Metallic macro lager. Can be any macrolager, but quite refreshing.

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.

5.2% ABV. 50cl can reviewed in Kuopio, Finland.

This is a crisp, clean, light-bodied refreshing lager with a nicely soft mouthfeel and a simple but balanced taste. Flavour profile emphasizes clean barley and generic pilsner malts, but never suffers from the metallic off-notes often observed in the style. Hop presence is minimal (to style). Very cohesive, though not gestalt. Well put together in spite of its obvious shallowness, Lapin Kulta Premium Lager Beer is a nice budget offering at Alko stores in Finland and is a notch or two above most pale lagers in Finland.

Highly drinkable with a well-hidden albeit average ABV. I might get it again if I'm after an affordable picnic beer, but I wouldn't bother shelling out for it on-draught. It's pretty much what you'd expect, and I think it's an above average pale lager.

Low C+ (3.05) / ABOVE AVERAGE

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"
