Carlsberg 47 was Carlsberg’s first, strong Christmas beer, originally brewed for the first time in 1972 on the occasion of Carlsberg’s 125th anniversary. It should only have been on the market for that one year, but its great taste quickly gained with beer connoisseurs and has had a permant place in Carlsberg Group’s product portfolio ever since. Carlsberg 47 is released every year around the time of Carlsberg Breweries’ birthday in early November and is available until the New Year. The taste is round and sweet, as a Christmas beer should be. The roasted caramel aromas blend themselves with a tasty bite in the aftertaste, and the dark color suits the season nicely.
