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.

50 cL can, thanks to faroeviking. Pours golden yellow, clear, with a white head. Grainy and slight hay aroma. Dry grainy flavour, not much more. Ends dry.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) Golden beer with a huge head. Almost no feel of malt nor of hops. But on the other hand this has an extremely smooth and soft mouthfeel and is very easy to drink. But no real exciting lager. 160405

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 Bottle
Typical lager color, small white foamy/creamy head. Lots of carbonation. Light metallic hop aroma. Watery very slightly malty flavor - typical to Olvi products. Easy to forget. (3/2/3/2/6 1.6)
Re-rated, bottled (BB 01/2005)
Lager outlook. Hard metallic aroma. Soft, sweetish, watery. (3/2/3/2/7 1.7)
Re-rated, bottled (BB 07/2006)
Golden color, small white head. Strange yeasty and skunky aroma. Carbonated, soft yeasty malty flavor (not like really yeast, but similar taste). Malty aftertaste. (3/2/3/2/7 1.7)

Can. Pours a hazy golden colour with a short lasting head. Weak sweet caramel and grainy aroma. The flavour is rather thin with some maltiness, grains, bit of caramel and grass. Sweetish grainy and grassy finish. Thanks Patty boy.
