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.

At a whooping 7.2% - you would think that this was more like 72%. You sense that kick. This is a legendary beer, before cranking up the alcohol was cool. This is still a classic European beer. A nice foamy head in pouring sticks around. Pour this into a pewter tankard and you will think that you are back n the 15th century. Th bottle is absolutely beutiful.

Fashawn (179) - Montesarchio, ITALY - OCT 2, 2014
Una birra onesta, che sa di malto e poco altro. In bocca, quindi, corrispondenza con il miele d’acacia, poco lievito ma appena percettibile. Amaro finale giusto. Buona birra.

Block (1489) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 27, 2014
I drink any beer I can get my hands on. Having said that, this beer was bad. It had some strange and off-putting flavors which actually made me think that this beer was awful. Light, weird flavors. That’s about it.
