Lager Cans

First brewed in 1847 by J C Jacobson, the first Carlsberg brewery was built just outside the Copenhagen on a hill (berg in Danish).

The brewery was named after JC's first son, Carl. Hence "Carlsberg" or Carl's Hill Brewery.

It is quite obvious that the site controllers only allow the positive comments - don't blame them, they are trying to sell the product, after all. But Carlsberg (in the UK) is awful at 3.8%. I would only consider Export or Elephant, and they are still very bitter. It can only compete on price... it is cheap for a reason.

The best beer in the world by far. Please let me know how I can order some Carlburg using U.S. dollars. Thank you.
