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.

Can from the Viking ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn! Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, yeast, resin. The flavour is light bitter with a bubbly light watery earthy mineral hop bitter palate. Super light bodied with lively carbonation. This will be the one and only can i’ll ever buy of this beer. Truly awful.

Peter_L (1244) - SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
Burk@taxfree Cinderella. Ljust bärnstensfärgad vätska med massvis av kolsyra. Brädig, sädig och jolmig doft. Trots den synliga mängden kolsyra är den förvånanvärt sururkig och avslagen i smaken.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2014
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.

Tukkis (13) - FINLAND - JAN 6, 2014
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.
