2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from Finn Arvid, shared with ratebeer-Finn. Frothy and bubbly beige head, spotty lace to the glass. Deep, dark brown body. Vague smell of chocolate malts, moderate roasted. Dark malts to the taste buds, including dark chocolate and nuts. Roasted bitterness to the finish. Accepted, in fact, rather nice in a Lapin Kulta context (session in Tromsø, 12.01.2012).

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
5+ Slightly stodgy roasty bready aroma, a bit caramelly and cakey, and biscuity.
4 Deep red, tight off-white head, persistent and leaving lots of lacing.
6 Almost chocolatey twist to the roastiness. A bit stodgy and mashy. A touch on the sweet side, but nowhere as bad as the US sugar bombs. (So it’s swee, but not sugary.)
3 Full smooth palate, you can sense the residual sugars. Pleasant carbonation. Immediate finish is nicely chocolatey, and later had some bitterness from both the roast and from earthy hops.
10 Got all the right ingredients and in roughly the right proportions. One of Lapin Kulta’s better offerings. However, there’s something that makes it not quite work. It’s a bit dead. Anna thinks it’s a bit astringent and wants me to drop the points a bit, but honestly, this isn’t a bad beer at all in my mind. Throw out the caramel, and make this all year round, and phase out that normal Lahden Kusta that you make, Hartwall, please.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl bottle @ Nurmo, BBE 17.03.2012
Aroma has metal, some spices and hints of chocolate. Flavour has some coffee, chocolate, metal and spices. Dry and nutty finish. Not bad, I actually like the coffee and chocolate here. However, the metal and spices are not nice.

The best Lapin Kulta - beer I have tasted. Much more taste than in regular finnish lager.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 330ml bottle from Alepa
Pours reddish brown with a large bubbly head. Slightly metallic and malty aroma with hints of caramel. Taste is bready and malty with slightly metallic notes. Finish is carbonated and sticky. Decent for a bulky lager.
