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.

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 (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, 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 (13757) - 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 (571) - 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 (11031) - 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.
