2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle at home (17 VIII 2016). Sparkly, bright and clear orange-yellow-golden coloured ale with snow white, frothy and light, pretty long lasting collar. The nose is full of grassy hops, backed with almost pilsner malts and perhaps a little oxidation. These flavours are quite alright for a milded carbonated pale lager, although they also have a kind of unnatural, artificial feeling too. Body is very light, rather mint than water, and the palate is quite sweetish. Some lingering dirt aspects or even corn features aren’t well hidden. Behind this taste there is a malts sharpness which I like - almost cara-like. But there is an unappealing particle board and cabbage smell in there as well. The bitterness is soft and a that too subtle. Not bad, you know, for an IKEA branded lager beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl quick&cold grab-and-go from the lethal hot dog checkout line, 2016-5. Bref: obvious, bit too good to pass up: a youngishly clad adult skunk treads through the moist mulch of birch plywood shavings before taking a long vattenfall dusch. Toasted leek chips and TUC cracker dunked in mineral water. Not offensive, well-made bland and functional, like its host.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Intense malty aroma of grains with some grassy notes. Medium body with soft carbonation. The taste is a little unpleasant sweet malts but a little harsh with some bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml. bottle sampled from IKEA obv. Clear honey golden, quickly gone head. Nose is very sweet vegetable oil & sweet cooked cabbage combined with surprisingly big sweet banana, light skunk. Taste is sweet corn, big cooked cabbage, low skunk, combined with big sweet banana & actually some lightly mineral bitterness. Oily body. Added sweet banana & some basic lightly mineral bitterness keep this one a bit above average for a pale lager. Too much vegetable & some skunk here to really flourish in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an attractive golden with a minimal head. Malty, slightly fruity nose. A slight malty sweetness on the tongue, with just a touch of bitterness. Markedly less bitter than the dark version, but still plenty of flavour. Not complex but this is fine!
