Beer #5: Carlsberg

From Copenhagen, Denmark comes Carlsberg. Karen had tried this one before and didn't have many great things to say about it. I have to agree.

BeerAdvocate.com rates it as a C, or mediocre. And it's certainly worthy of that rating. They state it's a German pilsner style, but it doesn't quite taste right. No head, some aroma, some hops, mostly alcohol flavor. Maybe that's what you want.

This is another beer brewed in another country and then imported here, unlike fake import beers that are brewed "under authority" from the foreign brewery but by a local brewery.

I do not recommend Carlsberg. Fortunately I had a can of Big Swell IPA from Maui Brewing to chase the 330mL of Carlsberg badness.
