tkrjukoff (4058) - SWEDEN - APR 4, 2011
Pours clear deep dark redish amber with a very small shortlived tanned head. Aroma is hoppy, citric, very fruity, malty, bready and caramel. Fruity mouthfeel. Hoppy tart, fruity, a bit sweet and apples flavor. Medium tart palate. Finishes with a longlived fruity and very tart aftertaste.

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - APR 2, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a dark amber, slightly red colour with a high white foam. Aroma hints of grass and hay, some caramel sweetness as well. Taste is pleasant, a crisp bitter finish preceeded by a medium bodied mouthfeel. This beer is nothing special though, nothing I would buy again.

SirLimpsalot (2159) - SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2010
Den enda svenska påskölen anno 2010 som är värd att skriva om. Oppigårds Easter Ale som vi tyckte var den enda som höll någon form av karaktär med fin fruktighet och trevlig balans.

Brandman (2077) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2010
Dark brown body, white head. Aroma of flowery and grapefruity hops. Really overwhelming. Flavour has lots of hops and little malt. Maybe too little.

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2010
Orange with thin beige head. Fruity aroma with notes of pineapple, some malt and caster sugar. A bit roasted. Sweet an malty flavour with growing bitterness.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2010
Unclear orange-brown with a small, cream-white head. Some fruity hops, a mild spiciness and sweetish caramel malts. Well-balanced but not very bold. Good drinkability.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 4, 2010
Bottle. [thanks, bigbro]
Pours brownish red with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet caramel, light cardboard, good hops. Some piney notes. Medium carbonation, fine dryish mouthfeel. Flavour is quite hoppy, balanced well on a chewy caramel malts background. Piney, some slight fruitiness. Elegant, hoppy and well-balanced beer.

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2010
This is the 2010 version. Pours a cloudy brownish amber. Small frothy head that fades to nothing fast. Mild aroma of sweet malty citrus fruit. Higher carbonation. Malty sweet flavor with hops, citrus, bit of caramel. Medium body. Somewhat crisp. Hop bitter citrus finish. It is a good brew, but not one of Oppigards better efforts.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2009
Serving date: 2009-03-25. Dark amber with brown hues. Somewhat cloudy. Slightly beige and uneven but thick head. Small lacings. An interesting but not that powerful smell. Sweet malts, caramel, some brown sugar. Pleasant fruity hops (orange, peach). The taste is of toffee, nuts, oatmeal cookies, some herbs, orange peel, dried apricots and a general fruitiness that’s quite pleasant. Nice balance between the different flavors, though sweetness is slightly dominating. The finish has a gentle herbal bitterness to it, some grass, mild spices and a faint note of dry earth just at the end. Medium body, quite high levels of carbonation. Still feels rather creamy, though. It seems like there’s a well executed craftsmanship behind this beer. However, it’s really not that bold. A good and pleasant beer, but nothing extravagant. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
Aroma: lovely, fresh hops. Good, sweetish malt to back the hops up. Sourish, yeast, spices (cinnamon, seville orange, nutmeg), cocoa, just lovely.
Flavour: ah, delicious, sweet, malty, cookiedough, reasonable bitterness lingering with liquorice throughout the aftertaste. Slight notes of nutmeg and orange. Coffee in the after-aftertaste aswell as sap and pine.
Appearance: orange brown with beige-tan head
Palate: fluffy, a bit slimy, not particularly heavy, refreshing
