1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013
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.

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.
