COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and can; Pasteurised.
Gold medalist at World Beer Cup in category 19, Münchner-Style Helles, 36 Entries.
In creating Kalnapilis Original, our brewers selected the finest Saaz hops. The beer has an especially rich and harmonious flavour while its foam is sturdy and long-lasting. Feel the unique flavour and aroma that seems like it is straight out of the keg.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
Can 50 cl) Very pale golden with a decent, white head. Fairly malty but with the typical Eastern-european tang of dusty cardboard. This is no good - and a bad start for my first Lithuanian rating. 260705

Light hoppy nose, notes of corn. Pale yellow colored beer, small white head. Light hoppy flavor, but wtih notes of wet cardboard.

joergen (21533) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
Canned. Clear yellow coloured with a small white head. Aroma of malts, corn and spices. Flavour of malts and corn with metallic notes.

NosirIwont (2008) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
Can. Yellow colour. White head. Slightly citrusy hoppy aroma. Cereals. Flavour is sweetish with hoppy and grassy notes. Metallic finish. An average beer, but still substatially better than a certain 2 other World Beer Cup 2004 medalists I’ve encountered (i.e. Zeunerts and Sofiero).

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 25, 2005
Botlle. Pale golden colour with a small white head. Malty hay aroma and a sweet malty hay raste. Light body and a light dry finish.

haf (528) - Gijon, SPAIN - APR 29, 2005
Es un descubrimiento las cervezas de lituania son buenas cerveza rubias y BARATISIMAS.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 4, 2004
Golden colored. Very malty aroma with some sweetness there too. Medium bodied, traditional baltic sweet and malty aroma. I don’t know if it’s the hops that make these lagers to be so skunky and grassy, maybe local people like, I’m not so familiar with it.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2004
Pale straw colour with a light sparkle. Grassy-grainy aroma. Palate is balanced - grassy hop, hint of berry notes, prickly crisp finish. OK beer for the "almost pilsner" style.

Donatas (188) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 16, 2004
Colour not impressed me at all. Light alcohol finish. Not very much difference from the old "Kalnapilis premium". It is not the second-third brewery in Lithuania, and not the second-third beer. But the improvement, compared to 1990’s is visible.
