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.

rostetti (202) - Oulu, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Can. Grassy and malty aroma. Taste has some corn, malt and grain. Probably the best big Finnish lager, but of course still nothing special.

Kullankeltainen kirkas olut pienellä, nopeasti häviävällä vaahdolla. Hieman katkeroa, aika vetinen.

Kobracai (147) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2016
Clear gold colour. Light malty aroma of hay and some kind of cracker or cookie. Taste is initially balanced and a bit bitter, with quite long finish. I’d say a bit better than most of the Finnish big guns like Lapin Kulta, Koff and Karhu lagers, and around same prize.

Nevalainen (617) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Clear pale color with airy head. Aroma is malty and bready. Taste is light bitter, nothing saying. Drinkable, but not remarkable.

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.
