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. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy and relatively clean, with light husky malty notes. Actually not that bad.

brnandersen (3203) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2012
Pint size can from shop in Inari, Finland, 29.7.2012. Slightly hazy golden colour with a fast fading, small head. Light sweet caramel malts and grainy aromas. Taste is light sweet. Light body with a thin texture, average carbonation. Short, sweet finish with grains and grasses. Pretty boring.

zomba (212) - Nokia, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2012
330ml can. Basic Finnish lager with a metallic taste with hints of malts. Nothing special but not the worst.

Beerheart65 (1369) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Mild aroma has hay, bit stuffy with cardboard. Clear golden, short head leaves lacing. Taste has also hay, vegetable, cardboard. Soft but thin and watery, standard carbonation. Overall too flat and thin.

Słodowy lager w ciekawym opakowaniu (puszka o pojemności 1 Pinta). Ale do stylów angielskich mu daleko, natomiast jest o wiele lepszy ten lager niż słynna Lapin Kulta z tego kraju.

ALLOVATE (2857) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2012
Drank quite a few of these on a Finnair flight between Finland and Singapore. Did the job at the time!
Medium gold with sparse carbonation and a loose, creamy pad of white atop. Lightly spicy hop nose; slightly dank and vegetal with a decent breath of pale grains. Light bodied, quite tight and soft in carbonation. Delicate peppery hop and palest malt flavours dominate. A sourish edge in back, quite floral before a soft peaking bitterness. Finish is sweet/sour but rather short and crisp even as it warms. A lot cleaner on the palate than the nose. Nothing offensive here. Actually worked out to be quite refreshing, but that may have been due to long-haul exhaustion and the cabin pressure. (33cL can)

UPDATED: APR 24, 2015 Can from friend, thanks Antsu! Clear golden colour with medium head. Aroma has some hops. Flavour is sweet, watery, great at sauna.Pretty much basic makro lager, still better than most of them.
