Body is golden yellow with soapy white head that leaves clumps of lacing. Smell is sweet grains. Taste follows the nose with some grassy hops, finish is semi sweet, body is very light with a high carbonation. It is a bog standard Euro Pale that doesn't suffer from any unpleasant off notes.

I've had this both cans and bottles, and the cans are a lot better. You have to take into consideration that this is an inexpensive beer. Keeping that in mind, it is infinitely more drinkable than most beers in this price range. The color is golden, the head fades pretty fast but there is some good lacing. The flavor is predominantly dry grain. There is a slight hint of caramel and sea buckthorn berries, and I don't think I've ever said that about any beer before. The subtle background notes are only appreciated after you have this a few times, I suspect. Considering the price is about the same as Miller Genuine Draft, there's no question this is a fine value and many steps up in quality.

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

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