COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Slightly sweet. Some honey. Fresh cut grass. Light malts. Banana perhaps? Light bitterness on end. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jow (2751) - New York, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Last unrated brew at crappy place I happen to be. Normal gold macro pour. Nose is alcohol and corn. Tastes corny of cardboard and alcohol and sweet malt. Pretty crappy.

UDBeernut (2187) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2015
6 pack picked up. Pours golden, translucent, small white head. Lots of malt sweetness, some metal. Finish is massively drying with some lingering metal flavor. Just this side of being a malt liqour, which is the wrong side.

Avetixz (41) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2015
Aroma of hops and alcohol, herbal, floral, hay, bread, as well as some malt. Pours clear light amber liquid with a big, soapy white head. Medium sweetness and bitterness in the taste with a flavour of honey, herbs, hops, nuts and malt, little skunky. The aftertaste is alcohol and bitterness and leaves a dry feeling in the mouth. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Definitely a pretty intense aroma and flavour, as it is advertised. The flavour is a little monotone, but overall pleasent, though the finish is a little astringent.

Moravius (868) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2015
50-cl-Dose aus einem Edeka-Markt in Berlin. Auf der Dose: „Nach deutschem Reinheitsgebot in Deutschland gebraut“; 7,5 %. - Orangegold, klar; schöne Schaumkrone. - In der Nase blasse aber nicht unangenehme Malzsüße und Alkohol. - Antrunk rund malzsüß mit Anklängen an Honig, abgerundet mit ganz zarten fruchtig-säuerlichen Noten. Im weiteren Verlauf setzt eine störende dumpf-künstliche Note ein, die zum Ende hin in fiese Hopfenextraktbittere übergeht. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Trockener, schroff bitterer Abgang mit Noten von Gummi. Extrem langer, fies bitterer Nachtrunk, der kaum an Hopfen erinnert. - Brutal simples Starkbier, wohl eher für Wirkungstrinker als für Genießer gedacht.

0,5 Dose von der Tankstelle. Goldgelb, kaum Schaum, gut Kohlensäure. Riecht würzig, malzig. Schmeckt süßlich, malzig, minimal bitter. Komischer Geschmack

Morboso (118) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2015
Fruity and floral aroma, pronounced sweet banana note, cinnamon and chives. The high alcohol overpowers the flavour unfortunately but part of its charm I guess. oh yeah I made up the chives part.

TorbenJensen (792) - Valby, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2015
Boring briefly foam. The aroma contains malt, very light hop and easy fruit. It tastes light fruit, good malty sweetness and a marked hoppy bitterness. It is a powerful luxury with lots of power, a little too excessive alcohol taste. Not a beer I appreciate.

Surprised this is rated so low. I’m almost wondering if I drank the same thing. The last bit did have a strange aftertaste though.

kajser27 (398) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 27, 2015
Golden, white head. Aroma is of sugar, some fruit and caramel, smells artificial. Quite sweet, grains, sugar, caramel, syrup, some grassy herbal hops, low to medium bitter. Strong alcohol but not as much as expected. Moderate body and carbonation. No, just... no.

Clear gold with small white head. Aroma sweet and grainy. Taste grainy, fairly clean, highly drinkable, bit of a metallic finish.
