Review from notes. Tasted from bottle at Lush West Town. Pours pale golden with a thin bubbly head. Nose is primarily caramel malt and bread with a hint of berries and hops. Once again, caramel and bread flavors up front with hops bitterness and berry fruits kicking in on the back. The flavors seem a little out of balance. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long fruity and bitter finish.

Just arrived today, and I figured it was worth a try. This beer pours a hazy orange hue with a small white head that disappears quickly to a thin surface film. Looks more like a kellerbier than a pilsener. The smell consists of cereal grains and some toffee, along with medicinal hop character. Taste is much like the smell, although the medicinal character isn't as present as it is on the nose. Caramel, biscuit, and floral hops make up the flavor profile. Medium in body with a soft mouthfeel. For some reason, Scandinavian brews always seem to have a medicinal, astringent character when it comes to hoppier styles. Drinkable by all means, but different. A solid effort, but there are others in the same style that I would pick before this one. Decent, however.

$9 for an almost big boy glass at Deep Ellum, Alston MA

Deep gold with a frothy white head. Good retention and lace, especially for a lager.

Aroma is good but not as strong as I'd like. Swampy, musky hops predominantly. I can never smell beers well in Deep Elllum which is odd because it's so dark I can't see and the music is so loud I can't hear - you'd think my sense of smell would be heightened. It's not.

Taste is more along the lines of what I'd expect from a hoppy lager: swampy, wet leaf and stem hops from the Saaz and mint which I'm guessing comes from some Northern Brewer. Ample sweet malt body grounds the hops. More pillowy than most German style lagers which I find to be steely.

Not just death metal and finesse hockey any more, the Swedes are gettin' pretty good at brewing.

Tap at Armsby Abbey,

Huge fluffy head 2 fingers, fades slowly with sticky lacing, clear lighter golden yellow color.

Nose interesting very light and bright spice like aromas, light Belgian malts, light grainy malts, light mild grassy hops.

Taste has Belgian golden malts, light Belgian fruity yeast, nice grainy malts, touch sweet, nice fruity hops, grassy, semi bitter. Dry finish with light grassy and touch spicy hops, malts lingering.

Mouth is med to slightly lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall good, nice malts and hop characters, nice dry finish, good Belgian qualities, hops not overpowering.

Poured in to a traditional English beer mug, Oppigards Well Hopped Lager has a hazy golden straw color, with a finger of white heading. A big hoppy nose greets you right away, followed by fresh grains. As expected, hops take center stage here, though are not abrasive at all. They say that this is a farmhouse beer, and I do get a certain something rustic about this beer. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. I could drink this damn beer all day long. Overall this more than satisfied my Lager craving today. I would love to put this one up against Prima Pils from Victory to see which is hoppier. While it may be a bit on the pricey side, this is a stellar beer.

Picked up on a whim from KJ Baarons to complete a "mix a six" not a bad selection.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a wonderful crystal clear golden hue with a nice white one finger head atop that faded to leave light side lacing and thin wisps.

S - Very light hop aromas along with light sweet malts. There is a very nice honey note towards the end.

T - The honey really makes an appearance here. Starts off with malty sweetness followed by light floral hops all the while good honey flavours are present.

M - Pretty good mouthfeel with just the right carbonation to make this seem crisp. By the end though it loses most of it and seems thin. Good slight bitter finish though.

O - Overall a pretty good german pilsner. Really enjoying the light floral notes along with honey.

This was listed as Oppigard's Well-Hopped Lager(Swe)on the blackboard at Armsby Abbey. This is listed as an alias here on BA...

Very good beer.

Served in a tulip glass the beer was a hazy dull gold color. Less than a finger of head that fades fairly quickly but does leave a high amount of lacing.

Very pleasant aroma that is assertively hoppy with grassy notes. Light citrus perhaps a bit of lemon rind.

Really nice flavor and pretty interesting. Pilsner malts, slightly bready a touch of grass and a fairly assertive citrus hop flavor for a pilsner. I like it. A slight touch of spice here. White pepper I'd say and a moment of yeast.

Prickly carbonation, refreshing and a fairly fresh tasting beer. Especially for an import.

I really enjoyed this and would look for it again. Nice.

The beer is clear golden, has a white head leaving lots of lacing.

Malty smells of sweet bread, sour lemons and grape-fruit.

The taste is upfront sweet biscuits, then lemons followed by a good grassy bitterness.

Medium carbonation, soft and sooth body but with a dry finish.

Well-balanced, and well done!

Rocky white head with lots of chunky lace. Very cloudy. Dusty blond color.

The smell reminds me of my homebrewing days when I would use an older hop pellet. It's not bad, but it doesn't smell "fresh". My first thought was skunking but I don't think that is the case here. I also smell a grainy, corn-like smell here. Again, it's not "bad" but it isn't drawing me in either.

The taste is an improvement: Nice lighter malt flavor quickly overwhelmed by a strong bittering hop. Strong biting bitterness in the swallow. Yet, it doesn't last long in the aftertaste--very odd. The body is as expected for the style. The description "well-hopped lager" is apt.
