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.

The most beautiful amber/ruby colour. Amazingly full taste for a 5,2% beer. Rather sweet and malty, but with some proper bitterness in the finish. Not dry and bitter enough to be my favourite, but I believe this would be great with rich food and a bitter schnapps!

kramer (5828) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 18, 2006
12 oz bottle, via MrWalker. Clear dark copper pour with a fizzy one finger off-white head. Clean toasted and caramel malt nose with some grassy hop overtones. First thing I noticed- pretty highly hopped for an Octoberfest. Malty base is well balanced by the bright citric and floral hop character. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with fizzy and prickly carbonation. A decent beer, but not the most classic of flavor profiles for an Octoberfest. The hops in this just play too great a role.

larsga (7300) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2006
Small, offwhite head over chestnut brown body. Sweet fruity malty aroma with some roastiness and marzipan; also some hops. Sweetish, hoppy taste with nice roastiness, turning to burnt toast in the aftertaste. Very nice malty sweetness. Overall a very nice beer.

Light caramel nose, clear copper color, low lathery head. Honey malt body, broad dull hop bitter - peppery - that fillls the mouth after the swallow. Medium body. Gritty mouth feel. Good brew, man.

jonas (6787) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2005
Amber, tanned creamy low head. Fruity malt and aromatic hop (pine) nose. Light body, nice fruity/berrylike and aromatic, but also a bit unfortunate cardboardy malt note. Fruity aftertaste.

Secret Santa Joss - you are the bestest Known Santa :-) Very light amber color, no head, soft carbonation. Light malt and honey nose. Herbal floral, malt in the middle, bitter, peppery finish - long lasting aftertaste.

Best before August 2005 33cL bottle consumed on 12/4/05. Sent to me from Bogdi1, thanks Juha!
Pours a deep cherry pie meat red, with some burnt ambers, light beige and auburns swirling about, and a mostly diminishing off-white head that is retained well at cover and provides ample lacing. Plenty of sediment in the bottle and appears to be bottle conditioned.
Aroma is sweet and creamy, with only light fruits (cherries, raisins, light berries) and mainly a sweet caramel and vanilla cream. Fresh toasted barley malts, with even some green, leafy, lightly spicy hops. Full and round, it’s one of those aromas that really fills up the senses. Flavor is unlike any other Oktoberfest I’ve had. Lacking the grainy, drying, bready maltiness that is so dominant to the style, this one has a more reserved, creamy sweetness, toffee and caramel with vanilla and a fair amount of hop flavor (green, leafy, lightly spicy floral notes). Moderate bitterness on end as well complements the creamy sweet malts. Relatively low roast character, a slight dark brown bread sort of aspect is passing, with more earthiness and light spice. Low, natural carbonation and a creamy, fluid texture. The hops are amped up a bit in this example, moreso than traditionally done, but not too much so that it ruins the balance. No alcohol apparency, surprisingly light yeast apparency.

Pours dark copper with a thin diminishing white head. Malty, somewhat roasted nose. Hoppy, earthy, refreshing flavour. Great bitterness.

Inviting color and a slim head. The smell is full of roasted malt and the deep and hoppy aroma contains lots of syrupy biterness and well balanced alcohol. It’s rich in flavour, something to drink slowly and again and again.
