2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Lithuanica, Birmingham. This is most certainly a game of two halves. Smells like a bald tennis ball. Upon swigging however, that early unpromise fades away to reveal a minerally, well constructed lager which hints at Germanic-ness. So far so good, but then it blemishes itself with a finish of rabid formica and Co-Op shelving during a stock check. I sort of like it.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canned 24/11/12. A fairly anaemic blonde lager with a little whitish head. A sweetish lager with some butter and puke on the nose. Some corn in the mouth but it doesn’t taste too bad and is actually fairly palateable. A touch of fruit. Not bad.

Tap. (Not 100% sure this is the right Valfas Engelman beer that i tasted, but I believe it is close enough). Light malty aroma, bitter hops. Bitter and light flavour. Light sweetness in the finish. A tad of citrus. (Heineken Bar, Vilnius Airport, 30.08.2011)

Bottle, from an ethnic foodstore in Scunthorpe. Pale gold, thin shortlived white head and low condition. Gentle fruity sweet maltiness and low mineral hop notes in the nose, full bodied and mouthfilling in the mouth with a solid chalky grain note balanced by an insistent hoppiness, finish is clean and fruity wih a slightly honeyed hop note.
