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.

A very dark example of a Marzen/vienna, from a good brewery. Tastes strongly of brown bread crusts, or a Scandinavian-type rye bread. Doesn’t really have the smoothness to counteract the powerful malt, BUT my bottle was 6 months out of date.

Nuffield (3912) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2013
The commercial deScription here captured pretty well the essence of this beer: Octoberfest in its basic malt structure, with breadienss and yeastiness being at the heart. But at the same time there are some significant hops; I wouldn’t say that they’re American, which is good. Makes for an interesting beer. Bottle.

Pleasant aroma, taste and palate, but I’m not thrilled. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

Kaatuu lasiin colanvärisenä ja kirkkaana, runsaalla rusehtavanvalkoisella vaahdolla. Haju on maltainen, viljainen ja lievästi ruohoinen. Maku on runsaan maltainen ja hieman viljainen. Suutuntuma on ohuehko, mutta humalan tuntee kuitenkin. Kokonaisuutena helposti juotava, mutta hieman pliisu olut, joka ei itsessäni suuria tunteita herätä.

Smells not great, tastes more, a little sweet and metallic taste. The aftertaste disappears quickly. I give it a decent rating because it was perfectly okay to drink anyway. Would still recomend to try this beer.

TheJestersBeer (2291) - 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)
