3/5  rDev +7.5%

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.

Quick review from notes..
Not much of a head.. Very little lacing to speak of..
Very euro lager... Sweet malt just a touch of hops.. Really hides the higher ABV. Pretty thin but cool and refreshing. Overall not a bad euro lager.. Really makes me think that this is a higher ABV version of Heineken.

A nice head and crisp mouthfeel, this strong Euro-lager is refreshing on a hot day. The aroma is distinctive, with a toasted biscuit hint. The taste hides the alcohol well, finishing clean. Not the best beer, but not as poor as many of the reviews suggest.
