Oppigårds Well-Hopped Lager (Bergsmansöl) has a medium, fluffy white head, and a very hazy, orange appearance, which really clouds up, once the caked bottom sediment is swished and poured in. Lacing is minimal. The aroma is rather strong: pungent, semi-sweet and rich barley. Taste is of the same, with noticeable, yet not pronounced, hop bitterness (I'd never guess it is a 36 IBU). Mouthfeel is medium and prickly, and Oppigårds Well-Hopped Lager (Bergsmansöl) finishes a bit rough, rustic, and dirty.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, grass, herbal hop, and cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with cardboard, grain, earth, floral, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that I think is pretty old at this point, but there are still some noticeable hop qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

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.
