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.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Golden-yellow with a fluffy, whipped-eggwhite head and teeny-tiny bits of particulate. Dry, floral & grassy aromas with baby powder, light doughy yeasts and an earthen note. Flavor was lightly sweet, crisp & "spritzy" (to borrow a word), but it was overall a mediocre offering. Lightly metallic afterwards. I wasn’t depressed before drinking this beer, but I was so after only a few sips. I guess you’d call that "disappointment".

For some reason, Charlie at the Tree had this and Kalnapilis’ malt liquor on hand, so he insisted I take a bottle of each. (?) On a previous visit, he’d given my girlfriend a decent bottle of wine. I guess we know who looks best.
This is a non-offensive drink. Little aroma, some grass & corn sweetness. Little color, a very pale yellow with a creamy white head. Not much flavor, which is good, because besides the light sweet malts and a smattering of earthy hops, some tinny corn syrup was creeping through. The finish is a light metallic bitterness. Non-offensive, but, so?

Hansen (7441) - Assentoft, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2005
Standard beer, like so many others. A little faul aroma, like discount-beers, flavor ok, some small hints of hops.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2005
You can see by all the Danish ratings that Netto just got a shipment of these :-)
As for the beer itself: boring, bland, straw yellow piss beer. Chalk up one for the drain.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
50 cl Can. Pale golden colour, not much aroma but some malty tones and a hoopy nose. Good clean malt flavour with little bitter aftertaste. A very avarage lager.

stouby (4039) - Holbæk, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2005
Can, at home. Yellow with white head, mostly diminishing, no lacings. Moderate malty, light hoppy aroma. Flavor light sweet with a moderate bitter/acidic finish. Light to medium body, watery, soft carbonated.

Papsoe (25075) - 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
