larsniclas (7217) - Billdal, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2006

brunnsbe (601) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2006
Ruby red, with a nice roasted aroma. Maybe some smokiness. The hops are in a good balance giving a bitterness and a taste that is great for a beer like this.

JorisPPattyn (10072) - BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2007
Chestnut to Coca-Cola colour; good yellowish head. Very nice, fresh hops nose, mixed with a very obvious and remarkable lemonbalm aroma. Very hoppy taste, a bit of cigar ashes, melanoidins; wood & tannines retronsal. Smoke coming up after a while, both in nose and taste. Quite well-bodied, even some alcohol for its meagre 5.3%. A very good, very original Swedish ale, well worth searching. Thanks to IKEA traveler Stefaan

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.

aphalo (94) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 12, 2009
Bottle 500ml, 2009. Brown and clear, small beige head. Aroma has hops, citrus, pineapple. Taste is IPA-like, bitter hops, dry and salty finish. Quite carbonated.

rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 20, 2009
500 ml bottle. Finland (HHOK). Copper colour with foamy off-white head. Sweetish hoppy and malty aroma. Flavour is first sweetish with some dried fruits. Flavour ends with dry bitterness.

Brandman (2962) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2010
Dark brown body, white head. Aroma of flowery and grapefruity hops. Really overwhelming. Flavour has lots of hops and little malt. Maybe too little.

3.7
Carlsson (9) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2011 does not count
Pours red amber with a small head. Aroma is grapefruits/citrus, bread and a little roasty. Lots of hops, fruits. Has a nice bitter aftertaste. One of the 2011 bottles from Systembolaget.

Vignale (4011) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2011
Det mesta av Oppigårds ales är olika tolkningar av IPor. Det här är en maltigare variant, väldigt lik deras julöl. Och det är en favorit varje år. I år (2011) dock något underlägsen Mikkellers påsköl. Som vanligt välbalanserad, men är humlen inte lite trött. Utgångsdatum i juli skvallrar kanske om att den inte är helt färsk. Hur som helst mycket god.
