COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
„Volfas Engelman“ is a pride of interwar Lithuania, the best Lithuanian beer which received the highest evaluations in different exhibitions from Kaunas to Paris.

Tarpukario legenda Volfas Engelman su RINKTINIU alumi į šiandien sugrįžo it vėl kaip anuomet aktuali patapo. Tarpukario Kauno didžiausias bravoras šiuo vardu vadinamas buvo ir populiariausią anuomet Lietuvoje alų virė. Šviežias tada ir todėl šviežias dabar Volfas Engelman RINKTINIS tik iš tyro. specialaus paruošimo vandens kuriamas, prabangą jojo aromatiniai Perle ir Magnum apyniai bei išskirtinės alaus mielės atskleidžia, o lietuviškas Pilzeno tipo salyklas jį šviesia spalva apdovanoja. RINKTINIS - yra bravoro vėliavnešys, jis kaip ir kitos Volfas Engelman rūšys pilamas į pintos talpos butelius, NEPASTERIZUOTAS todėl ir namuose galima jį ragauti tokį pat kaip ir bare.

Zarkam (457) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2014
1 pint bottle from a supermarket in Kaunas, clear gold colour, small fizzy white mostly vanishing head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and straw with light grassy and peppery hops and a hint of butter. Taste is initally moderately sweet and acidic with some minerals turning into a lightly bitter finish. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A fairly ok lager with a bit too little bitterness.

ogivlado (5853) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 3, 2014
Canned 568ml. -from Iki supermarket Vilnius. Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, dusty nose. Dryish malty, grainy, slightly lactic and some sweet fruity notes in the finish. Not so pleasant, and I’m sure if Gurthnar tried this beer, one of his words is going to be vomit for sure...Cheers Peter;)))

Ogi’s, from Lithuania, pint can, thanks! Poured a golden body with a medium sized white head. Dry malty aroma, slightly sweetish perhaps. Empty, dry taste, some mild sweetish graininess perhaps, extremely, extremely light bitter note. Seriously? No off flavors, but, then again, pretty much no flavors at all. Yeah, I kinda dig the Volfas Engelman graphical/historical scheme. Too bad the beers aren’t nearly worth it.

Grzesiek79 (3292) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 4, 2014
No ten juz nieco wyrazisty jasny lager slodowy niezbyt slodki nawet podchmielony konkretnie. Piekaca nuta na jezyku oraz sliczna puszysta i sniezna piana, dosc trwala. Kolor zlocisty z babelkami, fajna pintowa buteleczka. Ogolnie piwo lekkie w sam raz na lednie upaly.

PawelD (229) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAY 13, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. W zapachu mokra szmata. Kolor złoty bardzo klarowny, obfita biała piana. W smaku lekka goryczka, wodnistość i taka lagerowa słodycz. Nasycenie bliskie zeru, piwo bardzo pijalne i dobre.
