3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle of 330 ml, bought at IKEA, Duiven. It must be relatively new, at least here, since they were not there last year and they’re still not listed on their website.
First of all, this is an actual beer, as in the final product, and not a beer kit containing water, malts, hops and instructions on how to make it yourself (get it? because it’s from IKEA, and that’s what you do with everything else bought from there, haha, hilarious)
Ok, this is a lager, poured into a lager glass it gave me a golden yellow coloured beer, with two fingers of white, soapy head, with very good retention. Lots of activity in the glass that seems that it never stops.
Aroma is quite strong, aromatic hops as with every other lager, with some malts on the background.
Taste is also typical lager one, quite sweet at first, with a long bitter aftertaste. Much better than I expected.
Medium to full body with high carbonation.
Well, I didn’t expect it to be that good. It won’t blow your mind but it’s an honest lager, plus now I have a reason to join my girlfriend on her visits there.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Not so good, this beer leaves a nasty bitter aftertaste in your stomache, almost like stomache acid. Don’t drink this.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
33cl bottle, "Light Lager Beer". The crown of the bottle made me laugh (bottle opener not included).
Appearance: very clear blonde beer with good looking white head, rather stable.
Nose: a lot of grains noticeable, a little metallic already... some lemon, some malts, reminds me of a regular pilsner a lot.
Taste: a very weird taste, a lot of malts noticeable, some sweetness brought in to compensate the bitterness, some grass.
For me this was a less than average pilsner...
