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.

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.

Cool_Bond (2003) - 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 (298) - 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 (1051) - 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.
