austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
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.

Bottle, 50cl - Clear amber beer with a large disappearing white off white head. Aroma is malty with notes of dried dates, grassy hops and caramel. Flavor is malty with notes of dried fruit, grassy hops, citrus and caramel. Refreshing and enjoyable.

Peter_L (1023) - SWEDEN - APR 1, 2013
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.

GandGKevin (932) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2011
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.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle
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 :-)

MikeKeller (906) - Kemi, FINLAND - APR 29, 2011
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’.

mikkopen (903) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2009
500 ml bottle. Dark reddish orange colour, thin white head. Sweet, fruity aroma with some caramel malts, nuts and hops. The flavour is malty, nutty, slightly roasted, with a nice finish of citrus and hops. Very nice.

On tap at Nya Tröls. Primarily caramelly with a hint of hoppiness, not one of their best.
