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.

TBone (12458) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2011
Can 1 pint (Maxima, BB 11/2011)
Clear golden color, small white head. Sweetish vegetablu, corn-like, a bit harsh aroma. Light to medium bodied. Light sweet malty, sweetcorn flavor. Unoffensive, clean but very bland typical Baltic bulk.

rosenbergh (6550) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2011
568 ml can. From Lithuania.
Clear pale golden colour with tiny white head. Sweet sugary Lagery aroma. Flavour ain’t bad. Quite typical Baltic Lager. Slightly sweeter than Nordic Lagers.

larsga (6140) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2010
Medium white head. Yellow body with carbonation. Mealy rubbery papery aroma. Dry mealy rubbery papery taste, lightly acidic. Mid-bodied. Mealy mouthfeel. Dry-acidic mealy papery aftertaste. Well. It sucks, but for such a shitty beer it’s surprisingly easy to drink. I got tired of it very quickly, though, and particularly don’t like the acidity. Had it three times, from draft, can, and bottle, and it was the same each time. (0.5l bottle from some grocery store, Vilnius.)

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 1, 2010
Can sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Clear pale golden. Weak aroma of hay, grains and light caramel hints. Weird sweetish flavor with a bit of strange fruitiness, a bit of honey and cereals. Light-bodied and a bit fizzy.

tomer (1645) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 31, 2010
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small but quite stable head, pale yellow colour, light aroma of lemon and cheese, light bitterness and a touch of fruity sweetness dissapearing quite quickly. Not terribly offensive, but not to good either.
