Served in a bottle at Tonic (Hilton Beijing) in Beijing, China

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall bright white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of grainy malts and floral hops.

T: Light to moderate flavors of grainy malts with just a hint of floral hops and a light amount of sweetness. The beer has a light amount of bitterness that lingers int he finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp with just a touch of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink and quite refreshing, a pretty good example of the style and surprisingly without the skunky smell that I have noticed in this beer in the US (maybe the version they are getting in China is fresher?).

ABV 5,0%

I got this beer in a WORLD BEERS packet (possibly the worst beer related buy I ever spent money on - the packet itself I mean, beers were alright).
A small green bottle of 250 ml, with only its neck covered with a label, while a relief of the word CARLSBERG can be found four times around the bottle.
I crack the bottle open and a smell of malts goes straight into my nose. The head is white in colour when I pour it, one finger in height and seems thick in texture. A lot of bubbles rising hastily to the top. The head disappears after a while, leaving a thin film covering the sutface of the beer, but no lacing around the glass.
The aroma of this beer comes mostly from the malts, with a nice strong smell. Some hops aroma too, but very faint.
The taste is very malty too, thus sweet. But only at first, since the aftertaste is pleasantly bitter. Very refreshing on a hot day like this one.
Dry on the palate, quite thin on the body and light carbonation, give this beer a high drinkability.
Overall a very nice beer. I had it many times before but mostly straight from the bottle and I could also easily find a cold one at my local bar. Now that I can't find it around the corner anymore (except in cans which I'd rather not) I appreciate it much more.
