves quickly.

The smell is medium strong with a bittersweet feel. There are notes of malt, aroma hops (somewhat artificial) and salt.

The carbonation is fresh and not too sharp.

The taste got a distinct taste of white bread and diacetyl, giving it a robust body. There is some sweetness (toffee?) with a burned note. The finishing flavour got a dry touch of dark rye bread. In the aftertaste, I noticed a rather mild bitterness and some sweet malt.

A “Classic” in Denmark is a lager that got some more body and a little more gold in the colour. I found this one better than most of the standard Danish pale lagers.

Purchased in Iceland, where the label said it was made with real Icelandic water. I think this is a different version, brewed at Egil.

Anyhow, it was a very solid example of a Euro pils. Fresh, crisp barley with mild grain complexities and no esters. The nearest referent I can muster is Heineken, only this has a much more pronounced hop bite as it finishes.

Tuborg Classic has a thick, slightly off-white head, and a very clear, deep golden appearance, with some bubbles streaming up the glass. A decent amount of lacing is left behind. The aroma is bready, but some water and hops can be picked up. Taste is predominantly of bread, with an underlying faint hop spice. Mouth-feel is light and watery, and Tuborg Classic finishes refreshing and semi-dry. Overall, this is a pretty good beer to try; it was sent to me from Denmark.

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.

Aroma: A dusty malt nose with some floral notes
Appearance: Bright sparkling light blonde
Flavor: A mild clean taste with a slight bitter end. Overall; just not much there.
Mouthfeel: Light and bubbly
Overall Impression: A light flavored beer that would make a decent session beer. Has a bitter hang that lasts a bit. Not bad, but don’t cross state lines to experience.

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.

Had a pint of this on-tap while travelling in Denmark on a patio in the shade in downtown Copenhagen. Cost was 50 Danish kroner. Served cold into an unmarked pint glass.

Appearance - a rich coppery amber color. Rather clear with few bubbles. Minimal head too. Still a very appetizing beer on a warm summers day.

Smell - minimal aromas, some lager yeasty aromatics, and some mild malts, maybe with a trace of caramel.

Taste - crisp, mildly bitter with some malt influence throughout every sip. Hop presence is very low, but still comes of crisp and clean.

Mouthfeel - smooth and clean yet not too refined that would cause the beer to lose its edge. Mildly dry finish and medium carbonation throughout.

Overall - better than I expected. Missing some of the bigger hop presence of other Vienna lagers I've had (Boston lager) this still delivered a very tasty and satisfying punch. Maybe slightly enhanced by the fact this was on a patio on vacation in Denmark on a beautiful summer day, but this is something I would repeat if available enact home.
