Carlsberg has become the latest brewer to launch a citrus-flavoured beer in the UK.

The Danish brewing giant will unveil Carlsberg Edge, a beer infused with "a subtle hint of lemon and lime flavour" next month.

Darran Britton, marketing director for Carlsberg UK, said: "We believe that the launch of Carlsberg Edge will create a great deal of excitement within the beer category, particularly with 18-24 year olds and female consumers."

"We are very confident in the product, which is already receiving a fantastic response from the trade," a Carlsberg UK spokesman told just-drinks today (20 July).

The launch of Carlsberg Edge follows a move by the UK's largest brewer, Scottish & Newcastle, to develop a citrus-flavoured variant to beer brand Foster's, the fruity Foster's Twist.
