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.

Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2007
A bit skunked and slightly oxidized. The head struggled to have any life to it. Light toffee notes with a mild, and a bit off, hop profile. Would’ve liked to have seen a deeper malt backbone to this one. Not impressed, but would be curious as to what a fresh bottle was intended to taste like.

BOLTZ7555 (3127) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Transparent golden amber with minimal head and lacing. The brew possesses toffee, buttermilk biscuit, and herbal notes. Love the backstory here. Just wish they made better beer.

bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle. Rich copper amber beer with an off-white head. Rye and caramel malt aroma. Sweet malt flavorwith a bit of chocolate and rye and enough hops to back. Medium body. Dark malt, grains, rye, and some hops linger.

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.
