This beer has a very light see through look with lots of carbonation bubbles. Smells like a ballgame beer, biscuit malt scented. Flavor is not my favorite but I will call it biscuit like with a slightly metallic flavored hop end. Quite carbonated feel with a fairly light to slightly creamy body.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Look: Pours a clear, stereotypical golden beer color with a one finger, white head. Moderate lacing is left behind on the glass.

Aroma: Almost non-existent. Mildly bitter, grassy, cooked corn, biscuits and very light honey.

Taste: It literally tastes like slightly dry, sweetened carbonated water. It's skunky, and syrupy while at the same time bland with none of that nice hoppy, spicy citrus flavor from real versions of the style. Normally I can tolerate a bland beer as long as it can quench my thirst but it's so sweet and syrupy it can't even do that right.

Feel: Highly carbonated. Mid-light body. Slightly syrupy.

Overall: I've had worse beers, but this reminds me of why I hated pilseners way back when before I got into craft beer and learned what a real pilsner should taste like. If were comparing adjuncts here, I'd take a Beck's or Heineken over this any day.

Gold looking, little aromatic and easy to drink. Not so bitter and has a very balanced taste.

Ahhhh, the Budweiser of Denmark. Sweet finish and better than it's American counterpart, mine was served a bit warm. Colder and consumed on a hot day, it could be tolerated.
