   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 1/5   TASTE 1/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 3/20
GoufCustom (1773) - - JAN 29, 2013
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.

Flaska. Mörkbrun med ett smutsvitt skum. Dofter och smaker av malt, kavring och karamell. Avslutas halvsött, men inte på ett alltigenom negativt sätt.

adamnowek (2114) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 1, 2016
Bottle at IKEA Anderlecht. Had to disconnect from the IKEA wifi network to rate an IKEA beer because they block websites relating to alcohol. Anyway, it’s basically an overly carbonated tmavy with a funky blueberry finish.

berkshirejohn (6244) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2016
33cl bottle from IKEA, Reading. Pours the colour of well stewed tea with a thick cream head; earthy caramel aroma; lively in the mouth with a sweet caramel taste; then an unpleasant earthy bitterness, leading to a very thin finish.

Fisler (438) - Bamberg, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2016
Endlich kann man sich im IKEA zubimmeln, schauen wir mal, ob sich das auch lohnt. In der Nase ein Hauch von Röstmalz. Im Trunk wenig Geschmack, leicht süß, wie Malzbier light. Kein Abgang. Das wär in Schweden ein Starkbier, für mich dann doch eher ein klassisches Malm. Taugt vielleicht für Billy, für mich sicher nicht.

Hamirubi (577) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUL 20, 2016
33cl bottle at home (20 VII 2016). Pretty dull looking Tmavý brew for Ikea: A kind of a dark iced tea brew, not that thick dark brown with reddish gloom, and a swiftly dimishing white foam. The nose has keen alcohol notes, some casonade sugar, lots of malts. Interesting flavours for sure. The taste however has lots of watery elements, lots of iron. Yet, the basic mouthfeel is not unpleasant. There are some sweets in there, bread, enjoyable malts too, and the bitterness makes me think of a smooth stout beer. Nice carbonation, fine sweetish taste, a water balance.
