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.

500mL can found in the ’closeout’ bin post Saint Patrick’s Day. I don’t know how it got mixed in with a bunch of UK beers...but another interesting beer to try on the cheap. Makes me remember Carlsberg beers consumed in Malawi as a Peace Corps volunteer and think back that none of them were this bad. It’s just a lot of alcohol in a golden yellow delivery product. I’d rather drink an IPA with the same abv if alcohol was the only reason to drink.

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.

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.

Pours a golden color with a thin head. Tastes of malt and bitter with a crisp finish. A solid session brew on a hot day.

BeerInHeaven (359) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2016
pours a faintly murky straw gold with a decent white bubbly head. Aroma is hay, grass, and stereotypical Euro "good skunk". Taste is semi-sweet malt. Some faint hops fade in. Clean finish with a lightly sweet linger. Not bad. Refreshing.
