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.

Bottle from Beertopia. Poured clear dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced excellent to good lacing. Moderate roasted bread aroma. Medium body. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with spicy food.

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).

Bov (13221) - 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

hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2007

3.2
thewolf (12803) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2007
Bottle. Bought @ Kvickly, Svendborg. Let us see if Nils Oscar disappoints me again :o) Pours a clear redish brown with an almost non-existent head. Aroma is quite fruity, some strawberries, caramel and a little cardboard feel to it. Mouthfeel is light. Flavour is sweet at first, with the same fruity caramel. The cardboard appears slightly again. Extremely dry at the back - not exactly from hops directly, I feel... can’t really explain it. But yes, it’s a good Vienna, but perhaps not a 98 percentile...

3.2
Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2008
Nice lager, a little smoke and edge from (toasted) rye, nice smooth drinking, even creamish. Good white head on a shade of yellow. Neutral aroma. Satisfying though drying aftertaste.Good drinkability.Good balance as sweetness in there and moderate hops.
