11.5 oz brown twist off bottle with no freshness date, this sample was brewed in Canada by Labatt. Thin creamy looking lace, very mild haze within the orange golden brew.
Clean solvent alcohol aroma with an underlying cloying sweetness and a rough graininess.
Pretty smooth with a moderate body and light carbonation. Thick husky grain flavour comes to the taste buds as the alcohol sneaks in with its solvent warmth. Faded hops in the back, sweet start to middle then the graininess and alcohol kick in and throws down a lightly astringently dry finish.
Bit more malt than the usual American malt liquor but still thin, not much to taste … it is more or less a beer that has a kick and sadly that is its greatest attribute.

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.
