1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Funny beer with light copper look and faint beige head. Malty and grainy aroma, not so bad. Malty and mid sweet taste but ultimately watery after. Medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Light body, thin feel, average carbonation, short finish. Don’t buy it, not worth it.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ IKEA bologna. It pours dark brown with a small light brown head on top. Light bodied but with a malty taste (roast and caramel). Light bitterness. Not bad at all. Considered the price, a good session lager beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown bottle of 330 ml, bought at IKEA, Duiven. Label is exactly the same as the Ol Ljus Lager, only with the colours reversed. ABV is 4,7%. Poured into a lager glass.
Very dark amber colour, with a nice two finger beige, creamy head. Very good retention and average lacing left behind. No activity in the glass.
Aroma is sweet, with very obvious caramel notes.
Taste is light roasted malts and some caramel as well. A bit metallic.
Medium body and light carbonation.
Again, nothing to be really impressed, but quite drinkable.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
from Erzbierschof - clear brown beer with a poor and chaotic foam left; aroma of popcorns and paper; neutral and medium-bodied at best; some harsh bitterness and notes of cola and popcorn in the finish - is this brewery unable to brew something drinkable ?
