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.

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

ClubGonzo (4175) - 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 (8048) - 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 (1701) - 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.

DanielBrown (3897) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
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.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
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.

Koelschtrinker (10963) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - NOV 27, 2012
Runder, erdig herber Beginn. Das Bier bleibt herb und wird im Mittelteil trockener, süffig, hinter der Herbe süßlich. Süffiges, gut trinkbares Lager. 8/8/10/8/9/8

KM (346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
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)
