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.

Aroma feels like vienna with roasted malt but it also has some vegetables. Flavour is roasted and rather dry with malt and nuts. Not a typical vienna after all, too roasted and dry for the style.

Nice dark golden/amber color, with an ok head. Has a weak aroma from vegetables. Flavour is floral and from perfume, has a peppery and maybe to strong finsh.

Rune (8587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2006
Dark amber coloured with great clarity and a low off-white head. Aromatic hops and a rounded hoppy taste with some roasted barley giving the beer a smoked character. Short, dry ending. Medium palate. Very drinkable (330ml bottle from Systembolaget,02.12.2006).

Coppery color, mild nose. Roasted, surprisingly bitter and dry. Caramel and syrup, altho roastiness and bitterness are the main characters here. No aftertaste. Quite good.

(330ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours a light translucent brown, good lacing. Nose is great, caramel, and sweet. Taste doesn’t follow the nose in fact it has almost no sweetness at all, but bready and toasted grains. Carbonation is the best thing here, but again no sweetness lingering on the palette.

Hazy brown with a white head. Aroma is caramel and DMS. It tastes as it smells with a mildly sour, grainy finish. $2/11.2oz

THOUGHTS: Might have been slightly skunked. Looked like a penny and tasted a little like one, too. Fairly well-balanced. Nice beer that may be incredible before it travels overseas to sit under fluorescent lights on a shelf for God-only-knows how long. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a copper that looked like a clean penny in the light and a dirty penny out of direct light. It had an average to large, off-white head that mostly diminished. When pouring in the bottom of the bottle there was small to medium particles in the body of a thick density. The aroma had moderate to heavy caramel; light to moderate grassy hops; toffee; brown sugar, and slight skunk. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was light to somewhat sweet and moderately bitter. There was a lot of caramel malt and then some metallic and grassy hops along with a little lemon and tea toward the finish. The medium body was fairly syrupy and then a little dry with fairly soft, yet slightly fizzy carbonation and a metallic and slightly chalky finish.

Pours copper color with small head. Aroma of mild malts, nuts and some rye. Flavor of malts, rye, nutty notes and some fruity notes. Surprisingly good considering my low expectations.

Yeah, definately wasn’t worth the $5 with the $2 off because it’s Tuesday at the Brasserie. A marzen i can identify with, but just sub par overall in all areas. Poured a clear orange with a small white head. Aroma is noticeably malty, with biscuit and and hop on the nose as well. Taset is sort of tart midpalate. Grassy, slightly dry with hops firm hops in the finish.
