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.

330ml dark bottle, filtered, from Ikea, Southampton. Saw it and thought I would grab it as it’s very rare I visit Ikea. I really didn’t expect it to be any good (it’s from Ikea after all, do they do ANYTHING any good?), and sure enough it’s pretty crap. Soapy with refrigerator ice aroma and flavour. Not sure what it’’s made from. It’s fairly odd tasting and vaguely unpleasant. To be fair I did finish the bottle, but I wouldn’t like another one. Ever again.

Piuttosto scialba. All’olfatto sembra quasi promettere bene con un leggero aroma torrefatto ma quando la andiamo ad assaggiare risulta essere piuttosto anonima senza gusti che spiccano ed invogliano alla beva. Anche l’apparenza non é un granché con un colore "Coca cola" ed una schiuma quasi inesistente.

0,33 Flasche aus der IKEA Fürth. Karamellfarbenes Bier ohne Schaum aber reichlich Kohlensäure. Riecht malzig, karamellig, würzig. Schmeckt auch so. Ölig im Mund

MarkoNm (1746) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a decent tan colored head. Mild roasty malt aroma, some caramel. Taste follows, slightly sweet and roasty, mild bitterness. Not bad.

Bottle at Ikea, Malmö. Clear ruby colored with a small off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel and bread. Malty flavor of caramel and bread with notes of dried fruits and hops. Hoppy finish.

Cool_Bond (2039) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2015
Good malty, lightly roasted dark malt aroma and flavor. Good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. A really good obscurity to the food. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Ulysse (320) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 17, 2015
Minimal head. Looks like coke poured in a glass. Tastes lager with a tiny roasting in top of it. Abundant carbonation. Not worth drinking.

dogbomb (1072) - ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown ale with a thick, lasting light tan head. Nose is sweet toffee and marzipan. Taste is... odd. There’s sweetness, a bitter toffee, burnt sugar and the finish is just a bit unbalanced to be enjoyable. Blerg.
