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.

[Tasted with the RISK-bros.] Clear copperred look with a huge mediumfat head. Slight burned corn aroma. Creamy. Nice flavor of classic märzennotes. Round mouthfeel, licorice and a bitter finish. Very good foodbeer!

Blom (831) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
Amber with a fine head. Perfumed and bitter aroma with a very nice flavour of orange, caramel and bread. It is extremely refreshing and by far one of the best viennas I have ever tried.

heemer77 (5099) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2008
Dark copper colored body with a thin, white head. The aroma is rich with caramel and fall leaves. There is also some pie crust and toasted notes. The taste is toasted almonds with some earthy orange peels. There is also some hints of raisins. Farily highly carboanted. A nicely made beer.

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2008
11.2oz bottle. Pours a coppery dark amber with a firm off-white head. Aroma is sweet and malty, with scents of syrupy hops, caramel, roasted malt, and floral notes. Taste is light and crisp, with a flavor of caramel, dark fruit, and syrupy hops giving way to a dry finish of roasted malt. Light but full-flavored -- delicious brew.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2008
Slightly hazy, reddish amber appearance with a small, off white head. Malty, sweet aroma. Earthy, malty, grainy (rye, maybe), spicy, decently hopped taste, with the sweetness of the aroma no longer evident. Bitter, medium bodied mouthfeel, leading to a lingering finish. Very flavorful.

EithCubes (4818) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle. Nose sweet and citric with pale and caramel malt, nice musty hops. Deep copper-orange pour with a densely rocky yellow-beige head. Crisp and lightly bitter taste caramel and roast grain with light smoke, subtle lemony citrus sneaking in with those musty hops, faint toffee in the bg. Touch of grapefruit, a little dust and grain. Lightly spicy, bready, with both featuring prominently in the very dry aftertaste. Medium / slightly lighter body. Deliciously earthy - a lot to like here!
