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.

drowland (5989) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2012
1/21/12. On tap. Clear amber/red pour with a nice khaki head. Sweet caramel aroma with a touch of butterscotch. Nice caramel malt flavor as well with more roastiness than the aroma, a touch of metal, and lingering chocolate. Tasty.

NordicV (1128) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2012
Bärnstensfärgad med medelkraftigt smutsvitt skum. Doft av knäck, kavring och en antydan av citrusbeska. Viss maltsötma och en balanserad humlighet. Ett bra alternativ till industrilager som middagsdricka.

gyllenbock (4547) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. This is a beer that I drank for the first time more than 10 years ago, at that time it was a personal favorite. The beer looked nice, amber with a huge head. Aroma of mild roasted malt, bread, nuts and some toffee. About the same in the taste. Pleasant bitterness and with a medium body. Not a world class beer but nicely drinkable.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours dark orangish golden, lightly cloudy with a few white bubbles. Notes of sweet caramelized malt, caramel malt, pine, citrusy hops, lightly bitter herbs. Medium bodied, lightly sticky with soft carbonation.

Vignale (2031) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2011
Vackert bärnstensfärgad. Medelhögt skum som bildar lock och lite skumrester på glaset. Doft av kola, sött bröd och blommig citrushumle. Smaken är välbalanserad. Liten sötma och snälla blommiga humletoner från fuggles, cascade och saaz. En snäll markerad beska på slutet knyter ihop smakerna bra. Välavvägt, snyggt och gott. Mycket bra måltidsdryck.
