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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml. bottle sampled from IKEA obv. Clear honey golden, quickly gone head. Nose is very sweet vegetable oil & sweet cooked cabbage combined with surprisingly big sweet banana, light skunk. Taste is sweet corn, big cooked cabbage, low skunk, combined with big sweet banana & actually some lightly mineral bitterness. Oily body. Added sweet banana & some basic lightly mineral bitterness keep this one a bit above average for a pale lager. Too much vegetable & some skunk here to really flourish in my opinion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an attractive golden with a minimal head. Malty, slightly fruity nose. A slight malty sweetness on the tongue, with just a touch of bitterness. Markedly less bitter than the dark version, but still plenty of flavour. Not complex but this is fine!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold color with very sligh off white foam. Aromas of light hops and malts, has some very low tones of greens but quite weak. Palate, medium body with silky smooth texture and very low carbonation, leaving light hop dry finish. Taste is quite sweet and crisp of light hops, light malts and fresh green peas. Overall, not bad! Better than expected, not amazing or outstanding but definatly not bad either.

Überraschend süß, malzbetont. Getreide, Heu, Mais. Ansonsten recht flach, aber dennoch nicht wirklich schlecht.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from local IKEA, BB 18 10 2016, large sample. Clear golden color, short frothy head. Aroma of grainy malt, bit spicy hop, quite typical german classic pils with slight skunky and bit herbal notes. Soft to medium bitter in taste, some extra malty sweetness not usually found in pale lagers. Which makes it quite full bodied. Pretty good for what I expected actually.

chutný svetlý ležiak pripomínajúci plzeň, čo platí pri výrobkoch IKEA (lacné=dobré) sa tu uplatňuje rovnako
