CARLSBERG SPECIAL BREW

This is, as it says, a Carlsberg special brew, found on tap in Legnano, Italy. It's actually pretty good.

Very rich without that overwhelming heft and bloating you get in some northern European beers. It could have more bitterness but there is just enough there and it drinks very smooth. Aged-distilled-tipple smooth.

And it's 9% but doesn't have the pungent telltale stench or tongue-wobbling sharpness of most thumpers. Knocked up for Winston Churchill's visit to Denmark in 1950, even though old Winnie didn't knock back much beer.

 

7/10
