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.

Palme (3605) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
0.33l can. No shocker on the looks. It’s pale golden, crystal clear with a small quickly fizzing white lager head. The nose has a mild sweetness. Tones of earthy hops and mild hints of lime. Dull and not very good either. Yeah, definitely high on the carbonation and it has a thin watery feeling in the mouth. No real flavor here. Mild malt sweet with pale malts. Hints of that lime bitterness and it’s just a watery quickly forgotten pale lager. I really needed a mild not-to-cloying sweet beer after I’ve just had a few to many of these. 03.08.2014

Travlr (14475) - 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.

Bottle. Yellow golden. Light grainy malty, bit murky (adds character actually). Ightish, quite soft nice really. Bulk bit bland, but not totally bad.

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.
