Mild aroma has hay, bit stuffy with cardboard. Clear golden, short head leaves lacing. Taste has also hay, vegetable, cardboard. Soft but thin and watery, standard carbonation. Overall too flat and thin.

Słodowy lager w ciekawym opakowaniu (puszka o pojemności 1 Pinta). Ale do stylůw angielskich mu daleko, natomiast jest o wiele lepszy ten lager niż słynna Lapin Kulta z tego kraju.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank quite a few of these on a Finnair flight between Finland and Singapore. Did the job at the time!
Medium gold with sparse carbonation and a loose, creamy pad of white atop. Lightly spicy hop nose; slightly dank and vegetal with a decent breath of pale grains. Light bodied, quite tight and soft in carbonation. Delicate peppery hop and palest malt flavours dominate. A sourish edge in back, quite floral before a soft peaking bitterness. Finish is sweet/sour but rather short and crisp even as it warms. A lot cleaner on the palate than the nose. Nothing offensive here. Actually worked out to be quite refreshing, but that may have been due to long-haul exhaustion and the cabin pressure. (33cL can)
