3.29/5  rDev +17.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a yellow color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to nearly nothing after a minute or two

S: A bit of sweet maltiness, some graininess, and light fruitiness. Not too much else, but what's there is actually decently enjoyable

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the maltiness which is mostly sweet and a little bready. The husky graininess comes in next, followed by a bit of fruitiness and a touch of solventy alcohol. Finishes with more light malty sweetness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Luckily got a few non-skunked bottles and I think that made it quite a bit more enjoyable. Not complex by any means, but as a higher abv brew that's meant to taste like a fizzy yellow beer, it's not bad at all. I like to think of this style as the Euro style of American malt liquor. With that outlook, this is actually a half-decent brew. I wouldn't risk multiple purchases just because of the green bottle and high risk of skunkiness, but I have no shame in rating this with a score that is quite a bit higher than average

Elephant Beer - Carlsberg Danmark A/S. Oured from the bottle into a glass, it's got no head or lacing, and the average pale golden of "Euro" brews.

The scent is robust with malt. Not much else going on here

Bold malt taste with not very much hop presence.

Clean finish on the mouthfeel. No lingering elements.

Overall a 3 for Elephant Beer - Carlsberg Danmark A/S. I won't buy this brew again.

Elephant Beer brewed by Carlsberg Denmark A/S with an ABV of 7.2%. This brew pours out a nice amber color with a small white head. This brew has a the look of an American Lager. Keep in mind this brew was pours out of a green bottle. The smell is skunky with some grains and hops. The taste is smooth with some skunkiness. For having an ABV of 7.2% it is really smooth. I'm not big on the taste of this brew. The mouthfeel is ok but it has some skunkyness. Overall I'm giving this brew a 3 out of 5. Not the best but far from the worst. I may by this brew again. I may buy this brew again. I would like to try this brew in a can.
