Ljunkan (530) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours a copper color with a mediumsized white head which fades away to a smaller one leaving some lacing. Aroma is interesting but not that powerful: roasted malts, coffee, cacao, milk chocolate and some pine needle hops. Flavour is really nice with a dominating hop character of pine needles, grapefruit and apricot which is balanced by a some nice malty cacao, coffee and toffee. Finish is nicely bitter. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, quite dry mouthfeel. Overall just another one of those tasty Oppigård brews!

FatPhil (15563) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 23, 2009
500ml bottle (Alko, Helsinki)
Rich red, small head. Lovely fruity and fresh hoppy aroma, sweet caramel too, really jumps out of the glass. Pleasant carbonation, lively in the mouth. Sweet grainy body, but tons of crisp fresh sweet hops, even a little gingery in places. Finish is sticky both in a sugary and a resiny way, and that’s not a problem at all. Very worthy of the title ’English Strong Ale’ - this could give most ESAs a run for their money. Full of flavour, but a really tasty quaff.

Lalli (243) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2009
0,5l bottle. Dark ruby red color. Aroma is malty, with hops and even a touch of smoked ham. Flavor is more dominated by fresh hops, but the malty body supports it well. Very nice brew.

TET (2931) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Copper brown beer with small, velvet, beige head. Aroma is pleasant, exotic fruits, some roasted malts ja pine needles from hops. Flavour is quite strongly bitter, roasted, quite dry, slightly fusty and lot of pine needles. Nice to drink with balanced and low carbonation. Aroma was promised fruitfull and fresh beer but flavour was too compromised and fusty. Not bad beer but I have a feeling that this could has been better.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2009
Bottled. Dark copper, fluffy beige head. Good dark nutty aroma with quite strong herbal hops and toffee, even chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, nice hops (grass & some pine), nuttiness, little wood and cocoa, nicely balanced. Lingering herbal bitterness. Really smooth silky palate, perfect for the style. A great ESB, this one makes my easter alright.

mikkopen (1139) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2009
500 ml bottle. Dark reddish orange colour, thin white head. Sweet, fruity aroma with some caramel malts, nuts and hops. The flavour is malty, nutty, slightly roasted, with a nice finish of citrus and hops. Very nice.

KnutAlbert (6750) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2008
Bottled. Dark brown, rich, malty. A nice piney and hoppy dryness. Dryness dominates in the finish. A well balanced, moreish ale.

MiP (15453) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2008
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.

Todeon (325) - SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle. Really nice aroma of some fruit and fresh hops. Taste is really bitter with lots of hops thrown in there. Really refreshing and well crafted beer.
