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.

larsga (6206) - 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 (5782) - 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.

At a tasting: a bit lemony, cheese water(wtf?), sweetish, watery, really gross.

tomer (1697) - 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.

Russo (1685) - Campinas, BRAZIL - DEC 31, 2009
Bought at Rimi Market in Vilnius. Pale yellow color that start with a nice white head but gone fast. Aroma is weak, some malt notes. Flavor is a little bit bitter with malt and something else. I couldn’t define it. Mouthfeel is kind of malty, sweet only. At least a cheap beer. :)

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2009
Bottled, boughtin Vilnius. Clear golden, rich airy head. Sweet and fruity with light soapy grassy hops. Light-medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel,. Mainly fruity and without sense of direction. Low bitterness. For a beer that appears to try to sell through marketing ploys it’s not too shabby.

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 14, 2009
500ml bottle (Lithuania)
Pale fizzy gold, reasonable sudsy head. Citrussy lager aroma. Plasticky and a bit rancid malt/hops combination. More flavour than the average lager, but not one I like. Grassy finish.
