330ml can. When I first drove to Finland aged 22, I bought a crate of this stuff and although it was a touch sweet and unoriginal, it still tasted amazing to my young tastebuds, just because it was Finnish. Nowadays, it still tastes pretty boring but will always remind of those days.

ectuohy27 (740) - ESTONIA - APR 2, 2015
(Sold as as Lapin Kulta Export, with Norwegian and Estonian deposit markings, in Tallinn) Very clean/crisp and inoffensive PL--for the style it manages to do the job rather well, though there’s nothing of real interest here of course. Wondering if there’s any difference between it and the domestic Luomu 4.5...

A regular lager to go along with a meal with friends. Not much to point out on a rather simple beer.

I love it on tap. I called distributor to find out where they sell that in Estonia for example, and they told me that this is highly confidential. Anyways, it is good on tap when not in FI (money-wise - I was asked 5 and 8 Eur for 1/2L). A good lager, and a stable quality.
