3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clean looks, stable head, but too grey. Traditional lager in Polish/Eastern European style. Good drinkable body, smooth. Could be more bitter, but not bad at all. Can’t believe I finally get my Finnish tick from a French supermarket... (33cl bottle from Auchan Saint Cyr)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 330 ml, pours golden with fast falling white head. Ester aromas with strong apple notes with a touch of sweet corn. Medium corn sweetness in taste with a slightly sour aftertaste. Boring lager with some with a light but not very disturbing defect.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
As Lapin Kulta Premium Export, which I think should at least be listed here as an alias, because I think most raters will encounter this beer more under this name than as "Lapin Kulta IV A". Moussy, yellowish white, thinnish and quickly opening head over a pretty orange blonde beer, almost amber-ish, a lot deeper and darker than usual for the style (in fact, if this is a pale lager, it is the least pale example I’ve ever seen); vivid columns of sparkling rise up from the bottom. Aroma of caramel and biscuit (clearly toasted malts have been used here), cookie dough and popcorn, iron, faint rotting grass, rainwater and cooked vegetables (representing pasteurization, I guess). Sweetish onset of old cookies and caramel, minerally carbonation, sourish accent, rather thin body, slick, with restrained graininess in the middle, otherwise a bit watery, fading out in the finish without noteworthy addition of hop bitterness, though a very brief, late, faint grassy bitterishness is there. Strange in being caramelly, perhaps a bit inspired by amber lagers but not quite that dark; otherwise, it does remain a still somewhat bland, fairly neutral, thin-bodied, mass-produced lager.

500ml can as 'Lapin Kulta Export'. Pretty sure I had this one in Helsinki. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and grainy with some hoppy notes. Well balanced and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear golden color, topped with a nice frothy white head. Basic malty aroma, some notes of grains also present, not much hoppy notes to be picked up. Taste is slightly sweet at first, followed by a refreshing bitterness and crisp and dry finish. Not bad, quite drinkable really.
