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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 4, 2008
Standard macro lager with little distinction. Medium straw colour with a floppy, foamy, white head. Timid aroma of malt, grain and corn. Slim grassy edge to it. Watery flavour, a little on the sweet side, grainy, finishes a grassy, peppery and quickly. Light bodied with a watery texture that gets sticky sometimes and fizzy carbonation. Several 33cl cans down the gullet.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Light lager appearance, and a taste to match. Very drying on the mouth, but not due to a recognisable bitterness. Unusually for a Finish light lager, this actually has traces of nasty still left in it. Avoid.

Can. Pours a hazy golden colour with a short lasting head. Weak sweet caramel and grainy aroma. The flavour is rather thin with some maltiness, grains, bit of caramel and grass. Sweetish grainy and grassy finish. Thanks Patty boy.

KnutAlbert (6013) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2007
Canned. Soft with a round malty flavour and some aroma hops. Not a soft lager in the Bohemina sense. A little metallic edge, too.

RichardGretton (4220) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2007
Bottle @ Oluthuone Kaisla, Helsinki, Finland. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly fruity, malty and dry, and the flavour is mildly dry and slightly watery. Overall a quite refreshing lightly dry lager.
