Danish: Carlsberg Elephant er en såkaldt ”Bockbier” og blev brygget for første gang i 1959. Den er vinøs og frugtig med smagsindtryk af æbler, melon, banan og karamel afbalanceret af en tør bitterhed. Du fornemmer også antydninger af egetræ, bark, nødder og fyrrenåle. Farven er lys gylden med hvidt skum.

English: Carlsberg Elephant Beer is an amber-coloured beer with big intensity in its aroma, and with a distinct maltyness. There is notes of honey in the aroma. The palate of Carlsberg Elephant shows a good balance between a good body from the alcohol, and a discrete sweetness which is tamed by the sophisticated bitterness of the aftertaste.

Back in the day I probably would have had a higher opinion but it just doesn’t hold up to the craft brewing of today. Refreshing and light, but a noticeable skunk odor is detectable that ruins the overall impression.

pours a faintly murky straw gold with a decent white bubbly head. Aroma is hay, grass, and stereotypical Euro "good skunk". Taste is semi-sweet malt. Some faint hops fade in. Clean finish with a lightly sweet linger. Not bad. Refreshing.

Første gang jeg smager den efter jeg har fået smag for er andet end paderborn og guld-øl. Den er let spritet og også kun lettere humlet. Den har en meget god frugtagtig smag. Den er helt klart bedre end jeg husker den fra "gamle dage"

Barva: světlá zlatá, pěna hustá, vůně nevýrazná sladová. Chuť: sladší chlebový nástup, střední říz, hutné tělo. Bohužel chybí výraznější hořkost, v dozvuku lihová stopa.

DylansDad (552) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 28, 2016
Fairly pleasant aroma of hay with a touch of honey and banana. Taste is sweet hay, honey, banana, touch of nutmeg here and there, earthy hops, very light spice. Let down a bit by a moderate slighly metallic alcohol twang. Generally too sweet and gluggy up the middle and too sharp at the end. Not bad.

This beer is made to get drunk. I can not honestly enjoy it at all. It’s very flat and I can taste alcohol differentiated from the beer itself. It*s as if they added additional alcohol afterwards... thats what I get from drinking it.

Comes in a 330ml (11.2 ounce) nice green bottle. With an alcohol content over 7% you are expecting a kick with this brew. Would look nice to drink cold from the bottle. On pour a nice clear golden yellow colour, with a good foamy head which settles to a decent looking lager, no real lacing. A real beery smell, with a very strong tinge of alcohol, and a very sweet, grainy maltiness apparent, some hints of honey. On taste I got a creamy mouthful, with some grains Lots of sugar, a very sweet malt after taste, too sweet in fact. I found this NOT NICE at all, too harsh to drink! Lots of alcohol in the taste Overall, it was too strong, a bit chemical, a bit flat, very bad chemical aftertaste, is certainly a strong beer to drink! For sure its strong and has a kick but that’s in absence of any discernible taste or flavour. I found it very difficult to drink, lots of bitter hops, too many, and the malts kicking in to the fore. Not for me.
