This is one of Finland's most popular beers and it's not bad, but it definately is not anything to brag about.

A: Golden color with medium-sized head. Very little lacing.

S: Not much going on there. Your standart Pale Lager aroma that resembles Pilsner smell.

T: Light-bodied, a hint of pine and malts. Nothing that would make one go "aaah!".

M: Quite a bit of carbonation. Small-sized bubbles.

O: This is the Finnish version of run-of-the-mill beer. Available in Finland everywhere in cans, bottles and on-tap. Sold in Finnish supermarkets by the case (24 cans), the Finns call it (the case) "mäyräkoira" (translated: dachshund), not sure why they've nicknamed it after a dog beed.

Pooring this one in give's you a short and not lasting head and a golden and clear beer. Nose is oxidated malty, sweet and empty as taste is. Misses fullness of taste and bitterness is not present. Aftertaste is just litle maltsweet but mostly watery. Poorout after couple of sips.

Tested: Can and can poured in glass

A - clear golden color with minor head

S - OK, it smells like beer.. no hoppy or other aromas

T - thin body but thirst quenching.

M - feels like enriched water in your mouth.

D - very good. It has to be icecold!

To be honest, I have seen Finland's beers reviewed here. you should judge them only after sitting in sauna for hours and rolling in the snow => you did life in Finland.
Lapin Kulta (gold of lappland) has its special place when it come to 'thinner' beers...
Compared to mass-products from the US? TAKE the lapin kulta!!
