330ml bottle bought during a weekly sale at local IKEA store. Pale gold colour; Smallish head and white foam which disappears in less than 30 seconds; Minimal lacing and okay carbonation; Strong smell of malt and metal; Light body and watery palate, with taste of light malt and straw with metallic note. Light but evident hop bitterness with dry after taste. Fairly easily to mouth.

Comments: I don’t expect much really and I am correct. While its metallic taste is barely tolerable, the same cannot be said about its metal-laden smell, which is so repelling that I finished only half the stuff and the rest is drain pours. Stick with the furniture, not the beer.

Cheap but solid does not describe this beer the same way it would describe most of IKEA’s offerings. I’ll stick to meatballs and lingonberry drank.

Blonde dorée sans carbo ni collet. Aromes de contreplaqué assorti de particule de callage en maïs. Liquide petillant sans gout très bien pour accompagner les boulettes de renne !

Bottle at IKEA, Athens Greece. Color clear yellow with small white head. Aroma grain, some grass. Taste sweet, grass, grain.

330ml bottle from Ikea in Moscow. Finally a Swedish tick after many unrateable ciders! Pours pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma of grass and hay. Taste is grain, pale malts. Small amount of bitterness. Not bad but overpriced lager (1.85 euros).

Standard lager served extremely cold. But does not improve when left time to heat up. Just funny to see that IKEA will soon have more "fan" stuff than a regular football club

pityu (302) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 12, 2015
Bottle - Clear pale yellow colour, thin white head. Aroma of hay, cardboard, weak grassy hops. Taste is empty, some malty sweetness, grass. Light body, average carbonation. Drinkable, but boring.

DutchMark (293) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 10, 2015
OK larger. Malty with some bitter hops and pleasant carbonation. But what’s the point of buying a 95 cents larger at Ikea that tastes just like any 60 cents larger at the supermarket? I like some of the foodstuff at ikea because it is typically Swedish and different than what I am used to. But this product is not. Boring.

Small, white head over metallic golden beer, big-bubbled. Dry, bit dusty pale malts, bit herbal. Same in the flavour: dry to medium sweet pale malts, lightly toasted. Feels more carbonated than the visual aspect. Finish is truly watery. Overall: lager, as in pale-.

Pale golden with white good head. Malty aroma with little dried fruits. Taste is bready with caramel and little hops. Way better than expected!

330ml pale green bottle, filtered, from Ikea, Southampton. Sweet, thin, herby, inoffensive. Quite drinkable. A little soap late in the finish.
