This is my First Review on this site,so please Excuse my less then stellar Review style,But I have been a Huge "Beer Enthusiast" for over 30 years, so I am no Noob when it comes to the frothy goodness of the wonderful world of Beer & Ales,I Know this does not qualify me as any type of expert in the least,but I do know what I Like..with that said,I Honestly can not understand why "Carlsburg Elephant" seems to be slagged and hated on so much,by so many..I mean this is a damn good beer![IMHO] It's Crisp,nice and hoppy & not too bitter,a perfect brew for these Hot Humid days of summer,very refreshing,with a nice finish,perhaps it does have a slight Alcohol taste that lingers a bit too long & a Head that is nothing to brag about,but overall I find it to be a Very Nice Refreshing Brew and quite drinkable,not the horrid stale, skunky swill so many reviewers make it out to be here in these forums,but thats the thing with Beer,what I enjoy and find to be a decent brew,the next guy may very well Hate,anyway my point is do not dismiss this brew if you have not tried it,because IMHO it's well worth checking out for yourself~Cheers.

Bright though mildly hazed, Elephant is gold-orange in color with a thin cap of head that nevertheless sticks around as it is and manages to drop thin spotting in moderation.
The smell is odd; indistinct sweetness, graininess and chemical cleaner notes make for some unpleasantness, though if I try hard there's a nice pale peach to the sweetness and a touch of grass hinting of hops.
It's grainy with some corn husk and fruits but, again, grassy hops do sneak through and graininess is toned down to something more like earthiness. Fruity sweetness up front leads to some cracker and gets a little drier as both malt and hops assert themselves to a point.
The graininess makes the otherwise crisp and not-quite-smooth feel a little harsher, while alcohol thins the back end.
