Aroma is lightly hopy and fruity. The taste is nicely hopy, dry grass, earthy with fruity esters. Balanced off with a biscuity malt flavour.

Koelschtrinker (10509) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
Milder, etwas süßer Hopfengeruch. Frischer, deutlich bitterer Antrunk, der im weiteren Verlauf erheblich stärker wird. Natürlich, wenig hopfig. Zum Ende wird das bisher vollmundige Bier schwächer, im Abgang gar mild bis neutral, nur noch wenig bitter. Sehr rauhes Bier mit markanter Bitterkeit. 11/8/7/9/8/8

MikeKeller (843) - Kemi, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, tasted 2010. A bit hazy golden coloured beer, white head. Pleasant fruity hoppy aroma. Dry bitter taste, the aromatic hoppiness well present. Another refreshing hoppy ale from Oppirgårds.

bvc (1156) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2010
12oz bottle shared by Colin, thanks man. Dark golden with a orange tint to it and a big off white head. Lightly sweet and malty with lots of floral and herb hop aroma. Good creamy mouth feel with tight carbonation. Quite a bit of biscut malt, but works well with the earthy floral hops. Drinks nice.

ricke (476) - Malme, SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2009
Serving date: 2009-03-04. Served in half-pint glass. Golden orange, very pale and clear. Big, white and uneven head that settles after a while. Some lacings. Very reminiscent of a pale lager. Pleasant smell of plenty of soft hop notes (citric aromas), earth, sweet malt. Very refreshing. In the mouth, there’s caramel malt at first. Then plenty of hops: lemon peel, grapefruits, ripe apples, floral notes, resins. Some herbs, and a taste of tonic water. For a while, a bready maltiness and butterscotch take over. The finish is somewhat dry and surprisingly bitter, has some floral hop notes and metallic maltiness. Not a very pleasant finish actually as the bitterness dominates to much. Plenty of carbonation and a surprisingly light body. Again, the beer is close to lager territory. An ok beer, rather refreshing and very easy to drink. The smell is way better than the taste though. Would have liked bolder hop flavors. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

gyllenbock (4563) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2009
Bottle. Color was amber, head was rather large. Aroma was wonderfully hoppy. Hops, grape, malt. Easy to drink. Aftertaste was quite long and contained citrus.
