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.

Poured this cold with an average sized, foamy, off-white head that settles after a bit and some lace. Color is a clear yellow with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is beery, a little sweet and mild. Flavor isn’t so good - sweet, corn, lots of carbonic tang, almost no hop or malt. Body is a bit watery and carbonation is fizzy. Finish is dominated by the tang, is burpy, and a little sweet. Won’t finish the glass.

Pale golden colour with short white head. Aroma has fresh notes of malt, bread and a little bit of citrus.

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Lithuanica, Birmingham. Pale straw with short white head. Thin, grainy, watery pale lager, supposed to be packed with Saaz, but not my bottle, mine had a slightly sweet, candy flavour rather than a sharpish lemon hint. Pretty poor to be honest.

Pours a hazy dark gold with a light ring head and bits of lace. It certainly isn’t a winner, but with light caramel malt and mild carbonation/ hop bittering in the finish, it is as good or better than many other "industrial" pale lagers. Not a keeper, but slug it down the next time you finish with the lawn, and you’ll like it enough.

DanielBrown (3913) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2012
Bottle from shop on Rookery Road, Handsworth. Very pale, with a quickly receding white cloudy head. Pretty plain lager. Very smooth on the tongue, like rolled biscuit dough. Not massively exciting. A bit sour on finish too.

500ml bottle in a shaker. Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts and a little hops. Flavor not bad for a pale lager, but really light. A decent beer of the style.

Aubrey (3451) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Pale yellow with a bit of haze. Beery, fruity, sweet-smelling nose. Lively carbonation up front; watery toward the finish. Malts were light, hay-like and papery. Hops were reminiscent of old herbs. Only a faint bitterness. Nip of white wine in the background. Not entirely undrinkable, but I still poured out half the bottle.
