Flaske fra Systembolaget delt med DjOeye, 50cl 5,3% Smakt Sept-15 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.
espenra (1016) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2015
50cl bottle from Systembolaget. Batch A. Best before 2015-09-30. Golden amber colour with a minimal white foamy head. Malty aroma with notes of grain, grass and bread. Some floral spicy notes with hints of piney hops. Flavour is lightly bitter. Malty body with notes of toffee and caramel in the start. Bread. Short aftertaste. adamnase (994) - Kronoby, FINLAND - APR 18, 2017
500 ml bottle from Alko. Pours amber with a mediumsized white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, earthy and grasy hops. Taste reflects the aroma, but even sweeter than the aroma. Medium bodied. Medium bitterness. Medium carbonation. Marstonlad (976) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 14, 2017
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours fairly clear bronze with a little white head that disappears completely. The aroma features sweet maltiness and dried fruitiness – caramel, fudge, raisin. Taste is medium sweet, malt-driven and fairly fruity. Caramel and fudge appear initially, later dried fruitiness and berries take over. Light hoppy bitterness counters sweetness in the finish. The palate is medium-bodied, smooth and low in carbonation. Flavours fit perfectly into Easter; nice, multi-purpose beer for other times as well. MikeKeller (956) - Kemi, FINLAND - APR 29, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget
Clear reddish brown colour, totally vanishing white head. Piney hoppy aroma. Very malty taste for a Oppigårds ale, also hops and ash. A bit of a dissapointment. I prefer the typical fresher tasting Oppigårds’.
