This beer has its orgin in the Bavarian beer type ’festbier’ or ’oktoberfestbier’. Like ’festbier’ and ’vienna style beer’, Nils Oscar Kalasöl is of a somewhat darker type. The Nils Oscar Kalasöl is produced with both münchenermalt, dark caramelmalt, chocolatmalt and some roasted barley. The choice of hops is a mix of four kinds where the most characteristic are brittish fuggles, american cascade and czech saaz.
Kalasöl is a rounded beer with a mildly roasted breadish character. It can be recommended together with heavy foods, like joints of roast meat, spicy stews, broiled meat and fowl.

On tap at Grand. Not a favourite, seems like their compromissing a little too much on the flavour-profile in order to appeal to the mass-market consumer.

Patrickctenchi (5237) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy amber-brown, particulates, minimal off-white head. Spice cake, caramel scent. Slightly watery, caramel/chocolate taste... Herbal hopping.... Good, but a little on the thin side.

Erzengel (6248) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 13, 2013
Schöne, bernsteindunkle Farbe. Der Antrunk ist schön vollmundig malzig. Für ein Festbier, dass sich laut Etikett an einem Märzen bzw. (deutschen) Festbier inspiriert, erstaunlich herb-erfrischend. Keine typisch deutsche Festbier-Süßlichkeit festellbar. Der Nachgeschmack ist erfrischend und schön angenehm herb. Dabei auch leichte Malztöne, die das ganze schön abrunden. Auf der Zunge bleibt lange eine schöne herb-malzige Note zurück.
--> ein sehr schön erfrischend-herb-malziges Bier! Sehr lecker und sehr empfehlenswert!! Test vom 2.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,12,12,12,11 - 11,45

rosenbergh (9164) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2013
330 ml bottle. BB Nov/13. At the Arlanda Airport, Sweden. Slightly cloudy brown colour with a tiny off-white head. Dark hops, mild bitterness, tea, malt and some sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is pleasant. Hops, mild bitterness, dark maltiness, tea notes and mild sugary sweetness. Works fine as a breakfast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MikeKeller (917) - Kemi, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget, Haparanda. Clear dark brown beer with a thick beige head. Sweetish aroma is caramel malts, lactose and some hops. Flavour is quite sweet, chocolate, malts and a bit bitter in the end. Very soft and smooth mouthfeel. Propably the best vienna I’ve had.

Kopparfärgad med litet skum! Doften är ok men smaken är som att dricka söt malt innan man kokat vörten!? Dålig flaska??

rarbring (1959) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2013
Aroma: The smell is sweet, dried fruits, grains and some sour, also fruity, notes.
Appearance: This beer is clear medium brown with ahint of red, an off-white head that leaves good lacing.
Taste: The taste has a brown sugar with dried dates and apples sweetness. Not much sourness, but some bitterness, like banana peel.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a medium body with a dry finish.
Overall: A good solid beer that is a little meal in it self (or maybe more a snack).
Note: Bottle 330 ml. Reviewed 2010-07-08.

StueyD (1543) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2013
A mid, reddish-brown coloured beer with a quickly dissipating head. A complex aroma of wet wood, chocolate, coffee, vegetable and a hint of smoke. Very dry mouthfeel. The taste is dry, and follows on from the aroma, a woody, slightly smoky taste is bolstered by dark chocolate and coffee bitterness, plus a hint of spice and dark fruit, this then accentuates a tangy hop flavour that comes through towards the end.

MrBeerFanatic (905) - Friona, Texas, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Pours a medium amber with a frothy of white head and light carbonation. Aromas of caramel, spruce/fruit hops, toffee, and slight hint of wood. When I drink I get this reminiscent feeling/thought I’m an old westerner with a cowboy hat, white beard, cigar in the other hand and overlooking a desert with the sunset. Flavors of toffee upfront, light caramel, spruce hops and a slight hint of smoke. Light to medium sweet, medium bready and leaves just a like smoke/wood aftertaste.
