SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2006
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.

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.

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.

Amber color, decent tan head. Nice hoppy aroma, American hops? Malty, slightly roasted. Hops in the finish and aftertaste. Extremely well-balanced beer, tasty too.

stouby (3866) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle, at home. Light orange with a beige head, mostly diminishing, no lacings. Aroma moderate malty (caramel) and hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium body, oily, soft carbonated.

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.

Second rating.
(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.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2006
Bottle. Not much head. Amber colored. Caramel and malty taste. Also a bit of cinnamon taste in there. The palate a little to thin for my taste. But all in all a nice beer.

pivo (2612) - GERMANY - DEC 23, 2005
Fresh cracked grains and honey in the nose, amber color, lathery head. Sweet caramelly malt, light cinnamon spice end that lingers. Medium body. Good but not thrilling.

YogiBeera (2527) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Thanks Secret Santa Jonas - You are a gem! ight brown color with a fast diminishing super small head. No carbonation. Sweet toffee, caramel and honey nose. Cinnamon and kardamon traces - malt and toffee, all in all light and also thin bodied.

jonas (5984) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2005
Pretty orange amber, low tanned head. Delicate chewy malt and grassy hop aroma. Fine fruity baseflavor with a lovely subtle pine and grass counterpoint, slightly thin and metallic center though - body is comparably light. Grassy and light roasted aftertaste.
