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.

Amber with a nice lasting off-white head. Grain, caramel and cane sugar in the nose. Very deep malty, bready, toffee flavour quite sweet, with a decent hops balance.

Benzai (12333) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2012
Draught @ The Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Clear dark copper to red color, small off-white head. Smell is weird: malts, some rotten fruits, leaves, dirt. Taste malts, some bitter, leaves and some weird not fresh fruityness. Low body, low to medium carbonation.

thewolf (11875) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2007
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...

Pinball (11808) - 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.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2010 courtesy of Antonio Ruiz - clear and dark amber colour with a little persistent foam; malty and fairly earthy aroma with fair hoppy notes; medium-bodied and fruity with a solid but subtle carbonation, some late bitterness before a long dry hoppy and malty finish - very good

Nice lager, a little smoke and edge from (toasted) rye, nice smooth drinking, even creamish. Good white head on a shade of yellow. Neutral aroma. Satisfying though drying aftertaste.Good drinkability.Good balance as sweetness in there and moderate hops.
