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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Copenhagen 1/6 2015. 50 cl can from Netto. A worried looking Elephant is taking a walk on the front of the can. Pours clear yellow with white head. Dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is quite malty and sweet. A little sharpness from the alcohol. Medium carbonation. Taste is sweet and grainy and heavy with alcohol. Aftertaste is heavy sweet. That this was considered to be a classic for many years seems like a mystery today. But you get a hell of a hangover.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a smell of corn, malt and some grass. not very exciting
Appearance- Pours a golden yellow with a small thick white head.
Taste- Has a very good flavor. I was anticipating the Euro green glass skunk devil, but that was not the case. A nice caramel flavor with a strong alcohol mix.
Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a slightly oily texture that goes well with the flavor.
Overall- I noticed there is not a lot of love for the "Elephant" rating wise. I thought it was really good for the style and it goes down very well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: Pils grain meets cereal with light to moderate sweetness; hops are on the woody side. Appearance: Light copper pour with little wisps of carbonation; the foamy white head settles down into a slightly bubbly skin pretty quickly. Flavor: Pils/cereal up front, but also quickly and surprisingly woody; the sweetness of the grains is pretty well met by the hops here. The finish is lightly bitter, still woody, and mostly dry. Palate: Light to medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Really just a bigger Carlsberg Pils, a beer I don’t particularly enjoy. Still, I feel like this is better than many of it’s counterparts, which almost always come off to me as alcohol delivery devices (Rinkuskiai Werewolf, I’m looking at you!). "High Boost" and a good value- a sixer in my area is $6.99.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
DATE TASTED: May 1, 2015... GLASSWARE: Hennepin pokal... OCCASION: attractive looping fence of white lacing; mostly clear, light yellow body that generates reasonable effervescence... APPEARANCE: clear, orange amber body with mild effervescence; thin, steady, snow-white head that frames the body attractively; appropriate lacing.. AROMA: pungent maltiness that suggests envelope gum, light floral hops, and medicinal alcohol ...PALATE: thin and oily early; lingering, warm, and carbonated respectfully... TASTE: beefy sweetness that sours slightly at the finish; largely malty; cloying graininess ...OVERALL: a fat taste becomes a flat finish, with the alcohol content leaking into the profile against my will--not quite smooth and not quite flavorful; a big beer that drags...
