The Can Says: "Brewed
since 1950, Carlsberg Special Brew is the original
says: Carlsberg special brew is a well
known brand of tramp juice, rivalling that of
Tennents for mass market awareness. So it was with
great pleasure that I took delivery of 4 golden
cans of this fine beverage. The golden can design
is quite professional, although maybe a tad dark
and understated. The can doesn't make a great deal
of effort in stating its alcohol, but with a world
renowned reputation it probably doesn't need to.
poured it did so with a surprising amount of
head-like most super strengths. I was pleased to
see that 500ml cans were provided for this review
and are also standard in shops up and down the
country. Well done to Carlsberg for this. After
the burgandy ring pull was pulled a satisfying
hiss accompanied my happy anticipation. This was
to be some brew, and some brew it was. Admittedly
a little sweet, this brew was eminently drinkable,
almost the perfect super strength and at 9%
Carlsberg have hidden the strength well. This brew
did not break the 10% barrier like the Rochefort
but it still has one hell of a knock out punch.
Can be drunk warm but is best drunk chilled, I
cannot recommend this brew enough to you. The
hangover is extremely harsh and I will personally
buy anybody a pint who can drink more than 6 cans
of this brew.
This is probably one of the best brews that I have
ever tasted in my life. The
alcohol is perfectly disguised and the beer is
drinkable hot or cold, rain or shine. 9% is a fair
old whack and for the price I doubt this will be
bettered although at the time of writing Tennants
super has not been fully reviewed. 4 cans is
enough to see you drunk and the only downside
seeming to be that you don't see many tramps
drinking this beverage. Because of this I feel
that I have to mark this down but Carlsberg
Special Brew still attains 9/10.
A very good site dedicated just to the brew.
