1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013
330ml bottle bought during a weekly sale at local IKEA store. Pale gold colour; Smallish head and white foam which disappears in less than 30 seconds; Minimal lacing and okay carbonation; Strong smell of malt and metal; Light body and watery palate, with taste of light malt and straw with metallic note. Light but evident hop bitterness with dry after taste. Fairly easily to mouth.
Comments: I don’t expect much really and I am correct. While its metallic taste is barely tolerable, the same cannot be said about its metal-laden smell, which is so repelling that I finished only half the stuff and the rest is drain pours. Stick with the furniture, not the beer.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Soft cereal notes
Appearance: Amber color with a nice hazy liquid and a soft white head. It is its strongest feature.
Taste: Light sweet touches and medium bitterness, even with sour notes (the contrast makes a good mixture).
Palate: Very soft and subtle. Light body with thin texture and soft carbonation. Short finish that doesn’t leave anything behind.
Overall: Weak beer, but a nice one to have in summer. Refreshing without leaving alcohol flavours behind.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cl bottle @ Ikea Gent. Very clear golden colour with a nice white head. Refreshing hoppy aroma. Taste is good at first, some sweet malts with a bitter aftertaste, but feels fishy and artificial after a few sips. Better than expected though.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle from IKEA, Reading. A straw coloured pour with a loose white head; grassy aroma; crisp grassy taste with some fizz and a corn syrup body; then a grassy finish. Not too bad for a cheap lager.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
33cl bottle at home (17 VIII 2016). Sparkly, bright and clear orange-yellow-golden coloured ale with snow white, frothy and light, pretty long lasting collar. The nose is full of grassy hops, backed with almost pilsner malts and perhaps a little oxidation. These flavours are quite alright for a milded carbonated pale lager, although they also have a kind of unnatural, artificial feeling too. Body is very light, rather mint than water, and the palate is quite sweetish. Some lingering dirt aspects or even corn features aren’t well hidden. Behind this taste there is a malts sharpness which I like - almost cara-like. But there is an unappealing particle board and cabbage smell in there as well. The bitterness is soft and a that too subtle. Not bad, you know, for an IKEA branded lager beer.
