330ml bottle along with the IKEA Ol Ljus lager bought during a weekly sale at local IKEA store.Clear dark reddish brown colour; Minimal head and off-white foam which disappears in less than 20 seconds; No lacing and okay carbonation; strong smell of dark malt and cheap soy sauce; Light body and very watery palate, with taste of coffee sludge, faint malt and straw. Light but evident hop bitterness with lingers with dry after taste.

Comments: After the terrible experience I had with IKEA’s Ol Ljus lager, the expectation with this one has to be lowered. Turns out it was just as bad but in an entirely different manner. Its smell is a poor-man Mackeson XXX gone rotten, and if you can get pass that, its artificial and bad coffee taste will post a challenge to many beer tasters. Adding the non-head and watery body, this combination just doesn’t add up. Stay away.

caesar (6180) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle from local IKEA, BB 28102018, large sample. Clear redbrown color, short frothy head. Aroma of rye bread, bit earthy, sweet sugary, touch of coffee. Bit roasty and ryebready bitterness, some sugary sweetness. Bit too sugary, but certainly not tasteless. Just mediocre.

jamaty (1621) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 14, 2016
Marrón rojiza translucida, espuma ocre. Aroma malteado dulce. En boca gas abundante apenas cuerpo, sabor dulce, sirope. También café, algo de caramelo. No cabía esperar mucho.

Una grata sorpresa, quizás sorprenda al que la pruebe, ya que uno parte con expectativas muy bajas, pero la cerveza es algo más que solo aceptable. Bastante equilibrada, entra bien y un toque dulce pero no excesivo. Una cerveza sencilla, sin complicaciones ni pretensiones, si la hubiese en supermercado sería una muy buena opción para una cerveza de a diario, tendré que investigar quien la fabrica para ellos.

The beer looks quite nice. The beer has a beautiful color, cherry red with a little touch of brown. The beer is quite clear, you can look trough it quite clearly. The beer doesn’t look to fizzle, only a few small bubbles are rising to the top. The beer pours a thick head of rough fuzzy foam. The bulk collapse quickly, but a thin drape remains to cover the beer. The smell of the beer is nice. It reminds me of bock beer. The smell has cherry, a little roast, some barley. The smell is both sweet and bitter, quite nice. The aroma’s could have been a little stronger. The taste is a little les than the smell. The taste is a little bitter and has a metallic flavor. The sweetness of the smell fades towards the background in the smell. That is a pity. The sweetness could have been a little bit stronger in the smell. Than it would be great. But keep in mind that this beer is made by a furniture manufacturer. This makes the beer a lot better.

A transparant, but very dark ruby-colored beer, with a firm layer of brown foam. It has a sweet aroma of caramel-malt and alcohol. The taste is quite bitter, but unfortunately also a bit "watery". A slightly bitter aftertaste remains for a while. Een transparant, maar enorm donker robijngekleurwd bier met een stevige, bruine kraag. Een zoet aroma van karamel-mout en alcohol. De smaak is vrij bitter, maar verder helaas ook erg waterig. Een licht bittere nasmaak blijft even hangen.
