Tuborg

a 4.6% abv beer that is the second-biggest brand in the Carlsberg group and launched in the UK this month

I have built up a very fond taste for bottled beer over the years, probably stemming from my travels in

Australia.

Small bottles, known as "stubbies", are very popular with lager drinkers there.

I've had the opportunity to taste many varieties and my particular favourites are imported beers from Australia, Latin America and Europe, so I was certainly happy to give Tuborg a try.

Straight away it became clear to see which brewery is behind this beer, as the packaging bears more than a passing resemblance to its famous brewer Carlsberg.

This raises expectations about Tuborg's potential to reflect the level of quality you might expect from the Danes.

Tuborg is a pilsner with a very crisp, clean taste.

It seemed very natural, and its lack of chemical aftertaste pleases the pallet.

The bottles' ring-pull tops are innovative and make it quick and easy for thirsty drinkers to access the lager.

I'm not sure whether sitting in the sunshine may have improved its refreshing qualities, but my first bottle disappeared very quickly indeed.

By the time I had started on my fourth bottle I understood completely why Tuborg has become Denmark's best-selling beer.

Score: 16/20
