Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazel brown colored with a big head that settles to nice firm layer on top of the beer. Tye aroma is plentiful and lovely. Fruit, nuts, tobacco, pines. The taste is smooth, caramell perfectly balanced with piney hops, silky texture. Long piney aftertaste pulls down the rating a tad. Medium mouthfeel. A very very good example of this great beer type. aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2013
Aroma of american hops and a small amount of malt in the background. Taste is hoppy and malty. Great balance! DrWeissbier (31) - - MAR 4, 2013
Great American Style Brown Ale, Lots of hops, caramel, Very drinkable!! omhper (25949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2013
Draught at Flying Scotsman, Stockholm. Clear nut brown, mid sized head. Rich aroma of tropical fruits and hazelnuts. Dry with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Salty with a distint roasty malt component - nuts, coffee and chocolate, well combined with tropical fruit hops. Balanced bitter finish. Nicely drinkable. Really well made brown ale. fiulijn (21511) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2013

Beautiful mahogany color with creamy head. Deep aroma, earthy, of soil, and biscuity malts, so Swedish, but to a new level of elegance here. Dry mouthfeel, yet quite silky; lean flavor of roasted malts; correct bitterness; there is a light fruity touch from the yeast in the end.
Very well brewed, elegant, original, clean, deeply interesting.
Another surprisingly good brew from Oppigårds! Pours a beuatiful light brown color with small creme head. Fresh fruity hops, caramel and roasted malts in armoa. Taste is heavy on the bitter side - lots of american hops and roasted caramel in the background. Actually more of a BIPA than a Brown Ale. A bit unbalanced due to the high bitterness / "low" ABV, would have been outstanding if sweetness was higher and thicker palate. Now it’s just excellent :)
