Jacobsen_Original_Dark_Lager_75clWrangler Rating:


This is a very enjoyable beer. Carlsberg’s premium line is named after the company’s founder – J.C. Jacobsen and it certainly trumps the usual Carlsberg output. This dark lager is a deep amber, ruby brown, and has the beer has a light head. There are notes of lightly toasted caramel, perhaps a hint of banana and roasted coconut. Despite these traditionally heavier flavours the finish is still crisp and refreshing.  I drank this with grilled pork, marinated in a BBQ sauce and served with a Greek salad,  the subtly sweet toasted flavours of the beer matched the meat very well.

ABV:  5.8%

Best Served: 6 – 8ºC
