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.

brokensail (12519) - 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 (556) - 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.

Benzai (9802) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2012
Draught @ The Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Clear dark copper to red color, small off-white head. Smell is weird: malts, some rotten fruits, leaves, dirt. Taste malts, some bitter, leaves and some weird not fresh fruityness. Low body, low to medium carbonation.

I do like a vienna. Well, when I say that what I mean is that I like Brooklyn Lager.

Bottle pour. Amber. Fingernail thin fizzy sandy head. Biscuit, hay, straw in the aroma. Nuts, caramel, honey in the taste. Very light hops in the finish. Highly carbonated, very soft mouthfeel. Good for the style.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a dark amber with a small biege head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and nuts. Taste is caramel malt, yeast, and brown sugar. Just a hint of hops. Smooth and very drinkable.

Have you ever imagined being a horse? Drink this beer and all your fantasies will come true. Massively over powering flavour of hay, followed by a dry grassy after taste that lasts forever. Highly recommended against.

nazzty (921) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2012
Tastes like you are in southern Germany at a festival and enjoy the local brew. Plenty of hops without ruining the finish. Slight sweetness and no acidity at all, a complete surprise from Nils Oscar.
