Carlsberg's version of a European lager impresses at first, but falls flat where it counts. The beer pours a pale golden body that's filled to the brim with a rushing swarm of tiny bubbles. It's no surprise, therefore, that the beer sports an impressively thick, snow-white head with plenty of staying power.

The beer smells of sweet, untoasted grains. It tastes mostly of metal, quickly followed by a rush of sweet corn. The sweetness creates the illusion of fruit as I reach the last few sips in the glass. The feel of the beer on the palate is more robust than some lagers; I suppose it complements the sweet flavor nicely.

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.
