cab (866) - - OCT 4, 2009
Can. 33cl. Weak hoppy aroma, slightly skunky. Mild sweetness, but your typical pale lager smell. Metalic and water.

Nurmis (877) - Oulu, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2018
0,33l can. Pours golden with small white head. Malt, grassy hops and a hint of alcohol. Bitter finish. Decent lager.

martjoobolut (5337) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2017
Can (5.2% ABV). It doesn't mention IV A, only III CAT. I. Pours golden. Aroma is sweet, booze, grains, cardboard. Flavor is sweet and bitter, grains, malt, fruits, slight nastiness. Body is watery. Overall: not good, but happy birthday Finland! (Day late I know, but yesterday I didn't have any time to pick up a Finnish beer).

thejackpacker (728) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2017
Can from Systembolaget. Eek this was terrible. It looked alright but was tinny and just most of the bad things that a macrolager can be.

BeerViking (5125) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2017
Pours darkish gold from the can. Sweet, corny nose, cheap sugary malt, light grassy hops.

kraddel (9323) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 22, 2017
Bottle, presumably this entry, given the ABV and number of rates. Bottle mentionned 'premium export' at 5.2 ABV. Sampled in a blind tasting, served in Black glassware, together with Dr. Beer. Gusher alert ! Smell is sweet, malty, floral, dusty. Taste is very mildly bitter. tad dry, in the feel, but still a sweet beer for sure. decent maltyness. no real esthers. pale malts ( white bread ) Not bad.

dchad56 (576) - - JUL 19, 2017
Bottle - clear golden yellow, medium carbonation with small white head. Typical lager aroma, not good mouthfeel. Even best lager not my favourite - this is not best lager.

RW80 (2900) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2017
33cl bottle. Appearance: White head on top of a clear yellow golden body. Aroma: Faint, but a hint of light malts and light hops. Taste: Sweetish with a light bitterness, Pale malts, and some bitter hops in the finish. Watery thin body , medium carbonation. Just one of so many industrial lagers. (backlog rating)

josanguapo (2035) - SPAIN - JUN 21, 2017
From Saveur Biere. Labeled Lapin Kulta Premium Export with an Abv of 5.2%. In Teku glass. Playing 12 Labours of Hercules 6. Leaning towards the sweet side but without being overly sweet. Fine

Rubin77 (2741) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 19, 2017
F: thin, white, quick gone. C: deep gold, clear. A: malty, grainy, sweet bread, metallic. T: malty, strangely sweet, corny, weak bitterness, straightforward commercial but no surprise, medium body, low carbonation, 33cl bottle as Premium Export from Auchan Market in Luxembourg.

MarcoBasile (467) - DENMARK - JUN 6, 2017
Malty aroma. Classic laget with a bit more corny aroma. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. The taste is actually very sweet with a bit of grass. But mainly sweet. Maybe ever so slightly skunked. It has a crispy mouthfeel, watery to oily texture. But at the end of the day it’s just another pilsner — and a sweet one at that.
