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.

This godawful porridge has been rated by my fellow "experts" as being twice as good as bud light. I’m drinking it right now. It tastes like they put Mickeys in a can with 40 pennies at the bottom and somone froze the beer, then got it really, really hot, then repeated the process 40 times and served. I did talk to The Penguin after I drank it, so its not ALL bad.

Hop bitterness in aroma. Clear golden colour with excellent head. Big malt flavour up front with balanced bitter hop finish. Very big body with medium to high carbonation.

Continuing my abuse for tonight, I’m signing into this one. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a hazy glossy yellow color with a clear enough transparency letting light carbonation to be seen rising. The head was there but dissipated within less than twenty seconds. Don’t ask me about lacing, there wasn’t any. The smell was skunky oily grass. The taste wasn’t any better. Was there anything? On the palate, there’s a whole lot of harshness pummeling my tongue into submission with a long slick feel just flowing over my tongue. Overall, pale lager, Euro Strong Lager, Imperial Lager, whatever one wants to call this, I probably wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole. Let Satan have this back for I would never storm the gates of beer hell for this one. Give me a cider from Inbev first.

Lys brun farge med hvitt skum. Lukter korn og malt. Smaker noe fruktig og alkohol. Lettdrikkelig med medium kullsyre. Lett og lite bitter avslutning.

Drank from a plastic cup on a beach. Strong beer with a strong taste. Quite alcoholey but there’s also some malts in the taste. Not very good.

Vighals (1007) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2014
Gylden brun klar med høyt tett hvitt skum som ligger godt. Malt, korn og en del fruktighet, noe mot banan. Kjenner alkoholen, men ikke forstyrrende, som jeg husker fra mine yngre dager. Overraskende godt gjensyn. Noe bitterhet, medium + søtlig. Lite kullsyre

Hay, grass, spruce, alcohol. Too heavy on the alcohol. Overshadows the taste. No new favorite.

Holmen1 (2315) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
Boks fra Netto, Nørrebro: endelig et gjensyn med denne som jeg ikke har drukket siden studietiden, og da med spektakulær virkning. Smak og aroma er først og fremst preget av alkoholsødmen, kombinert med en beskjeden maltprofil. Overraskende slank og lettdrikkelig for sin omdreiningshastighet. Tar ikke et nytt gjensyn.

Pours clear amber with medium, creamy off-white head. Sweet with a light bitterness, very alcoholic, easy to drink. Aroma is skunky, light banana. Not really good.
