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.

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.

Tranquillity (1405) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2006
Bottled, Svenska Dagar, Pikkulintu, Finland. Not much aroma at all, slightly salty and sour. Quite dark red-brown colour with a small white head. Taste of some malt. Harsh, bitter finish.

Cavie (3749) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Bottle courtesy of bu11zeye. Clouded orange. Big earth tones. Sweet like a Belgian strong. Dry bitter taste. Easy but edges out bitter.

zeke626 (418) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle shared by akevitt. Pours a hazy, orange-amber body with a light brown foam head. Aroma of caramel malts, bread, and spices along with a hint of floral hops and maybe prunes. Aroma is much better than the flavor, which is pretty one-dimensional and mainly bread/caramel malts. Very watery on the palate. Finishes clean with a slight burnt malt and coffee finish.

Bottle @ home. Hazy red/maroon appearance with a small off white head. Sweet caramel malty, slightly roasty, bready nose. Bready, quite sweet, a touch roasty, caramel malty flavor. Nothing too special.

Lightly malty aroma. Amber in color with off white head. Lightly malty flavor...basically an amber.

Braudog (5582) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle. Poured with a moderately dark amber color, with a thin but firm pillowy head. The aroma is a bit funky and almost sour. This drinks with an interesting blend of flavors -- at first the caramel malt backbone of a classic fest beer, but then with a farmhouse-like wildness pops in. (#3869, 3/27/2010)

Benzai (7287) - 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.
