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.

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.

kalervo (683) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2010
My favourite finnish bulk lager. Not good as a beer, but quite good for getting drunk. Compared to other cheap finnish lagers, taste is quite rich and soft.
