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.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2007
50 cL bottle. Pours amber, slight hazy with an orange lacing head. Very grainy aroma, slight dusty and dry. Cornish and dry flavour. Has a slight fruit note followed by a dry rye flavour into the finish. Surprising good flavour given the boring aroma.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2003
An amber beer with no head. The aroma is sweet of a good maltblend and notes of brewmash. The flavor is lovely sweet, brewmashy, malty, caramelic and ends on a dry bitterness. A nice beer.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark amber with a nice, dense head. Very filling with a solid amount of malt sugars and some great hops to add both aroma and a rather distinct bitterness. A delicious brew - as most Nils Oscars. 050801

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2005
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.

omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 28, 2002
Reddish brown. Above aevrgare body, complex, almost playful hoppiness, roasty. Bitter finish. As always from this brewery an interesting high quality brew.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2002
Beautiful amber colour. Original aroma of malt and other grains. Interesting flavour, of malt, quite aromatic hop, other grains (unmalted?), also similar to some bitter or Scottish brews. Well hopped palate, with pretty good aromas, but with a less pleasant dry bitterness at the very end.

Bottle. Medium head with medium duration. Color is amber. Aroma is rich with hops and also caramel. Taste is hoppy. Good bittersweet finish.

Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2007
Slight hazy orange with a solid white head. Aroma is sweet of malts (caramel & bread), sugar & honey. Taste is of the same and some spices & a nice dosis of hops (citrus/flowers). Medium body & carbonation. Good lacings. Nice bitter end. A very good Vienna!!!
