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.

Very simple, but not bad really. Very dry, and with a distinct yeast profile. Neither sweet, nor bitter. Very easygoing and refreshing, and would prefer this to many other lagers. And mind you, IKEA stresses that you’ll need additional tools to open the bottle! (The message on the bottle cap is really hilarious stuff!)

dogbomb (1053) - ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle. Straw gold with a thin white head. Nose is the classic pils with jots of lemons. Taste is more bitter than expected for a lager and imparts some lemon sherbert flavours. Not great, but ok for the price. Surprising.

Batavi (150) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2015
Fles gekocht bij Ikea Breda, uitgeschonken in Warsteiner fluitje. Goudgeel helder lagerbier met kleine witte schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Lichte aroma's van gerstemout, mais, hop iets zeepachtig. De smaak is eenvoudig, mild en dorstlessend. Gerstemout, mais, licht zoet. Flinke carbonatie met een zacht, mild mondgevoel en een zachte waterige afdronk met een lichte hopbitter. Behoorlijk standaard lagerbier, maar ik heb wel eens slechtere op. Het zou mooi zijn als Ikea echte Scandinavische speciaalbieren zou gaan verkopen. Die lagerbieren smaken vrijwel allemaal hetzelfde, waar ze ook vandaan komen.

Fľaša 330 ml z IKEA Bratislava. Zlatistá farba, vysoká hustá pena, sladovo chmeľová aróma, s citrusovým nádychom. Chuď sladkastá, sladová, stredná rezkosť, tráva a byliny na konci. Celkom slušné pivo.

330ml Flasche. Klar und golden. Minimale Schaumkrone, sofort verschwindend. Wenig aromatisch und sehr mild. Aber doch erstaunlich lecker.
