3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Lots of summer ales now from Oppigårds. They want to benefit from every Swede’s soft spot of course, the brief summer. Nothing wrong with that. At least not when they do it this well.
Low head. Fresh smell of new cut grass and aluminium foil. Malty flavor with fruit and bitter herbs. Easy drinking and refreshing, still manages to leave a pleasant lingering aftertaste. Not bad

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. OK APA. Not as crisp as the Oppigårds stuff use to be... some quite disturbing metallic and vegtable notes. Maybe a bit thin? Otherwise drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden with a small sticky off-white head. Piney and sharp aroma with notes of pear, peach and some fruity esters on top of a caramell base. Flavor is initially sweeter than the aroma would lead one to believe but ends on a seriously dry note with a pleasant mouth watering sweetness lingering together with a fairly solid bitterness. Nice but perhaps a bit undefined.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden with low head
Aromas are citrusy, a bit bready malty
Low to medium bodied. More maltyness than hoppyness in taste.
Good summer pale ale but more hoppyness and less maltyness would make it better.
