COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kalnapilis Pilsner, created using the old, traditional Pilsner recipes, has a mild and pleasant flavour. A glass of pale, light Kalnapilis Pilsner is a true classic. On any occasion.

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2009
500ml bottle (Maxima, Vilnius)
Mid gold, small white head. Papery and grainy lager aroma - very Baltic macro. Pleasant level of carbonation, refreshing smooth palate. Fairly bland lagery taste, a light breadiness, and some hint at hops. A touch flowery. Quenches a thirst, and very easy to drink.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 12, 2008
28-Apr-08 (500-ml bottle, Best by 19-Aug-08: Free sample bottle for stewarding the 2008 World Beer Cup in San Diego, CA) Being a World Beer Cup entry, this should be a reasonably fresh bottle that hasn’t been grossly abused. A moderately spicy hop character provides a balanced entry, but the hop flavors subside a bit in the evolution, allowing the grainy, bready and somewhat corny malt to dominate the finish. However, after a few more sips, the flavor and bitterness of the hops are able to persist on the palate, masking the poor quality of the malt base, so this ends up being a bit more enjoyable. The sweet, corny, grainy malts are easily the most prominent aromas, and the lightly hoppy aromas are pleasant, but there’s a bit of cheesiness and cat pee in the background too. Body is light, but gentle hop bitterness and moderate carbonation make for a lively palate. The beer pours a perfectly clear, medium-golden color with a quarter-inch white head that dissipates rapidly. With the funky aroma and cheap-tasting malt backing, this by no means is a good pilsener, but it is a reasonably refreshing lager with some actual hop character.
