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.

Back in the day I probably would have had a higher opinion but it just doesnt hold up to the craft brewing of today. Refreshing and light, but a noticeable skunk odor is detectable that ruins the overall impression.

Goldgelb, lig mit schwacher Blume! Malzig metallischer Geschmack, starke Alknoten. Zum Wegballern gut geeignet, hat aber wenig mit Genuss zu tun!

From old tasting notes. Deep gold color. Rocky white head. Light fruity tart aroma with a metallic background. Big flavorful sweet malt palate has noticeable hops. Heavy mouthfeel and noticeable alcohol prescence. Bittersweet finish and aftertaste.

Outrageous and I know my shit when it comes to outrageous drinks. I expected something uninteresting, I ended up with some cancerous liquid put in a can. Awful aroma and bitterness, not sure whats wrong with this one, it was acid as fuck, and in a very bad way. Hints of petrol and oil, piss-like aftertaste. Fuck this was bad. Really. Even served cold. Theres worse but dont count me in to buy this shit again. DISAPPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!

Bottle at home. Pours golden with small white head. Aroma is bread, malts and hay. Taste is sweet with some malts and hay and booze. Medium bodied. Boozy macro.

Clear, dark yellow pour with thick, lingering white foam. Sweet hay malt in the nose. The hops come out in the flavor with a grassy bitterness at the end, but the malt dominates. Medium / light body and light fizz. Slight alcohol burn at the end.
