COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The respected war hero colonel Johan August Sandels was a skilled tactician also at negotiations. Once, when a negotiation for an armistice was coming to a dead end, Sandels suggested a lunch break. The salted meat was washed down with plenty of beer, and soon the enemy sent his messenger to give the word that the negotiations appear to take a long time.

Pours a one finger white head that fades quickly to ring, leaving little lace. Crystal clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Skunky nose. Flavor is balanced and not as bad as nose but nothing special. 330ml bottle €1.35 Kahvio Ahokylä, Finland. From my notes - 7/11/2008.
