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.

33 cl bottle @ home, rated on 05.06.2011
Aroma feels like vienna with roasted malt but it also has some vegetables. Flavour is roasted and rather dry with malt and nuts. Not a typical vienna after all, too roasted and dry for the style.

TheEpeeist (3364) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2011
11.2 oz bottle. Foggy amber, suds and some haze. Nose is nougat, root beer and prune. Not heavy but still substantial; needs more carb. Dusty brown sugar, dates, orange peel, tobacco and soft rye. I like where this was going but seemed a bit stale.

JDBaker11058 (1282) - Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Appearance: coppery/rusty brown, with many specks floaring, creamy off-white head. Aroma: caramel, butterscotch, stone, raisins. Taste: caramel, toasted malts, a bit of brown sugar, some coppery-bloody tones, a little dust, and some very earthy, musty hops. Finish: mellow, with lingering earthy hops and dust. Notes: Palate was smooth and slick. Brew was very drinkable. Was hoping for a bit more rye heat. A little hoppier than most Vienna’s I’ve had.

ClubGonzo (4056) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear bronze body with a small white head. Nose is caramel, basement tones (again with a Swedish micro, particularly Nils Oscar...must be the national yeast! :-D) and hints of nuts and subtle malty notes. Taste is roasty caramel, nuts, hints of basement yeast and dusty hops. Smooth and very easily drinkable and fairly tasty, but not as impressive as one should think by looking at the rating. Guess I’m just not a big enough fan of Vienna, since this is supposed to be top-notch.

Marko (3947) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 4, 2011
Bottle from the Systembolaget in Drottningsgatan. Coppery amber body with a small off white head. Full sweet grainy malty nose. Solid maltiness supports a pleasant aromatic hopiness that comes to the foreground. Light dogfood that doesn’t get in the way, fine bitterness. Quality stuff!

jolo (919) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 20, 2011
Bottle 33cl. A red copper colour with a small orange head. An aroma of malt and caramel. The taste is sweet and light bitter. A medium body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation and a light bitter finish. A well balanced beer

olsvammel (3075) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2011
On tap at Allt om Öl Festivalen in Eskilstuna. It poured a clear copper liquid with a creamy light beige head. Very well balanced and nice beer. Malty with a soft hoppy aroma.

Delicious light hoppy aroma. Nice foam. Lovely clean lager flavor, with a light smoky impression. All perfectly matched. Super and strong beer!

LoFi (1593) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle. From notes. Amber with a tan head. Caramel, grass, some nuts, fruits, slightly roasted. This is usually a nice choice with most kinds of food.
