COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2006
As always with Nils Oscar, this is a good beer. Deep colour. Distinct bitterness but definitely malt dominated. Perhaps a little too sweet for my liking, but I believe that’s a feature of the style, not an imbalance in this beer.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. Pours a darker amber with slight head. Scents of fruit and bread on the nose. Brew is malty, with roasted notes and some raisin overtones. Some bittering and light hopping. It was OK, but nothing special. Bottle courtesy of Marciblursi.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2006
Dark amber colored, little light brown head. Aroma is rich with hops, bitterness, caramel and grass. Medium bodied. Flavor is dry with hops and mild citrus tones, aftertaste lasts with dryness. Clean but not very complex brew.

Bready malty taste. Quite long taste, full body. Quite hoppy and bitter in the taste. Like it.
