Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Disappears at once. Aroma is citric, light malty sweetness. High carbonation, rather watery. Flavour is very sweet with some light citric hops. Poor.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lapin Kulta Preimum Lager (5.2%), courtesy of and shared with heavy (thanks!)
Poured a pale golden body with a medium to big white head. Fresh grassy hop in the nose, some malt and marzipan (hmm). The taste is almost brutally ordinary though. Dull sweetish maltiness, dull hop. Boooooriiiiiing...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
As Lapin Kulta Premium 5,2 in a 0.5 l can brought from Sweden by a friend. Great thanks Sina! It’s my first Finnish beer! Terveydeksi! It poured standard pale golden body with medium-sized head. Malty nose, flowery and some bread with hoppy notes. Fuller in body, but not very pleasant, it becomes ordinary malt based pale lager. Still, a touch of some bitterish hops can be felt here. Pleasant, but quite short sweetish finish. Nothing more than an lower average pale lager.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Best of the finnish big name bulks. Refreshing beer with a little bitterness to distinguish it from the more boring ones. Doesn’t inspire sonnets but in a bar it will do.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to ring, leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is balanced with hints of caramel. 330ml bottle €4.50 at Hotel Ivalo in Finland; Hartwall is part of Heineken N.V. From my notes - 7/12/2008.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tested as Lapin Kulta Premium Lager - 5,2 % ABV. The bottle looks good. The beer in the glass is not very zippy, not much foam. Starts very vapid. The finish is malty-dry, that does not fit to the rest of the beer! Not so good!
