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.

omhper (19950) - 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.

Light haze on this gold beer, decent white head. Palate is softish but with a good carbonated bite. Sweet pale malt, slight wheat character. Decent, for the style, citric hops provide balance. Finishes soft and lagerish.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 4, 2013
Bottle, 1pt. It’s a clear, golden beer topped by a white head of two-finger size. The aroma is quite buttery, with peaches, yellow apples and grainy malts. Some hints of pepper and grass. It’s almost oily on the palate, full-bodied and with a soft carbonation. It’s not equally buttery in the flavor, but a bit too sweet for my likings. Fruits, some pepper and grains and a faint bitterness too. Sweet, fruity finish with some bitterness. Quite pleasant if you don’t spent much time smelling it. 131204

Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Poura mostly ear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Very simple aroma of ceral, dry dough and hay. Medium sweet flavor with further cereal grains, faint hay bitterness, doughy sugars. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with cereal, toasted corn and grains, very subtle bitter hay, semi-dry dough. Super drinkable lager.
