Bottle, 5.3%. Weak hop and yeast aroma. Hazy chestnut colour. Small tan ead. The flavour is light, but OK. Citric hops with a little yeast.

mjs (6022) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 9, 2009
UPDATED: APR 3, 2015 (Re-rate, keg at Ølhus København, Helsinki, 20150403) The beer was deep golden instead brown. Aroma and flavour both hinted of Belgian yeast. Overall the brew was very sweet.

(Bottle) Dark brown and clear. Small almos white head. Hops and malts in aroma. Quite full bodied and bit dry palate with medium carbonation. Malts, grass, pine, toffee, light roastedness, saltiness and bitterness in taste. Malts and bitterness in aftertaste. Old rating: 7-4-8-3-14

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
Aroma: lovely, fresh hops. Good, sweetish malt to back the hops up. Sourish, yeast, spices (cinnamon, seville orange, nutmeg), cocoa, just lovely.
Flavour: ah, delicious, sweet, malty, cookiedough, reasonable bitterness lingering with liquorice throughout the aftertaste. Slight notes of nutmeg and orange. Coffee in the after-aftertaste aswell as sap and pine.
Appearance: orange brown with beige-tan head
Palate: fluffy, a bit slimy, not particularly heavy, refreshing

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)

Croff (164) - Ostra Sonnarslov, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2010
This is the 2010 version. Pours a cloudy brownish amber. Small frothy head that fades to nothing fast. Mild aroma of sweet malty citrus fruit. Higher carbonation. Malty sweet flavor with hops, citrus, bit of caramel. Medium body. Somewhat crisp. Hop bitter citrus finish. It is a good brew, but not one of Oppigards better efforts.

thewolf (11838) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 4, 2010
Bottle. [thanks, bigbro]
Pours brownish red with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet caramel, light cardboard, good hops. Some piney notes. Medium carbonation, fine dryish mouthfeel. Flavour is quite hoppy, balanced well on a chewy caramel malts background. Piney, some slight fruitiness. Elegant, hoppy and well-balanced beer.

kryon (2283) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2012
pours amber with medium sized thick head aromas are somewhat present and I can sense some citrusy fruits, caramel malts, bread palate is small bodied, some bitterness in the end, overall a quite easy drinkable and quite enjoyable beer. will work nice over easter dinner but its a bit too lame for my taste

NordicV (1749) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2012
Mörkt bärnstensfärgad öl med smutsvitt normalt skum. En fruktig doft med inslag av karamell. Lätt humlebeska. Mer beska i smaken. Citrus och lite tallbarr. Balanseras på ett bra sätt av en honungssötma. Bästa svenska påskölet jag smakat i år.
