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.

I am very happy that Brewery Olvi still brews this beer with the same level as always. Golden colours, very nice taste map. Honey, lemon and rye bread. It is very important piece of information that this beer is the best beer you can find in finnish supermarkets, gasoline stations and kiosks in the price class 1€/can.

500 ml. Straight from the bottle. Malty sweet, bready taste and aroma with some plastic notes as well. Weak industrial brew.

Cant really say anything about aroma. So faint. Taste is a bit of malty sweetness. No noticable hops on this can. Doesnt taste bad but nothing good to say about this.

TorbenJensen (1439) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2015
This lager is still a mainstream lager from the Finnish. It has rapidly dwindling foam, but despite its rather dull and flat appearance emits a nice hoppy aroma with a touch of a little flower. Malt full bodied unit is medium and its hoppy bitterness is dry and provides protracted aftertaste.
