COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Det är nu sju år sedan vi började höja temperaturen i vörtpannan för första gången. Under dessa år har vi lärt oss av misstag och av vetgirig envishet. I denna jubileumsöl testar vi amarillohumlen en gång till. Första gången var för ett år sedan då vi hade ett tillfälligt sommaröl på fat som hette Summer Twist. Nu är det bara amarillo humle som kontinuerligt humlats under senare delen av koket. Vi har även torrhumlat med amarillo. Doft och smak är mer bärigt fruktig än citrusfruktig som blir resultatet med centennial och cascade humling. Amarillo kommer oxå från USA men som vi upplever det skiljer sig markant från de humlesorter vi normalt har arbetat med hittills. Ölets alkohol (5,9%) och restsötma bär tydligt fram humlesmakerna. Färgen är kopparfärgad och maltgivan innehåller även cirak 15 procent vetemalt vilket framkallar en tydlig och utdragen beska. Beskan är 50 IBU vilket är ganska mycket men karktäristiskt för öltypen som vi kallar amerikansk pale ale men i gränslandet till en amerikansk india pale ale. Detta öl kommer ut 1 februari 2010 på Systembolaget under namnet Oppigårds Amarillo Spring!

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 16, 2012
In short: A textbook example of a caramelized fruity resinous IPA. Good beer
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed fresh a few days after purchase from a Swedish Systembolaget
The look: Clear deep golden body topped by a medium beige head
In long: The medium intensity hoppy nose is fruity hops (mangos, grapefruits, lemon zest, apricots) with hops resin. Taste has a typical but always pleasant toasted caramelized malts, very clean body, not too much caramel, fresh baguette bready sensation. And of course a generous amount of fresh fruity hops (mangos, grapefruits, lemon zest, apricots) with medium resinous character and also some green pine-needles. Bitterness level is pretty high and it is a bit sticky/resinous, tasty but not super-refreshing. This is once again a Swedish textbook example of the style, and that’s how I’ll remember my pub crawling and bottle shopping in Sweden, lots of expertly brewed quality clean beers, textbook examples that do not “try anything”. Very good beer even though I’ve probably had 50 very similar ones before. Another good beer from Oppigårds, one of the most popular micro in Swedish, a country where 4 out of 5 people make up of vast majority of the population.

So. Irgendwann kommt der Moment im Leben eines Biertrinkers, dass er Respekt davor hat, eine Flasche Bier aufzumachen. Der Ruf eilt dem Amarillo voraus. Alle anderen bisher verzehrten Produkte der Brauerei haben bombig geschmeckt. Ich habe nur nie die Eier gehabt, 10 Öffner zu geben, in weiser Voraussicht, es gäbe noch etwas besseres. Genug gequatscht, ich bin gespannt wie ein Regenschirm. Die Oppigards Flaschendesigns bestechen durch Einfachheit und Corporate Design. Hier braucht es einfach keiner großartig verzierten Flaschen und keiner Premium-Selbstbetitelung. Das Bier ist dunkelgolden, perlt sehr wenig und bildet keinen Schaum - typisch Aleig. Der Rüssel vernimmt - wie sollte es anders sein - Amarillo Hopfen. Wunder blumig und würzig im Duft. Blumenwiese schreibt Hauth, das passt schon ganz gut. Der Geruch ist wirklich sagenhaft. Der Trunk beginnt mit einer geringen Rezenz an der Zunge. Danach Explodiert eine riesige Hopfenbombe und bringt eine geballte Ladung Würze mit sich. Das ganze wird von frischen Zitronentönen umschweift und bleibt bis in den Nachtrunk stark würzig, hopfig und fruchtig. Anflüge von Zitrone, Orange, Mango und Grapefruit sind zu verspüren. Der Abtrunk ist bitterherb - allerdings nicht aufdringlich - eher würzig und kraftvoll. Es wird nicht langweilig beim trinken. Sahniger Fluss, Erfrischung pur trotz 5,9%. Ich kann nur sagen, Hut ab. Ich vergebe die ersten 10 Öffner. Noch einen Dank an Erika von Oppigards für die Lieferung des Sortiments nach Vimmerby Systembolaget.

Eripe323 (63) - SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget, best before september 2016. Pours golden orange with low white head. Fruity aroma, with some bread. Very little aroma. Taste is caramell malts, some grapefrukt, caramell malts, bitter fruitiness and more caramell. Too bad, Oppigårds are usually very good, but this vad way too much caramell malts

First beer on tap while at Akkurat. A fairly strong bitterness from this single hop beer. A good solid pale ale- tastes strong enough to be an IPA .

Geiserich (4089) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle: Hazy golden color, white head. Aroma with medium sweet maltyness, herbal hops, citrus Peel. Flavor is candy, malt, hints of caramel, then mainly herbal hops, pine. Too herbal for me.
