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

Halve liter blik gekocht in getränkemarkt in Gotha. 7,5 % alcohol. Helder goudgeel, de kraag is snel weg, maar dat kan ook aan het limonadeglas waaruit ik dronk hebben gelegen. Het bier ruikt vaag metalig en licht moutig maar ik moet goed mijn best doen om iets te ruiken. Smaak is zoetig, wat mout en waterig met een onaangename afdronk. Bagger.

I would liken this to a sophisticated malt liquor. The most notable aspect was the mild carbonation, which is much appreciated in a beer with this ABV. The aroma was not noticeably different from my recollection of Carlsberg pale lager. Nor did I taste much in the way of roasted grain to make me associate this with an amber. It is easy drinking though.

Bottle. Clear straw gold pourwd with one finger of a frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Malty aroma with notes of biscuit and honey. There is a slight sku.ky undertone (green bottle?). The taste is a lite sweet.

tricksta_p (3261) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
Can from a rest area store near Köln. Aroma is mostly just sweetish malt and grains with a hint of alcohol. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a little bitterness in the finish. Body is medium. Very dull sweet malty stuff.

0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: würzig, alkoholisch, vergorene rote Früchte. Erscheinung: Hell kupferfarbenes Bier, flacher, weißer Schaum, akzeptable Gardine. Geschmack: leicht malzig süß, unangenehm bitter, unausgeglichen. Nachgeschmack: Pelzige Zunge, erhöhter Alkohol kommt leicht durch. Gesamt: da gibt es viele bessere.

Color dorado, espuma blanca nada duradera. Aroma ligero a malta. Sabor dulce y ligero amargor, refrescante, pero con poca gracia.

Melon, grain, golden with a good white head not very persistant, light body, alcohol is quietly well hidden, medium carbonation, taste of grain, quite sweet, bitter final...i know, like classic Carlsberg pilsener, is not a great beer but for many reasons, i love this elephant.
