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.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2007
Golden with a nice head and a nice hoppy aroma. The flavour is full and smooth with lots of aroma hops, caramel, light sweetness. It’s really nice, and I think it’s more an APA than a märzen.

Bov (9799) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2000
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

FatPhil (9616) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 18, 2008
330ml bottle (Olutkellari, Helsinki)
Sweet malty aroma, some ginger, some wet sheep. Lively palate, not fizzy as such. Quite full flavoured. Strongly hoppy and pretty malty too, quite well balanced, nutty in places. Long malty and nutty finish.

hopscotch (9549) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle... Clear amber lager with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Malty, toasted caramel nose and flavor. Balanced nicely. Rich, hearty malts, but not cloyingly sweet. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Roasty, rather bitter finish. Cheers to marsiblursi for providing the bottle!
