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.

This godawful porridge has been rated by my fellow "experts" as being twice as good as bud light. I’m drinking it right now. It tastes like they put Mickeys in a can with 40 pennies at the bottom and somone froze the beer, then got it really, really hot, then repeated the process 40 times and served. I did talk to The Penguin after I drank it, so its not ALL bad.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Drank from a can. Generic strong lager. Drinkable and gets you drunk.

Not to bad under the right circumstanes, but a rather powerful lagerstyle beer.Packs 7.2% alc vol and it is quite easy drinkable when served cold.If served lukewarm, it is way to tick and malty. A small glass of jeagermeister with this one is a summertime moment for me.

Clear, golden colour poured from the can. Sweet malt on the nose. Similar malty flavour that is quite light on the palate considering the ABV.

Maits (479) - ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2017
Clear amber beer with some little thick white head. Aroma is full of malts with metallic notes. Taste is mild sweet malty, grass and some alcohol in background. Overall drinkable.

3.9
mviljamaa (176) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Pours with a good fluffly head. Color is clear and bright lager. Aroma is malty and has typical lager aromas. Typical bulk lager hoppiness. Palate is fairly well balanced and pleasant. Has both dry and oily components. This has the normal Carlsberg taste, but is noticeably stronger, more alcoholic and richer. It’s certainly a "better" Carlsberg and not bad at all.

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