Low on CO2, it has got a big head that vanish quickly. Body is light rusty coloured. The aroma is caramel, nuts, resin with a good blend of citrus and grape. The english hops are very well balanced with the american hops. And the malty backbone of caramel malt fits right in. Really good for beeing a swedish easterbeer.

A gift from visitors to the store. Thanks! Sweet malty aromas. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Caramel, cereal, and nutty flavors with a nice hop balance. Overall an excellent English Strong Ale.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a clear, medium, brilliant amber, with a big white head. Very malty nose, lots of caramel, hops, slightly buttery. Dry, medium bodied, medium to high bitterness, creamy. Malty taste, lots of caramel, the hops are there but slightly subdued, fudge, diacetyl, butterscotch, grapefruit, spruce. Long, balanced finish. (2011-04-29)

Bottle from Systembolaget
Clear reddish brown colour, totally vanishing white head. Piney hoppy aroma. Very malty taste for a Oppigårds ale, also hops and ash. A bit of a dissapointment. I prefer the typical fresher tasting Oppigårds’.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2011
Pours with a beautiful amber colour. Aroma of citrus and flowers, lovely. A little bitter taste, but a beer I wouldn´t mind drinking again.

Tasted 2011-04-23. Pours clear, amber with beige head. Aroma of metal and hops. Weak tasting. Slightly bitter. Soft carbonation. It’s not one I’ll return to.

Kavu (2066) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 22, 2011
Pours darkish brown with a medium off-white head. Aroma is floral with some fruits and malts. Flavor is malts, fruits and well balanced hops in the finish. A bit lighter than expected, but very nice nevertheless.

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - APR 15, 2011
Amber with a beige head. Floral and malty nose. The aroma goes along the same line with some aditional grass and fruity notes. A good smooth alcohol warmth and a very crisp and nice bitterness in the end.

LoFi (1550) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2011
Bottle. Copper with a tan head leaving some lacing. Aroma: malt, nuts, toffee, pineapple, freshly baked bread. Taste: tropical hops, pineapple, nuts, toffee, fruit, slightly metallic, medium bitter. Medium-bodied with noticeable carbonation. No sensation, but will work well with the Easter dinner.
