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.

Oppigårds brukar kunna detta med säsongsöl. Årets påskbrygd är därför lite av en besvikelse, väldigt anonym och kort, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ljunkan (530) - NORWAY - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a copper color with a mediumsized white head which fades away to a smaller one leaving some lacing. Aroma is interesting but not that powerful: roasted malts, coffee, cacao, milk chocolate and some pine needle hops. Flavour is really nice with a dominating hop character of pine needles, grapefruit and apricot which is balanced by a some nice malty cacao, coffee and toffee. Finish is nicely bitter. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, quite dry mouthfeel. Overall just another one of those tasty Oppigård brews!

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2009
Touch of toffee on the aroma but mainly somewhat citrusy hops. Mild and balanced in the mouth with touch roasty and caramely malts complimented by the citrusy hops. Pleasant and satisfying.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2008
Bottle. Dark amber with white head. Nice fruit and bitterness. Grass, sweet. A bit metallic. A bit of perfume? Good balance.

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)

Garlic_of_Doom (474) - SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma is malty and earthy, some hops, Taste is honey sweet malty with citrus hops. Well balanced! Dry, bitter, woody after taste. This was better last year and the 2 years before that.

SamTheBarrel (461) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2014
500ml brown bottle with an Easter themed label with ha rooster. Appearance is clear amber with a medium sized frothy beige head, that settled down quickly, leaving a little lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon peels, dried apricots and caramel. Flavours of grapefruit, dried apricots, caramel, honey and a hint of spices. Taste is light-medium sweet and medium-heavy bitter. Palate is medium bodied, oily texture and average carbonation. Oppigårds Easter Ale is too hopped and citrusy to par well with the food in a typical Swedish Easter dinner. Overall a good beer, but I would not have associated it with Easter.
