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.

TheJestersBeer (2032) - SWEDEN - DEC 21, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a really nice deep copper, with a white head. Malty aroma with lots of caramel, toffee, hops, chocolate, bread, figs, honey. Dry, medium body and bitterness, balanced CO2. Malty, balanced taste, caramel, faint diacetyl, light chocolate, honey, dried fruits. Not overly complex, but very well made, and highly enjoyable. (2012-12-21)

essexcalf (172) - Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe. 330ml. Pours medium-sized, creamy, yellow-green head, thinning out to a decent, thin head that covers the whole surface for a good while, with fine bubbles. Clear, orange-copper body. Mid carbonation. Aroma - Heavy, dark caramel & choc malt. Salty crackerish malt too & quite cerealish. Some savoury, vegetabley smell (not sulphurous). Fruity, lightly estery yeast and spiciness. Lightly spicy & herby hops. Taste - Balanced. Bready, cracker, cereal malt and savoury mineralness. Some dark, slightly sweet, molasses and fruity brown sugar & dark choc. Hops are light and herby, light bitterness. Lightly hoppy, very lightly bitter finish; over quickly, leaving clean palate. Heavyish, mid-full body, warming, smooth. Unusually dark malty tasting for a lager, but somewhat lacking on the hop-front: Hops are dull and too far back in the mix.

Blairgus (2549) - California, USA - NOV 21, 2012
21 nov 2012, bottle. Reddish/brown, hazy with lots of floating sediment. Nose is rich, cease all malt and maybe some milk chocolate and raisins. Med body, feels a bit watery, and mildly fizzy. Kind of disappointing to taste. Nice flavors: cherries, coffee, raisins, cereal malt. Sadly, there's no body or boldness to this. It really has a watery texture and it isn't very bold at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dantheman278 (1358) - SCOTLAND - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Very dark reddish copper brown, thin white bubbly head fades to a tiny ring with light lacing. Warm toasty bready malts, slight redcurrant fruits nose. Sweet but light toasty malts on the front, very rich yet drinkable, lightest roast, good Vienna character, then sadly lacking in the finish. Slightly metallic hops, a bit more oddly herbal than it should be, tad oxidised. There’s definitely a good beer here, but sadly should be a bit fresher.

AshtonMcCobb (2314) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 29, 2012
33cl bottle. Pours a lovely dark amber with a nice layer of lace some of which hangs around. The nose had initially some pine, then this subsided and there was a strawberry and biscuit note. The taste has more biscuity malt with more sweet red fruits, probably redcurrants. There are obvious hop notes at the beginning and end, possibly reminiscent of pine.

I wasn’t real impressed with this. Kind of a ho-hum malt and hop mixture and overall a bit flat.

OK. Uppfriskande. En del karamelle men inte s å mycket mer. "Full body" och viss eftersmak och beska dock.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 Bottle from Gothenburg offie courtesy of Matt. Pours slim-haloed pale ruby. Sticky fig aroma with hints of bay leaf and battered sausage. Decent figgy, lightly buttered, chocolate-dusted malt taste with hins of red berries and mocha. More enjoyable and complex than I was expecting.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 26, 2012
The beer is a dark amber color with an off-white head. The nose is slightly toasty with some caramel and toffee, a bit of bread as well. Very mild hop aroma, just a bit of floral and earthy notes. The flavor has no real character to it. Some bland malt flavors of toast and stale bread. Minimal hop notes and no discernible bitterness. Very bland.

Garlic_of_Doom (394) - SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours dark amber with a 1 finger head that quickly dissolves. Aroma is malty and hoppy, some toffee. Taste is surprisingly hoppy! Toffe/caramel as well as roasted malt and some chocolate as the beer temperates. Medium body and carbonation. After taste is dry and bitter.
