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.

Klar, duftet noch ganz nett. Karamel, Malz, Laub, Würze, Kupfer...im Mund aber alles andere als kraftvoll. Wie wässriges Malzbier. 0,33l Flasche von IKEA ;)...

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2018 Une bière brune douce, crémeuse et très maltées avec des saveurs de café torréfié. Pas terrible, sans surprise...

Bottle from Ikea. Dark color, off white head. Roasted malts, lagery, not that bad actually

Piana szybko ucieka do zera. W aromacie lekki karmelek, trochę skórki od chleba. W smaku mocno słodkie, a przy tym boleśnie puste - choć trzeba przyznać, że wspomnianej skórki od chleba jest tutaj sporo. Wysoko nasycone. Jest słabo, acz i tak myślałem, że będzie znacznie gorzej.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2017 Barwa brunatna, przejrzyste i klarowne. Lekka i niska piana. W zapachu kwas cytrynowy i słód. W smaku delikatny karmel i ponownie kwasek cytrynowy. Puste, nijakie, smakowo obojętne.

clear brown body with capuccino head. Toastand and "salamoia" flavour. Thin body that massimaze the alcohol perception. The carbonation is wrong but the bitterness its oket with the style .

Bottle at home in Hackney - picked up at the Tottenham area branch. Pours clear reddish brown with a creamy, khaki head. The aroma holds ripening berries, brown bread, hints of caramel. The floavour follows with similar characteristics: sweet and lightly jammy berries, sugary brown bread, minimal Hop expression. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, with more brown bread, raisins, berries. Easy stuff. Very basic, but enjoyable.

Bottle at home, bought at Ikea Haarlem. Not bad at all. I suppose when this beer was not from Ikea (and it wasn't on the label) the ratings would be much higher. Deep red, brown color, beige thin head. Taste okay for the abv. Nice.

Dalej jestem zdania, że IKEA powinna się na meblach skupić ;) Kolor właściwie czarny, niewielka, dziurawa piana. Aromat niewyraźny, pusty. W smaku słodkie, lekko karmelowe. Pijalne, ale raczej bez polotu...
