Bought a Mix-A-Six Pack from MacDoodles in Joplin, MO for $9.85 and added a 11.2 FL. OZ. / 330 mL bottle of this to it. Poured from the Green Bottle with an elephant on the front into a Shaker Glass. Has no freshness date on the bottle.
Aroma- Tons of sweetness and noble hops in the aroma. Strong malts too.
Appearance- Pours a 1 finger head that has good head retention. Has a clear light golden body. Leaves a good amount of lace behind.
Flavor- Both yeast and hops are the main characters in the taste. Light-Medium Bitterness and very sweet on the finish.
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonaton, Smooth, and has a bite on the end with malts and light hops included.
Overall Impression- I remember having this one @ Growlers Pub in St. Louis but wasn't such a beer advocate at the time so probably chugged it. This one has a very strong profile while being very drinkable. Enjoyed but wouldn't be my typical style I would go to.

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.
