COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottled. For a malt liquor this is okay, but it’s not great by any means. Nothing exciting and pretty bland.

Atom (1628) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2015
330mL bottle pours a clear orange with a medium white head. Sweet corn and pale malt aroma. Taste similar to aroma kind of stale with some alcohol.

칼스버그-엘레& 7.2% 코끼리 라벨이 인상적이라 집어들어 마시고나니 카스레드의 추억...자세히 보니 칼스버그의 알콜 부스트 버젼. 싼값에 취하려는 욕망은 한국이나 유럽이나 마찬가지... 라이프치히,독& 조건의 홉과 몰트에 알콜을 추가하면 알코홀냄새만 역하게 올라오고, 반대로 미국 중서부 바이블 벨트지역의 동일한 조건의 알코홀만 3.2도로 낮춘 맥주들은 취하기 전에 두통부터 찾아온다능... https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

TEJA (1525) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Can from Systembolaget, Sweden. High white lasting head. Thinn golden color. Soapy malty taste with a medium bitterness. A bit hight alcohole that sticks out in the taste like if you added a shot too your beer.

euniceradio (67) - Colton, California, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Pours gold blonde. Head thicker than I expected. Actually laced quite nicely. Aroma of bread, chemical sweetness, malt liquor and light grass. Taste is similar with a tad of hop grass bitter on the finish and a helping of alcohol. Not bad for a light beer in a green bottle.

Really had low expectations since its a green bottle beer. Actually was pretty decent.

Alengrin (2928) - BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2015
The descendant of a Scandinavian-style Bock beer Carlsberg already made decades ago, but in its current form, this is just another Euro strong lager aimed at alcoholics. Tasted it fifteen or so years ago when it was still 8% ABV, so this rating is from very old notes. Stable, snow white head over a clear, golden blonde beer; grainy, some malt sweetness, sugary and somewhat cloying sweetness too, a hint of chemical acidity and lots of booze in the finish (as in the nose), with a hint of grassy hops. Never liked this style; this is not the very worst example of it, but far from the best either.

Officially the worst beer I’ve had on RateBeer. Although I’ve certainly jad worse. Budweiser would be an example.
