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.

Poured golden with a decent white, frothy head. Sweet malt aroma with a slight taste of alcohol. I remember this as one of my first imports back in the early 80s and loving it. Not so great now with so many more choices, but good memories and not a bad bee

From a 12 oz bottle. Pours light translucent gold amber with minimal carbonation. Sweet fruity aroma with a tad of skunk. Sweet bitter taste that lingers. Similar to a weak Heineken with linger. Very interesting.

Malty, a bit sweet beer, strong. It's easy to drink, the taste is interesting a smell is quite good.

From Apr 2008 This one pours a pale gold with a large but quickly shrinking head of foam. Very bubbly looking. The smell is of sweet malt and grain. The taste is very sweet with a lot of grain going with it and, the way this one goes, it doesn't even come close to tasting good. There's some bitterness there as well mostly in the finish but... Wow. This is a very rough brew and I'm going to find it hard to finish the bottle and not *just* because of the abv. This is a ghastly beer. Ok, I can't take it any more....down the drain.

Old rating rerated 27.10.2017, 0,33l can @ home:
Nice fizzy-creamy mediumlasting head, light golden straw colored. Aroma is very mild grassy, sap, wet hay, minerals, grass, cereal, alcohol, bubblegum. Taste is harsh mineraly, weeds, metal tank, bark, paper, medicine, grass, alcohol. Medium to longlasting bitterness, harsh medical mouthfeel. Crap!

An odd beer according to beer buddy. Some people love it some people hate it. I enjoyed it. Very malty but A pronounced bitterness that was well-balanced. I found it refreshing and very drinkable. However my last sip was warm and I did not care for it warm at all. By the way I only had this one other time and I still remember it I was in my early 20s and it was at ono's in Clifton. I remember liking it then ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Una cervesa comercial que no val la pena ni tastar... és un excés d'alcohol total!

Not sure on the low ratings on this beer. Great with meals...roast lamb. Smoked fish. Golden pour with nice hop and malt balance per my tastes. Solid brew to me. Skál til Carlsberg
