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.

Dark copper brown, very small white head. Aroma of malt and a bit of caramel. Strong malty taste, and a dry aftertaste. Wellbalanced. It took me a while to "get used" to the strong malt taste, but before my glass was empty I liked it much.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2005
Bottled (BB 03/2005)
Dark copper brown with small off-white head. Excellent aroma of barley/bread with hints of caramel. Medium-bodied, malty with good balance of bread-like barley and soft flowery hops. Also roasted tones found. Balanced märzen (one of the best in this style), only finish is lacking some extra tickles. As in this style often, gives a long dry aftertaste to mouth.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2005
Wonderful dark copper to amber color. Fine white head that slowly vanishes. Strong bitterness crossed with malt and hops. The beer has an earth-like feel which I often find and like in Oktoberfests. Thanks Eructoblaster for another good Nils Oscar!

Eructoblaster (2994) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
Bottle - 33cl. Nice dark amber body topped with a diminishing off-white creamy head. Good malty aroma with hoppy and herbal hints. Taste is dominated by hoppy flavors (Fuggle) which are also prominent in the long and delightful finish.

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is clear, deep copper red with brown tones. The medium-sized beige foam disappears into a very thin layer. The smell is somewhat sour with lots of malt. There are some notes of brown sugar and dough. The carbon dioxide is mild with small bubbles. The burned, generous is taste is bitter with a little touch of metal. There are notes of almonds, and caramel malt. The aftertaste is dry, bitter and finishes with a slowly descending taste of dark bread. This is a nice interpretation of the Märtzen concept. As usual, it is a really good beer from the small Nils Oscar’s brewery

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Nice fruity hops nose, grapefruit, cat pee. Malty balance. Red amber clear with ligh lacig head. Light-medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with nice malt, tangy hopy character. Nice rounded bitterness, with sweetness at the back of the throat. Finish is dry, clean, bitter. Good malt note before a medium bitter after. Nice beer.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUN 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2004 (on bottle)I gotta say this for all the Nils Oscars; the labels are very beautifull.A bigbubbled head and a deep ambertone. Hoppr caramel nose, with some small notes of dried dates. Allmost n IPA-sent. Round body, not much difference from the aroma. A very good balanced beer.
