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.

Bottle with friends. Pours a clear yellow appearance with a white head. Corny, squash, sweet malty nose. No herbs. Twangy corny flavor with a bit of apple. Not good.

Pour out of bottle, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grass, sour grain, hints of trash, slight dms. Taste is a mix of dms, sour grain, grass, slight corn, cereal, hay in there, finishing fairly dry, trashy, corn. Bleh.

vinivini (749) - BELARUS - FEB 12, 2014
Pale golden coour, white foamy head. Smells of grain, bread, grass. Similar aroma. Thin palate. The taste has notes of sweetness & sourness but no balance. Malty finish. Some hops in aftertaste. Not totally bead, just very average.

Hazy off-yellow pour. Creamy head, bubbly. Musty aroma as previously stated. Hoppy taste. Too bitter for my taste. Not a fan.

500ml can, kindly shared by djoeye. Pale golden body, airy white head, dotted spots on the glass. Pale malts and grass to the nose. Mixed taste of dough, wheat and lemon. Mild malt-fruity finish. Soft in the mouth. So and so Euro lager (Tromsø 17.01.2014).

stevoj (2952) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Musty, citrusy aroma, slightly sour, hazy golden body with small thick but creamy head. Taste is slightly better than the smell, with some of the malt coming through the funk. Aftertaste is more of the sour musty taste, but fades quickly. Not sure if this is supposed to taste like this, or the bottle is slightly skunked.
