Hopmaestro (1097) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 21, 2016
2016 Edition: Aroma is a solid and malty base with a subtle hop-profile. Fresh citrus notes elevating a caramelly body. Taste is straight up clean and robust malt with a light citrus tone with a tiny pine push in the end. Solid Easter beer.

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.

MikeKeller (933) - 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’.

GandGKevin (933) - 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 :-)

TychoJames (890) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Mörkorange, kopparfärgad klar vätska med beiget skum. Blöt doft med malt och lite fruktsötma. Bitter och maltig smak med lite hö och bröd. Härligt bitter munkänsla

Ingevara (886) - SWEDEN - APR 3, 2008
Brown and fragrant. small head. Rough bitter taste with lots of maltiness and hops. Hints of yeast, figs and prunes. Didn’t go well with the pasta dish I tried it first with, but was excellent on its own. Sparsely carbonated. Puts a golden frame to the moment.
