Recently, I came across another Carlsberg product, Carlsberg Gold from a local supermarket and decided to give it a try as I never try this type of beer. It costs around RM 6.20-RM6.70.
This product replaces Carlsberg's 160th anniversary brew. Made from 3 different malts like crystal, brown and lager blended to perfection with hops and Carlsberg's world famous yeast, Saccharomycos Carlsbergensis.
It is brewed with slightly higher alcohol content of 5.5% compare with other beers in the market.
Gold was the chosen name as it symbolized power, strength and perfection.
A comparison of Carlsberg Gold bottle with the normal Carlsberg beer in the market. Obviously, it has a striking resemblance with the old Carlsberg bottle.
Once pour to a cup, it produces quite a head. The head was quite dense and last for a decent duration of time
Carlsberg Gold is surprisingly smooth. The taste is totally different from a normal beer. It is definitely one of the best beer around. Definitely deserve a "Gold" medal from me
