2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not as bad as normal Lapin Kulta. Just as bitter as normal Finnish lager. Includes a nice taste that reminds me of buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum).
The appearance is quite nice (amber, clear; nice foam).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Mahogany, clear. Nose has bready malts (dark syrup-based bread), a bit of metallic notes. Body is lightish, malty, brown. Some soft roasted tones, but very malty and easy. A bit like a dunkel.. but softer in a way. But feels processed, or mass produced, even with the ’ecological’ labeling.
