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.
