Bottled, 330ml from Ikea, Milton Keynes, Bucks. Gold with white head. Malt lead beer, crisp, biscuit malt, water biscuit, a slight metallic edge but not too much. There is a slight flowery hop presence later on, a hint of dahlia perhaps along with orange. It’s reasonable really.

Bottle 330 ml at IKEA Kållered, Göteborg. At the IKEA restaurant, on September 15, 2013.
AS "IKEA - Öl Ljus Lager - Lager Beer".
Clear golden color, white head that settles to almost nothing fairly fast. Sweet, malty, sugary scent. Sweet, malty, stale taste. Stale and DMS aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
Like a standard cheap macro pale lager.
Best thing about this beer was the cap with some IKEA humor that a bottle opener was not included.

Very weak sweetish malty aroma. The flavour is also mild. There’s some sweetness, mild bitterness and malt. Very easy and boring Lager.
