UPDATED: MAR 8, 2012 Bottle. Dark amber colour with an off white head. Fruit and caramel nose. Very well blended flavour of fruit, caramel, hops. An excellent ale that I am looking forward to every easter!

Det mesta av Oppigårds ales är olika tolkningar av IPor. Det här är en maltigare variant, väldigt lik deras julöl. Och det är en favorit varje år. I år (2011) dock något underlägsen Mikkellers påsköl. Som vanligt välbalanserad, men är humlen inte lite trött. Utgångsdatum i juli skvallrar kanske om att den inte är helt färsk. Hur som helst mycket god.

stunetii (90) - Bergen, NORWAY, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2011
Purchased at systembolaget in Goteborg sometime in the middle of April, 2011. Overall, this is a very robust ale, with good body and lots of flavor that definitely favored the hoppy side. Pours with a deep, dark amber color and a medium-sized off-white head. The lacing is very dense and sticky: the appearance is excellent. The aroma is reminiscent of pine, fruits (plums perhaps), and a hint of caramel. The mouth feel is somewhat creamy. The is taste is relatively complex: a bit herbal and fruity in the start, with a distinct bitterness in the finish that lingers on for a bit too long. A very good ale and one that I would buy again.

Quite good, but there are eleventy billion Easter ales which taste just like this one.

ClubGonzo (4521) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle. Red, coppery body with a medium creamy white head. A beautiful sight. Aroma is peachy hop tones with a pleasant malt balance. Hints of red berries and wild strawberries in particular. Taste is a smooth blend of grassy hops, malts and fruity hints of red berries and honey melon. Not terribly exciting but a very nicely composed beer that I wouldn’t mind having for Easter. Or summer, like now. :-)

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 (2195) - 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’.
