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.

Nice Golden color on teh pur, thin off white head, huge Saaz hop boquet. Nice crisp fresh hop flavor. Thin mouth feel but about right for the style, a touch of malt in the finish. This beer doesn’t deserve the low rating it has on it, it’s much better than what it appears. Great session beer.

rampmaster (642) - Alden, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Presentation: It was poured from a brown bottle into a pint glass. It has a average size white, foamy head. It doesn’t make much lace on the glass and fades to just a thin cap covering a golden colored body with good clarity and visible carbonation. The aroma has a pleasant floral and grassy hop character with a very nice mild malt note. It is crisp up front. Malt flavor is earthy and biscuity with a very mild sweetness that mixes with grassy and floral hops. The hops fade into the dry finish with nice mellow bitterness from the hops. Its body is light with a wet and fizzy texture from the carbonation. Overall it had a nice clean flavor and aroma with an easy drinking body and texture.

Pours gold with a fizzy head. Smells of apples, some pepper, hints of citrus. Tastes of sweet caramel, malt, some dough, hints of pepper. Finish is moderately bitter. Surprisingly full bodied.

lcdumchus (19) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Good pour. Nice golden color with a crisp, mild hop flavor, maybe a hint of lemon. Better than most Eastern European beers. Make sure it’s fresh when purchased, as many ratings complain of skunkiness. Not spectacular, but a good session beer.

Onslow (1098) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Slightly cloudy lager with frothy head. Nice aroma of light malts and spicey hops. Taste is light malts followed by a refreshing though light bitter hoppiness. Well balanced and refined, a very pleasant and enjoyable brew.
