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.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2007
A bit skunked and slightly oxidized. The head struggled to have any life to it. Light toffee notes with a mild, and a bit off, hop profile. Would’ve liked to have seen a deeper malt backbone to this one. Not impressed, but would be curious as to what a fresh bottle was intended to taste like.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - SEP 5, 2006
(Bottle BB 10/2006) Fruity, hoppy, slightly roasted and slightly caramel aroma. Red brown colour, bright but some very small particles, slightly sparkling and average size, white, more or less fully diminishing head with fair lacing. Caramel, roasted malty, slightly bitter and fruity (citrus) flavour. Softly carbonated and medium-bodied palate. Good, well balanced beer! 21/08/06

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is clear, deep copper red with brown tones. The medium-sized beige foam disappears into a very thin layer. The smell is somewhat sour with lots of malt. There are some notes of brown sugar and dough. The carbon dioxide is mild with small bubbles. The burned, generous is taste is bitter with a little touch of metal. There are notes of almonds, and caramel malt. The aftertaste is dry, bitter and finishes with a slowly descending taste of dark bread. This is a nice interpretation of the Märtzen concept. As usual, it is a really good beer from the small Nils Oscar’s brewery

Plimmer (252) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2008
Bottle 50cl. Amber/Orange/brown body with a small dense head. Caramel and malt in the nose. Rather sweet body with malt and hops as the dominating parts and a nice bitter finish. Nice beer!

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma hints of coffee and the roasted malts in the brew hints with their presence. Not much hops in the aroma though. Taste carries notes of coffee and a slight sweetness, it rounds off with a medium hoppiness. This is a nicely balanced brew that goes excellent with food.

Steely (241) - , SWEDEN - OCT 11, 2008
Pours a golden amber color with an off-white head. Sweet and light aroma of caramel malt and grassy hops. Refreshing sweet malty flavor of caramel and bread with a hint of fruit. Very well balanced with a medium hop-bitterness. A pleasant beer inspired from Märzen and Festbier.

Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2008

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2008
Slightly hazy bronzy orange with small but lacy whitish head. Aroma is a bit toffy, caramel malty with some grassy hoppyness. Sweet, much malty and slightly roasty, bready flavor with OK hoppy finish. Medium-bodied and oily palate. A pleasant refreshing brew but no specialty.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2008
11.2oz bottle. Pours a coppery dark amber with a firm off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, with scents of syrupy hops, caramel, roasted malt, and floral notes. Taste is light and crisp, with a flavor of caramel, dark fruit, and syrupy hops giving way to a dry finish of roasted malt. Light but full-flavored -- delicious brew.
