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.

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.

jamaty (1735) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Dorada limpia y clara, muy clara. Uno o dos dedos de espuma que deja pelicula duradera. Aroma cereal. Muy ligera de cuerpo, acuosa y sabor también cereal malteado sin apenas contrapunto. Final algo más amargo. Se bebe bien pero no deja de ser floja. Eso sí, es bonita. Algo es algo.

Pale golden with a white frothy head. Sweetish malty aroma with a slightly metallic notes. Taste is smooth and malty. Just a faint touch of hops at the finish. A decent bulk lager. (0,33 can, bb 09 jan 2016)
