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.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2010
Golden color, small white head; aroma of slightly sweetish malt and hops; mouthfeel is thin and a bit overcarbonated; flavor of sweetish malt with slightly bitter finish. This beer is in Finland often regarded almost as some kind of an quality-beer by some people - I think it´s probably due to fact that it is the least marketed and costs slightly more than the other bulks; differences in quality are really not that big.
