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.

kalervo (741) - 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.

lusikka (6570) - 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 (4068) - 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.
