2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl bottle. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Refreshing aroma with a distinct notes of citrus caramel. Flavour is dominated by the hops and a very, and I mean VERY, distinct metallic flavour/mouthfeel. Weird! You can also taste some tart citrus caramel. The finish is dry and quite bitter with loads of metal! Oppigårds know how to make better beer than this.
Oppigård kan göra bättre öl än detta.

33 cl bottle. Pretty clear amber with a fair amount of almost white head. Hoppy aroma, some grain, grass and metal. Nothing special so far, but drinking it is a delight. Sweet taste, hoppy, bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden to amber in color with a moderate, stable off-white head. Light caramel, light fruit, hint of floral hops, yeah this is a golden ale. Some english ale qualities. Dry floor malt, mild hopsack flavors. Very much reminds me of an english canned ale. Not that that is bad, it’s just sort of there. Some malt, some hops, a touch of fruit a little nuances. Simple drinkable ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from Systembolaget in Linköping. Bright dark golden look under a thin ring of bubbles. Fair lacing. Aroma of fresh grass and fruits. Moderate amount of succulent orange hops in flavour. Smooth bitter ending. Not just drinkable, but in fact rather morish (27.01.2008).

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light stone fruit aromas. Amber tinged gold color with a respectable white head. Near medium body with creamy/fizzy carbonation. Definitely noble hop; with some light stone fruit - apricot does seem right. The finish is pretty dry, there are fruit notes, and it is deliciously bitter. As things go on, there seems to be citrus/grapefruit rind in small amount. Seems very underrated.
