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.

MRMedellin (170) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - APR 12, 2014
Clear golden beer, with small white head, malt and ginger aromas, medium body, strong acidity, not too much of the malt is felt, and the alcoholic content just kill the rest of the flavor, sadly not the best of the Carlsberg’s beers

330ml green bottle picked up at the state store
Clear golden with a small white head, spotty lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and cereal. Flavors of corn, yeast, grassy and alcohols
OK, wouldn’t drink again

beikes (132) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2014
Heavy and fruity and a little flat on the palate. Good brew none the less, and one of the better choices from Carlsberg.

KeefOz (763) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAR 1, 2014
BB 120614. Poured a clear golden colour with a few white bubbles forming a collar. Lacing virtually nil. Carbonation low with a few small and large bubbles. Aroma of sweet malty lager with an alcohol presence. Taste moderately sweet followed by acidic tartness which dominates (is not a bitterness); alcohol noticeable on back palate. Light body. Smooth mouthfeel. Alcohol and tartness dominate. Poor.

djoeye (894) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Aroma; alcoholic malts and hints of lemon. Warm golden clear body. 1 -2 finger pearl white head. Not much lacings. Taste; prickly lemon malts, grass, alcohol. Somewhat syrupy to palate. Finishes with alcoholic hops and some malts. Overall just another boozer. (33cl can abv7.2% b@Systembolaget Luleå Sweden, tasted@home Norway)

Unde (288) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Clear bright golden beer with really small head. Slight honey aroma, with barley malts and hints of alcohol. Malty, sweet honey and some alcohol coming through in the end. Medium body and very high carbonation makes this easy to drink, but not to enjoy.
