Bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with an off-white head. Malty hoppy aroma. Malty flavor with nice hoppy bitterness ad hints of pine needles. Long bitter aftertaste. sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 1, 2006
(Draught) Clear amber color with a medium, foamy and slightly tanned head. Caramely, slightly roasty, neutral aroma with sourish-vineous hints. Caramely-malty flavor with aromatic, piney hopping. Medium-bodied, slightly slicky-vinous palate with smooth carbonation. A nicely hoppy, neutral and balanced brew. Could be fuller, but suits the style. joergen (27983) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2006

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2008 Bottle. Very nice, dusty, malty aroma. Aroma reminds me of the regular Kalasöl. Distinct smokey flavour. Brown colour with a very small head. Aftertaste is a bit astringent. 8 3 7 3 13

Bottle, 5.2%. Refreshing hop aroma. Clear brown colour, small tan head. The flavour starts roasted, turns quite malty and finishes with a grassy and piney hoppiness. 7 3 7 3 15

Mmm.A thick white head covering a brownish reddish golden beer with an excellent fragrance. The flavor is full of hops and caramell, sweetness well balanced and the aroma deep and rich. The bitterness is excellent. The beer is excellent. YES!! hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2005
Dark brown/amber colour, thick white head. Sweet ´n ´sour nose. Sweet, sugary candy flavour. A little alcohol taste. Soft drink feeling. screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2005
Brown in colour. Has a little grassy aroma. Also from roasted malt. The taste is malty and has some sweetness.

Bottle. The colour is red-brown; the head is large, airy, firm and beige.MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2005
The complex smell got a fine flavour of aroma hops (Fuggles? Challenger?), a touch of malt, some bitterness and a sweet note.
The carbonation is both refreshing and gentle.
The taste is first hoppy with a touch of Madeira, and then it develops into a full-bodied taste with a mild bitterness and a sour-earthy touch. The aftertaste is long and balanced with some earthy notes.
The best beer from Nils Oscars I have reviewed so far: A well-crafted, complex and musty vienna lager
A red beer with appearant hops and roasted malts in aroma. Slightly sweet, but still with a good, nice balance. Pleasant hoppy aftertaste.
