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.

DanielBrown (3717) - 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 (8598) - 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 (9998) - 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 (327) - Tromsř, 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)

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2012
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.

vipinvelp (2070) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2012
Very light yellow color, almost too clear. Flat taste with small taste of malts, Öl for bitterness. Served as special but isn't. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
