Lapin Kulta IVA is light, easy to drink and fresh lager beer; and many people think that it is at best in this ABV. Aftertaste is soft and pleasant. ABV 5,2 %, gravity 12 %, color 8 EBC.

Looks OK in the glass, clear gold with a fluffy white head. Retention is acceptable. Sweet malt is all the aroma has to offer, at least there is no skunk. The flavour is quite plain... consisting of a solid bitterness without much hop flavour combined with sweet malt and alcohol flavours which was strange for the abv. Dry finish.

Tranquillity (1584) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2006
Draugth. Fruity aroma, lots of hops. Fresh grapefruits in both taste and finish. Only marginally better than the III-version.

MoritzF (8953) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2006
(can) Clear, pale golden with a short frothy white head. Sweetish perfumed malty nose with shy traces of grassy hops. Sweet flavour, light to medium body, crispy carbonation. Pretty bland grainy initial taste; slim and short malty and non-hoppy finish. At least I would call it an “emergency beer”.

33cl can mailed by friend from Finland. Malty lager. Not my favorite style but a resonably good version. No worse than American macrobrewer lagers. Didn’t make me hurl. Wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it but wouldn’t refuse it if offered as a guest somewhere.

gnoff (9190) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2006
33 cl can. Light golden color with a big, but quickly dying, white head. Sweet malty scent, rather refreshing. Malty and sweet taste with a sweet aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel with low bitterness. Easy to drink when cold.

Had this at a corner store in Tallin, Estonia, via can. Poured a pale yellow color with fizzy white head. Aroma is a tad sweet and grassy. Flavor pretty metallic and grassy. Overall, not too good.

Draught at <a href=http://www.eatz.fi/ target=blank>Eatz in Helsinki, Finland. Light golden in colour, lasting white head, some lace. The aroma is your typical pale lager grass and grains, very mild hops. The flavour is grassy and grainy, herbal, light floral hops. Mildly bitter mouthfeel, light body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes with a grainy sweetness. The highlight of this beer was watching some women eating her hamburger with a knife and fork.

Fine lager. Looks good with big, lasting head. Hops flavour, dry end, not alcoholic. Average Nothern lager seems better than the Polish one.

harrisoni (15809) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2006
33cl bottle. Pale gold with thin white head. Bit of stale malt, bit sickly in mouth, some citrus, some hop bite even. Not too horrible.

On tap on the train to Lapeenranta, Finalnd. Poured yellow with a fizzy white head. Minimal corn, grass aroma. Flavor is light toffee, corn, grass. Clean. Not bad for style, but not good as beer.
