Bottle of 330 ml, bought at IKEA, Duiven. It must be relatively new, at least here, since they were not there last year and they're still not listed on their website.
First of all, this is an actual beer, as in the final product, and not a beer kit containing water, malts, hops and instructions on how to make it yourself (get it? because it's from IKEA, and that's what you do with everything else bought from there, haha, hilarious)
Ok, this is a lager, poured into a lager glass it gave me a golden yellow coloured beer, with two fingers of white, soapy head, with very good retention. Lots of activity in the glass that seems that it never stops.
Aroma is quite strong, aromatic hops as with every other lager, with some malts on the background.
Taste is also typical lager one, quite sweet at first, with a long bitter aftertaste. Much better than I expected.
Medium to full body with high carbonation.
Well, I didn't expect it to be that good. It won't blow your mind but it's an honest lager, plus now I have a reason to join my girlfriend on her visits there.

Green 330ml bottle: BBD of 15 Jun 2013: poured into a very tall and thin 'Harboe Beer' vase shaped glass (I don't own any Swedish beer glasses).

The flute showed off the beer nicely: good amber/golden body, bright and clear, on top a rich foaming head of pure white.

Odourless to be honest and almost tasteless too.

The brew is slightly malty and semi-sweet, but it offers nothing for my senses to get excited about. A bog standard, cheap tasting supermarket lager/pilsner: it didn't upset me but it was boring.

Just an average lager and a bit of a disappointment all round: it looked like it might have some spunk, but sadly it didn't.

Watery Lager Bier with very poor nose.
Bright blond colour, white foam not consistent and not persistent.
The taste it's sweet but very poor, a bit yeasty and medium carbonated. Hops are very weak and only at the end you can notice some bitter.

A very poor and commercial beer.

Seeing this beer in IKEA was a surprise. Naturally, I wasn't expecting much, but it's not that bad.
It has the typical lager appearance with golden color and average white head.
The nose easily picks up malt and also some grains.
The taste is light and slightly watery, with slightly sweet start and decently bitter finish.
There's really not much to it, but it's still pretty enjoyable. Even makes the visit to the store worthwhile.

Got it from Greece.

A - Usual lager golden color,a bit darker. Two finger white foam lasting couple of seconds,some bubbles.
S - Surprisingly interesting,almost as some IPA aroma,with weak elder smell.
T/M - So unpleasant! Lots of adjuncts,corn i think. Bitter,but not drinkable,watery. Rubbish aftertaste.

O - Cheap furniture,cheap beer,one of the worst.
