A nice lager beer I've enjoyed off and on over the years. Goes down smooth on a warm summer night. Not spectacular, but pleasantly drinkable.

This is a well balanced lager with sweet malt and a touch of bitter hops. Easy drinking, but with enough flavor to know you're drinking a lager. I had this in a can instead of the green glass bottle and it was very fresh.

Review: 0,33l bottle of Carlsberg: ABV: 5%

The export version that is sold throughout Europe. I think the UK version is different, less alcohol for the crazies to deal with. Comes in a long dark green bottle, which looks a bit shite to be frank.

Initially on the pour get a nice white head, and a clear golden coloured beer. Goes all a bit flat after a while as the head dies a death, not really much of a looker.

Smell is not bad, nice and malty on the nose, some grains too. Ok for smell. 

For the taste, it is all bitterness and the hops are strong. I wish it had a cleaner smoother finish.

Full of sweet malts and the grain flavours are imposing.

I always find Carlsberg to be a little too strong for me, strong in the taste, it has that slight bitterness in the front that one doesn't have with other lagers. Also a citrus bite to it. Some people like all this, I don't though. It is definitely an acquired taste. It is manageable if I was at a party or something, or desperate, but I prefer to drink smoother lagers, ones that you don't squirm when you drink them.

Not quaffable enough for my liking, but I can understand how some could like this beer.

Carlsberg Beer brewed by Carlsberg Danmark A/S, with an ABV of 5.00% This Euro Pale Lager pours out a golden amber color with a nice white head. There is some spotty lacing to this brew, it dose stick to the side of the glass. The smell is clean with grains and malts. There is some minor hops in the smell as well. So far this is a nice inviting brew.Carlsberg Beer has the look an smell of most Euro Pale Ales on the market, not saying that is a bad thing. Now for the taste, it is rich with grains and malts. The hops are really mild for this brew. This is a well put together brew. Bold at first, then Clean and smooth at the end. Carlsberg Beer puts me in the mind set of an American Adjunct Lager. The body of Carlsberg Beer is a solid medium. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a super nice balance to it. This brew would go nice on any occasion, an with a 5.00% ABV is just right. The mouth feel is Bold, Clean, Smooth, Crisps, and Refreshing. Overall I'm going to give Carlsberg Beer a 4 out of 5. I would definitely look this brew up again giving the opportunity to. Carlsberg Danmark A/S, did a real nice job with this brew.

A Note: I have been looking for this brew, for awhile now and it was really enjoyable. I am looking forward to adding this brew to my line up of brews .

It's been years since the last time I tried a Carlsberg ! But , wait for it...no surprises . It's still your basic Euro Pale Lager....middle of the road , balanced . You know aroma and taste , corny , grainy not too anything . But still very drinkable ! Sit on down and kick back a few. you got nothing to complain about .
