BOTD: Tuborg Premium Lager

For today’s tasty adult beverage we have a cold Tuborg Premium Lager. Ice cold, and trust me, there’s a reason. First this Danish beer seems to have the same problem with skunking that the Dutch lagers have. We are all happy to blame it on the age of the beer and remove any guilt from the hands of the brewer but my god do Dutch lagers skunk fast, and this Dane seems to have gone off the same.
Less than refreshingPosted by Hello

Tuborg at least does the more famous Heineken one better by putting a little hint of brown in their glass but it doesn’t help much as Tuborg’s shelf life is probably greater than its half life – and beer is pretty god dammed atomically stable. So that first think you notice is the skunked nose this beer sadly offers up to the drinker. That warning is then followed up by an equally skunked fore and after taste. With good old beers you can still tell it’s trying, I don’t get that sensation from the Tuborg Premium Lager. Oh, and for consistency’s sake they have made their website just as distasteful as their brew.

Brewery: Tuborg (Carlsburg)
Year: 1893
Origin: Denmark
Style: Lager
Content: unknown
Rating: low
Recommendation: Even though it can be had cheap it best to avoid unless you are in the mood for an overly stale beer.

UPDATE: I am an idiot. This is a Danish beer and not Dutch. The posting has been altered to reflect this.

Hello,

Thanks for the link. Cant articulate much with beer. I am a teatotaller.

Always wanted to know what the feeling of being "High" would be like.

Regards,
Sunil.

Glad you enjoyed the link. I've got way to much germanic blood in me, I probably need the beer. :)

Did the experience with it in Italy really make you want to try it again. A glutton for stale-beer punishment, you are. It wasn't that good fresh.

Isn't Tuborg a Danish beer?

If by Danish you mean Denmark then you are correct. But see Holland bought Denmark in a secret deal about 6 years ago that's been kept hush hush by the Eurocrats in Brussles, so it's still techincally a Dutch lager.
