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 (11543) - 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.

bhensonb (11510) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Warm caramel malt aroma. Amber color with an ephemeral white head. Medium in body with mild carbonation. The flavor is roasted caramel with spicey hop. Something like an ESB, actually. The finish is well balanced with a decent amount of bitter. It’s a very tasty drink.

Bottle. Bought @ Kvickly, Svendborg. Let us see if Nils Oscar disappoints me again :o) Pours a clear redish brown with an almost non-existent head. Aroma is quite fruity, some strawberries, caramel and a little cardboard feel to it. Mouthfeel is light. Flavour is sweet at first, with the same fruity caramel. The cardboard appears slightly again. Extremely dry at the back - not exactly from hops directly, I feel... can’t really explain it. But yes, it’s a good Vienna, but perhaps not a 98 percentile...

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2008
Bottle from Beertopia. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced excellent to good lacing. Moderate roasted bread aroma. Medium body. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with spicy food.

Pinball (10925) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2008
delicious strong aroma, dark fruits , citrups, hops. clear dark yellow with large lasting off-white head. Flavor : fantastic. ipa style , but somewhat underplayed and thus extremely drinkable. well balanced, i can’t figure what it tastes like, but it is very very good. both appearance and palate is like 3.49 or so, but i’ll add one in overall to compensate. If You like non-extreme IPA style beers with a clear micro/quality taste, this one is fantastic.
