A: Pours a clear and golden liquid into the glass. The off-white colored head is frothy and about two fingers high at first. It quickly dissolves into a very thin layer. There are lots of visible carbonation bubbles.

S: Smells of damp hay, molded cellars and some very faint spicy tones.

T: It doesn't taste much. Sweet corn up front, then sweet malts and some very faint flowery hops at the end.

M: Medium to thin body. Medium carbonation.

O: Well, this beer does not need a presentation. It's far from bad but it is nothing I normally buy either. A typical Euro-Lager.

Drank alot of this in Asia at the hotel taps. readily available, very easy drinking, nothing remarkable to speak of in terms of flavor. I don't know if there might be some preservative added to this stuff in China, but after a few long sessions drinking this and watching football several of us developed a little irritation in our throat, resulting in a chronic mild cough. For my gang it is now and ever shall be the 'Carlsberg Cough'!

500ml can served in an ordinary glass.

A: Pours a pale golden yellow color forming a big bubbled and aired white head. Clear body, standard Euro Lager. Good retention and tons lacings left

S: Sweet grains, Lager yeasts and flowery hops. Good malty profile with classic bready Lager yeasts. Hops are also bit citrus

T: Follows the nose. Sweet grains upfront, bready Lager yeasts tempered with citrus hops. Finish is smoothly bitter

M: Smooth and light body. Good carbonation. Upfront is sweet and bitter but aftertaste is smooth and grainy

O: Easy drinking beer. Classic Euro Lager. Nothing but an average session Lager
