3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, nice hops (grass & some pine), nuttiness, little wood and cocoa, nicely balanced. Lingering herbal bitterness. Really smooth silky palate, perfect for the style. A great ESB, this one makes my easter alright.

Kopparröd färg med lågt skum. Sötma och knäckebröd i arom samt svagt av honung. Lovar hög sötma. Möts på ett bra sätt av beska i smaken.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, medium head with good lacing. First impresion is loads of flowery hops. That developes into a more sweet maltiness with some tannies and coffee notes.Full bodied with some coffee like bitterness for finish. Unusual Swedish easter beer. Reminds me of an English strong ale from a micro wanting to be American. Somewhat unbalanced though. Needs a bit more sweetness. Smother as a real ale, I would like to hope :-)

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’.
