About Carlsberg Malaysia Carlsberg Malaysia presents “Malaysia’s Own Oktoberfest 2011” by featuring Malaysia’s No.1 beer brand Carlsberg and three Bavarian imported beers from Germany by its subsidiary Luen Heng F&B Sdn. Bhd.

  • Carlsberg (5% ABV), a lager beer founded by J.C. Jacobsen in 1847, is brewed with a pure yeast strain named Saccharomyces Carlsbergensis and perfected by the Danish art of brewing. It is an international brand that is available in more than 140 markets worldwide. Carlsberg is the most preferred beer brand in Malaysia according to the Millward Brown Peninsular Malaysia 2010/2011 (Global Research Agency).
  • Erdinger Weissbier (5.3% ABV), pioneered in the 70’s, was the first German wheat beer to be distributed nationwide. Today, Erdinger is synonymous with German wheat beer and is sold in more than 70 countries. Erdinger is brewed according to traditional recipes and has no preservatives, additives and pasteurization, complying with the Bavarian Purity Law 1516.
  • Franziskaner Weissbier (5% ABV), a traditional Bavarian wheat beer with more than 600 years of history, is refreshing and aromatic in character. This Bavarian beer is naturally cloudy and copper-coloured and enhanced with a sweet malt taste with a smooth creamy texture for finish.
  • Löwenbräu (in 5.2% ABV), an original “German Munich Beer”, is famous at Oktoberfests. It is a lager beer that is refreshing with a taste of malt and mild hop bitterness. The beer is light to the taste, bright golden-yellow in colour, and truly complements the Bavarian drinking experience.
