Danish: Carlsberg Elephant er en sĺkaldt ”Bockbier” og blev brygget for fřrste gang i 1959. Den er vinřs og frugtig med smagsindtryk af ćbler, melon, banan og karamel afbalanceret af en třr bitterhed. Du fornemmer ogsĺ antydninger af egetrć, bark, nřdder og fyrrenĺle. 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.

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 (676) - - 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.

Lekker fris biertje, Drinkt zich makkelijk weg, iets te makkelijk gezien het alcoholpercentage. Fruitig aroma maar is in smaak weinig van te merken

mutz (898) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016
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.
