Carlsberg Elephant is a true Carlsberg classic. First launched in 1959, it is strong like an elephant in both flavour and alcohol content, offering adventurous beer drinkers across the continent a unique and exotic taste experience.
The colour is light golden amber and the foam white as the tip of the waves of the oceans. The ample use of malt gives Elephant a vinous and rich character. The high hop content in Elephant gives a masculine bitter bite to the beer.
The elephants on the beer’s label are inspired by the two pairs of life-size, elephant statues which form part of the main entrance to Carlsberg’s brewery in Copenhagen. The Elephant Gate has become a famous Danish landmark and gives visitors to the brewery a majestic welcome.
Carlsberg Elephant received 3 stars in the prestigious Superior Taste Awards 2006 from the international Taste & Quality Institute (iTQi) in Brussels.
Carlsberg Elephant goes very well with all spicy dishes, and it is particularly well suited for the Thai kitchen, Cajun dishes and Mexican food. It also goes well with rustic, European dishes with root vegetables and/or sauces. Carlsberg Elephant is also excellent with a wide variety of medium-strong cheeses.
