Beer Review: Carlsberg

Jaipur, Rajasthan 2008

Not sure if it was 2008 or 2009 when I saw an ad outside a liquor store saying Carlsberg beer had arrived in India, but that was when I immediately agreed with my then girlfriend’s idea of her catching up on a girlie movie because she was sick of me being horny all the time.  That left me free to do something else (other manly stuff, of course). I dropped her home and on my way to wherever, picked up two 650 ml bottles of Carlsberg, in the hope of finding a brew extraordinaire. How predictable.

There is much to be said about guzzling beer hurriedly in an autorickshaw. It needs to be kept out of sight of policemen, and a pint of Carlsberg looks like a bottle of Sprite, but I have two big bottles of this import from Denmark. The beer also must be kept chilled; Carlsberg is an ordinary lager, okay to drink when chilled, with a faint rose-like flavour showing up as it gets warmer.

Carlsberg’s promotional slogan says it is “probably the best lager in the world”, a claim which I rubbish as I point you to Tuborg Green – another Danish brew, and one you’ll enjoy drinking.

    You’re too kind on these pissy beers. Next time you review sample some drinks even I wanna be there. My opinion will be useful, trust me.

    There are actually a variety of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great level to deliver up. I offer the thoughts above as basic inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you convey up where the most important factor might be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round issues like that, but I’m positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both boys and girls really feel the influence of just a second’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
