2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl Bottle from IKEA. Brown colour, beige head. Aroma is very faint, some soft sweet caramel, hint of chocolate malts. Flavour is medium-sweet, light malty, caramel, light-bitter finish. Light-bodied, soft and somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Not bad, but extremely boring and near tasteless.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Better than his pale brother, but still an inferior brew. IKEA should invest more in theirs beers or just focus on their furniture.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Roligt att Ikea satsar på egen öl, bättre än förväntat men vattnig och ganska tam.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 0,33L. Dark brown intense color, discreet bubbly presence, good foamy head of medium resistance. Moderate alcoholic scent, notes of braced cereals and dampen grains. Discreet bitter body, not much equilibrate with a watery final. Frankly I thought worse.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. L12241. BB 28/08/2013. From England. Thanks to Jani & Eetu!
Dark reddish brown colour with a small greyish white head.
Caramel sweetness, malt and mild notes of coffee and hops in the aroma.
The flavour is quite dull. There’s sugary sweetness, bready malt, mild bitterness and some notes of chocolate. Thin. Boring but better than the Ljus Lager.
