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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 20, 2009
In short: A caramelized beer with resinous hops with annoying meaty notes.
How: Bottle 330ml. Consumed a few days after receiving it through private importation but it was already close to expiration date
The look: Clear redish-copper body topped by a very small off-white head
In long: Wet bread with old fruits (citrus mainly) and resinous hops. Annoying red-meat sensation. Strangely similar to their Nils Oscar Farm Ale that I had minutes before this one. Like the Farm Ale but less dirty and with a boosted carbonation. Certainly not what I’m used to from a Vienna. The beer has some qualities but the meaty character prevents it from being enjoyable. Drinking it I was thinking to myself “Wow, I’m drinking a rare beer!” and I wasn’t thinking about the availability.

jesperhammer (3619) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 26, 2011
23-APR-2011, bottle @home, brought by Morten, from Systembolaget. Mahogany, low (almost no) beige head. Malty, fruity, and bock-like with bready stuff. Very thin. Very boring.

JDBaker11058 (1614) - Maryland, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Appearance: coppery/rusty brown, with many specks floaring, creamy off-white head. Aroma: caramel, butterscotch, stone, raisins. Taste: caramel, toasted malts, a bit of brown sugar, some coppery-bloody tones, a little dust, and some very earthy, musty hops. Finish: mellow, with lingering earthy hops and dust. Notes: Palate was smooth and slick. Brew was very drinkable. Was hoping for a bit more rye heat. A little hoppier than most Vienna’s I’ve had.

33 cl bottle @ home, rated on 05.06.2011
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 (9500) - 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.

thirdeye11 (5849) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2009
(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
