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.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Poura mostly ear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Very simple aroma of ceral, dry dough and hay. Medium sweet flavor with further cereal grains, faint hay bitterness, doughy sugars. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with cereal, toasted corn and grains, very subtle bitter hay, semi-dry dough. Super drinkable lager.

boxofrane (2047) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Can. Pours clear yellow with a small white head, heavy carboination. Mass produced lager staple. Smells of cornstarch, some funky moldy scent. Taste is a light euro lager. This is not bad but not worth seeking out.

Light haze on this gold beer, decent white head. Palate is softish but with a good carbonated bite. Sweet pale malt, slight wheat character. Decent, for the style, citric hops provide balance. Finishes soft and lagerish.

Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
1 pint can bought from a shop in Felixstowe. Pale yellow with a white head, quite thin, moderate carbonation, hay and grass apparent. OK but not great.

Sigmundflower (8) - - JUN 29, 2013 does not count
Classica bionda rinfrescante. Colore vivo e schiuma densa e persistente. Giusto spunto di luppolo al palato e in retrogusto.

ectuohy27 (543) - ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2013
Astringent, chalky/lemony barley water, basically. Unremarkable but for the Alka-Seltzer carbonation profile and taste. Not to be tried again

ralphdot (982) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2013
5.2% pale gold colour with a thin head, malt aroma, slightly sweet fizzy malt taste.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2013
Can. Straw yellow body, short-lived white head. Nose is pale malts, metallic grassy notes and hints of wet paper. Taste is sweet pale malts, maize and some faint grass tones. Metallic aftertaste. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Yuck. The most pleasing thing about this beer must be the elaborate aluminum foil wrapped around the top of the can, which is kind of a nice (albeit horribly kitschy) touch. :-P

Quack-Duck (7728) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 19, 2012
bottle, courtesy of kevnic2008. Clear golden colour, mid-sized head. Grainy malty base, hints of fruit, shy hoppy finish.

mzaar (1508) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2012
Flaska. Snygg guldfärgad öl med livligt vitt skum. Trevliga och rätt intensiva dofter av majs, lime och ljust bröd, smakar inte fullt lika mycket och gott som där fanns förhoppningar om, men lime, majs och sött godis gör ändå detta till ett helt okey öl.
