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.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Green 330ml bottle: BBD of 15 Jun 2013: poured into a very tall and thin ’Harboe Beer’ vase shaped glass (I don’t own any Swedish beer glasses).
The flute showed off the beer nicely: good amber/golden body, bright and clear, on top a rich foaming head of pure white.
Odourless to be honest and almost tasteless too.
The brew is slightly malty and semi-sweet, but it offers nothing for my senses to get excited about. A bog standard, cheap tasting supermarket lager/pilsner: it didn’t upset me but it was boring.
Just an average lager and a bit of a disappointment all round: it looked like it might have some spunk, but sadly it didn’t.

Bottle. Aroma malty pilsenery, light hops. Clear golden colour. Stable white head. Taste is slightly watery, light metallic off-flavour. Otherwise the pilsner characteristics are here under the flaws. Some astringent sourness towards the finish.
