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.

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.

drpimento (2098) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 16, 2011
Poured with a large foamy, frothy, white head that soon settle to a light cover that almost looks scumy and some lace. Color is a clear, bright yellow with lots of large bubble trails that look like carbonated water or soda pop. Aroma is beery with faint hops and malt. Flavor is mostly sweet and tang with a bit of bitterness. Body is highly dominated by the carbonation which leaves a tingly sensation with some sweetness in the finish. I will not consume more of this given a more reasonable option.

thirstyrabbit (998) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 12, 2011
Can. Pale golden, small head. Sweet and medium dry taste. A bit metallic finish. Predictably mediocre.

330ml can. Basic Finnish lager with a metallic taste with hints of malts. Nothing special but not the worst.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 10, 2011
Can on Finnair AY 78. Medium gold with a fine head. Unobtrusive nose of rich malt, bread, a bit of biscuit. Tastes less rich, a bit thin, with a touch of cardboard and a whiff of grassy hops. Ok for plane beer.

Cuso (3777) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 13, 2011
Bottled somewhere in Helsinki. Golden color with huge white head. Aroma of sweet malt, some fruitiness, grain. Taste is quite refreshing, malt, caramel, light sourness. Bittersweet finish. Not bad. (Rating from 7/2010)
