   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 3/20

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013

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.

ThirstyBird (2094) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2015
Pours a clear chestnut color with a spongy looking tan head. The smell is roasted malt, dark bread, diluted brown sugar. The taste is dark bread, dull roasted malt sweetness ending with a hint of metallic and a touch of dryness. Light+ in body with average carbonation. Just OK.

Koelschtrinker (12439) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2015
Brotig trockener Beginn, steigende Bitterkeit. Trocken röstig herber Mittelteil, was sich zum Ende steigert. Es bleibt ein langweiliges Bier. 10/7/8/7/7/7

Foam: almost no head. Colour: dark red sure no brown or black. Aroma: ?? malt, a hint of ?? caramel. Taste: brown sugar, toasted malt, caramel, very watery, some sour bitter, but all together one of the worst dunkel beer I ever had, it would be better not buy it or tasted it.

TaxiDriver (1553) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. The smell of grass, light malty, some cola. The head is small, fizzy and pale beige. The body is dark brown. A malty taste, the finish is rather bitter. The body is light and dry with a normal carbonation.

Lele (236) - Padova, ITALY - APR 25, 2015
ASPETTO: praticamente è uguale alla coca cola, schiuma compresa. AROMA: si avverte soprattutto del tostato e del pane, comunque aroma poco pronunciato. GUSTO: come al naso, i sentori di crosta di pane e un po’ di tostato sono predominanti. Scorza di pane anche nel retrogusto. CONCLUSIONE: sinceramente mi aspettavo di peggio. Una birretta tranquilla, niente di particolare, ma contando che è una birra industriale, il confronto con le nostre Peroni e Moretti è spontaneo, e devo ammettere che le italiane escono umiliate.

Idiosynkrasie (4797) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 22, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, mahogany colour with small to average, frothy, diminishing, minimally lacing, beige head. Strawy, grainy aroma, hints of treacle. Taste is minimally sweet dark malty, a touch of treacle, dry, strawy counterpart. Adequately Småland-ish thrifty.
