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.

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2010
500 ml can. Rated @ 22.3.2009.
Pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. Malty on the nose with mild hops and even citrus. Flavour of grains, malts and mild hops. Light bodied with a thin mouthfeel. Drinkable.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Light golden color. Almost no head at all. Typical lager smell, but perhaps milder than normal. Taste is mostly watery. Some hops thou. Mostly boring.

progressive (74) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2010
Sandels is good because, as it says, it’s a strong and a mild beer. Tastes quite good even a bit more warmer than some other pale lagers. Not annoying and the taste that is hard to describe is nicely full.

Marko (3947) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 4, 2010
0.33l bottle. Poured a yellow-golden body pierced with huge streams of carbonation, topped with a creamy white head that went away relatively slowly. Sweet dusty nose, a bit creamy. Sweetish bready water, "mild". Meh. Maybe a very light hopiness.

Kavu (2257) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2010
Pours yellow with a light ugly head. Aroma and flavor are what you smell and taste in every bulk lager in Finland. Perhaps a bit softer than the rest. Good when you’re very thirsty.

MikeKeller (879) - Kemi, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Canned. Clear, pale golden beer with dissapearing white head. Not very much aroma but some maltiness and even a bit hoppyness in the nose. Light malty taste and leaves a good after taste. Easy to drink, soft and smooth mouthfeel. Better ones in Finnish mass produced lagers.

Hansen (6691) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2010
Not unpleasent, just bouring. Light yellow and clear. Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Light bitter flavor. Watery texture.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2010
Golden color, small white head; aroma of slightly sweetish malt and hops; mouthfeel is thin and a bit overcarbonated; flavor of sweetish malt with slightly bitter finish. This beer is in Finland often regarded almost as some kind of an quality-beer by some people - I think it´s probably due to fact that it is the least marketed and costs slightly more than the other bulks; differences in quality are really not that big.
