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.

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"

A - Golden colored liquid with lots of small bubbles and a large white head that leaves some lacing.

S - Malt and hops, some hints of citrus.

T - Malt, some hops, some citrus, a bit bready and dry taste.

M - Thin body with lively carbonation.

D - A booring lager that works on warm days.

.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.
