Carlsberg Elephant is a very clear, very sparkling, light golden beer. It has a thin, white head that vanishes quickly. It has an aroma of light grain, malt extract and skunk. It's medium bodied, pretty smooth and pretty sparkling with a reasonably clean finish. It's quite sweet. It tastes like malt extract and fusel oil with an aftertaste of burnt rubber. This is pretty unpleasant. Is this malt liquor?

Bottle poured into pint glass
no freshness date

A: light brown, no head retention, there was a two finger head for almost a half minute
S: Good, hops and dark malts most evident

T: Miserable, water with some weird grasses

M: Water

This is a beer I would not have again. I would accept it if it was on draft to see if there would be a difference.

Decent smell, I like stronger beers so I was looking forward to it. But after I tasted it I was disappointed. This was not good at all, bad after taste too. I was tasted much smoother beers at much higher alcohol concentration. So overall I see no reason to buy this beer.

pours a 1" frothy off-white head with moderate, lasting lacing. from the bottle a slimy yellow turns to a proper, full golden body.

smells like your typical hoppy, boozy, "green" lager. strong.

tastes might pale and mighty hoppy. pungent. dense like a euro lager it's suppose to be.

mouthfeel is mighty boozy. tantalizing, bright on-bringing to a crisp, dry finish.

boozy beer. in the smell, taste, feel, and after effects.
