1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml can, clear gold colour, medium mostly vanishing rocky head, very little lacing. Light malty aroma of hay and cookie, light floral hops. Taste is initially balanced and a bit bitter, turning into a lightly bitter, modearately long finish with a slightly starchy feel. Light body, texture, lively carbonation. Perhaps a bit better than most of the Finnish bulk lagers, but still has all the flaws of them.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sandels has the highest quality among finnish bulk lagers. Has a mild but appealing taste, while nearly never has taste flaws. Works reliably and easily as a thirst quencher.
As with all the bulk lagers, Sandels has the typical flaws: absent finishing taste, must be drunk cold, and has no intricate aromas.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Muy ligerita, no destaca mucho en nariz, tal vez algo de mantequilla. Demasiada burbuja de entrada, sabor muy fugaz, aguada, le falta intensidad por todas partes, muy flojita en todos los aspectos

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can. Sweet, light grain aroma. Clear, pale, medium white head. Light sweet, with a bitter aftertaste. Slightly acidic. Light body, thin/oily texture, soft carbonation. Another bland beer that you should probably avoid.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
0,33L can from K supermarket in Finland.
Pours a shortlived head on a straw yellow body.
Scents of something faint from grass or meadows.
Tastes grains, wet grass and faint sweet malts.
Watery. Ends with small hints of wet grass and sweet malts and metal.
It’s is drinkable, but that is water too.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear straw orange beer with a persistent white tiny head. Aroma and flavor are just maizey sweetness. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonated with no finish or bitterness to speak of. Someone ordered this for me without asking so what the heck, raters gonna rate.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Can, 0.5 l, 20130926) The beer poured pale golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness and hint of grass. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts, hint of grass and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and mildly bitter. Easy to drink and very easy to forget.
