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.

rather weak and somewhat offensive aroma. Taste’s a little bitter, but not in a good way. I am sure its better fresh in Copenhagen.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2016 Aus der Büchse getrunken (Supermarktkauf). Klares Gold mit schöner Schaumkrone. Neutral im Aroma. Der Alkoholgehalt siegt über die Industriehopfung.

500ml can BB 7/7/17 Fruity aroma. Light straw with good head. Mild bitterness - quite sweet for a lager. Alcohol content apparent in the finish. Better than a lot of other Euro-lagers on the market.

scooterbub (1031) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - SEP 11, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours a golden color with thin white head. Taste is of malt, grain, dark fruit, grass and alcohol. Cleaner aroma. Has a decent body, with a boozy finish. Not bad, but could be balanced out by some more malt or hops.

Tjomleif (144) - NORWAY - AUG 29, 2016
500ml. Can. Clear, medium golden color with small, frothy, white head that leaves fair lacing. Aroma of bread, grain and toasted malts. Taste starts light sweet and corny, become light bitter for a moment, than turns to sweet finish again, with a lightnote of alcohol. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation and chalky finish. Just another booze beer..

Pours clear dark yellow, small white head. Aroma is grainy, lagery. Some alcohol. Taste is,softly grainy, slightly sweet, alcohol better hidden, just a bit of hops. Light to medium body. Frankly, in an inoffensive lager like this, less alcohol and less body m8ght have been better. Of course I am drinking it on a hot day after a bike ride.

Cerbier (696) - - AUG 14, 2016
0,5l Flasche. Goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Riecht angenehm malzig, dies wird auch zuerst im Geschmack bestätigt, wir aber im Verlauf immer metallischer und endet unangenehm bitter.
