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.

Advocate (2) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2011 does not count
How could a lager even be better than this? I just hesitate to give a full score to any beer. I have drank many beers and I this is the best. The one beer I just can’t stop drinking. This is the one beer I compare other beers to - as how close they get to this. It’s crisp and smooth and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is airy and the aftertaste makes you want to drink more.
