I bought beer in Ikea. Just because it was there. I don't know if Ireland's Ikea sells beer, but Geneva's does, though unfortunately not specifically shop-branded: they're missing a trick there.
Anyway, Stockholm is from the Krönleins brewery in Halmstad (the other side of the country from Stockholm) and is a 5.3% ABV pale lager. All of that strength is present in the flavour, it being very sweet and heavy. There's a bit of a bum note on the end where I found an unfortunate metallic tang.
I didn't dwell on it long. If you're after something to chug down to take the edge off some difficult furniture assembly then I guess this is ideal. I won't be running back to the big blue shop for a refill, however.
Westmalle Dubbel - *Origin: Belgium | Date: 2008 | ABV: 7% | On The Beer Nut: October 2007* It's a longtime favourite today. Westmalle Dubbel goes back to the very beginnings...
