Picked up a bunch of cans of beer during my visit to Sweden and brought home a can of Lapin Kulta....I was unaware it was from Finland....which is cool cuz never had a beer from Finland! The Lager pours clear golden with good carbonation that produces a big white fluffy head that fades with time although did leave some lace. It smelled very similar to other Euro lagers....heinakin stella, etc. The taste was a little sweet with grainy backdrop and some hops. Mouthfeel was decent nice light body good for sessions. Overall its the best Finnish beer I ever had! Not bad.

Had it on flight from Delhi to Helsinki, poured from can into plastic glass. Dark yellow in colour, with a lot of fizz and a massive head and heavy lacing. Nose was very flowery with tofee notes, impressed. Taste of sweet malt at first with a short lived hop bitterness. Mouthfeel was medium with little sting, could be a possible session beer, but I would really settle for something else.

Poured into a branded pilsener glass from the 330mL bottle.

A: The beer is a pure gold color, clear with plenty of carbonation. 2 fninger pure white foamy head with ok retention and rings going all the way down the glass.

S: Malty, bready, great smell, light fruit touch at the end and a fleeting sweetness.

T: Into is clean, midpalate of bread. Finishes smooth with a touch of light bitterness and a light taste of bread. Strangely mally brew with some lingering fruitiness in there.

Overall: Amazing drinkability on this one. Rich taste, yet, light and refreshing. Very well done and an unexpected flavor from a Finnish Euro Pale. "Refreshing yet full bodied"

.33L emptied into a Pilsener.

A: Pours honey gold with a fizzy 2-finger white head which slowly receeds to a thick ring. Good lacing throughout.

S: Light, bready malt with floral hops.

M: Medium bodied with lots of carbonation.

T: Sweet, bready malt with underlying mild hops. No real balance here. Finish is abrupt, but not crisp. Astringent aftertaste lingers, like it has hop extract.

D: Not a very balanced beer and certainly not worth the premium price. I can say that I have experienced this beer. Now I don't have to experience it again.

Had this on the train from Helsinki to Rovaniemi a few weeks ago. Served with a small, fine, white head that lasts and a little lace. Color was a clear, deep yellow with bubble trails. Aroma was beery, hop, grain, malt. Flavor was similar to nose with good bittersweet and tang balance. Good body and carbonation. Finish was similar to flavor and of about average length. Servicable beer.
