Best Before Feb 06 from ClarkVV. Pours a brown color with a small off white head. Nose is swet caramel, lots of sugar, and some light malt notes. Palate is smooth with some light hints of sugar. Flavor is more of the sugar and caramel notes with lots of sweetness and sweet malt.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2006 Best before Feb 06 from Engelsmann consumed on 6/11/06.
Large, very well retained head is foamy, buttercream colored and laces somewhat. Clear ruby-auburn body is unfiltered and amazingly experimental for a lager.
Flavor is underattenuated and very caramel-malted. Sweet, sticky and decadent, I was expecting a Marzen and got this Swedish/German strong ale. So in summary I’m going to give it a 2.8 default and message omhper for advice on this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. At first lots of cinnamon in aroma. After a while in the glass it ruens more hoppy and caramellish. Flavour is sweet, spiced malts and also some hops in finish. Quite pleasant mix, and also wellbalanced between sweet and sour. Spices dominate the aftertaste, which otherwise is sweet malty and spicy. Well done, as most other Nils Oscars.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2006 First rating.
Bottle around Christmas 2005.
To be honest I didn’t think this one was very special compared to the regular "Kalasöl". Maybe they just put a new label on for Christmas? Sure it’s still a good, perhaps even great, beer, but shouldn’t be called a Christmas beer by my standards.
(33 cl bottle)
Sour and hoppy scent, some stables with horse droppings, citrus. Copper color, tan head. Skunky bitter old papery cardboard taste. Dry and oxidized. A bit hin mouthfeel. Some citrus hoppy taste.
