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.

Travlr (13508) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Can at the Finnish Weinachtsmarkt in Stuttgart. Clear golden yellow color, medium white head. Aroma of straw. Taste is plain, sweet lager. Not really a good choice for a Christmas market.

Can @ Havregatan. Sweet malty and grainy with grassy and metallic notes, medium body with a watery texture. The finish is dry and sweet with a light bitterness. Thanks Örjan.

Drank from a can outdoors. It’s your typical cheap lager with some slight hints of malts in the taste.

0,33 tölkki@ rantakylä. Pistävä haju, pissankeltainen. Vetinen, hyvin mieto maltaisuus. Kyllä tätä juo.

jmgreenuk (5015) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2014
Can from the Viking ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn! Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, yeast, resin. The flavour is light bitter with a bubbly light watery earthy mineral hop bitter palate. Super light bodied with lively carbonation. This will be the one and only can i’ll ever buy of this beer. Truly awful.
