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.

12oz can poured into a shaker. My mom brought this back from her trip to finland. Pours a pale, clear gold with a half finger white head. Aroma of grass, hay and light skunk. Taste is light bitter. Grains and grass. Light bodied with a thin texture. Lively carbonation and a surprisingly long finish. Overall, not bad. Ive had much much worse in this catagory.

(Tasted blindfolded) straw yellow colour with big bubbly head which disappears very quickly. Crispy beer, with delicate malt flavors because of the high carbonation. Aftertaste tries to bring this beer up, but at the end it is a bit lame.

dexcansino (453) - Andalucía, SPAIN - APR 4, 2013
Cerveza dorada muy cristalina. Es refrescante y fácil de beber, pero le falta mucho sabor y cuerpo como para ser considerada una buena cerveza. En fin, hay que probarlas todas, ¿de eso se trata no?

Clear golden and a decent head. A mild malty aroma with a hint of grassy hops. Taste is quite similar. sweet malts and lightly bitter/sour finish. Obviously a thin body and highly carbonated.

Lowenbrau (1935) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 26, 2013
330ml bottle. Malty and hay aromas, pours bright gold with average white head, vanishing, no lacing. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is malty, cereal, some diacetil notes. Average lager, nothing remarkable.

Leini (774) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
330ml can. Clear golden body, white head. A malty taste which feels a bit artifical, and a touch of syrup sweetness. Pretty flat and tasteless.

I am very happy that Brewery Olvi still brews this beer with the same level as always. Golden colours, very nice taste map. Honey, lemon and rye bread. It is very important piece of information that this beer is the best beer you can find in finnish supermarkets, gasoline stations and kiosks in the price class 1€/can.
