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.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2015
58.6 cl can @ Sankt Hans Tasting, Ulfborg.
Aroma has starchy notes, cardboard and corn. Flavour has mild grassy tones, menthol, some starch, corn and mild cardboard notes. Dry finish. Your typical bulk lager.

downender (6954) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2015
UKIP friendly one pint can from an Eastern European grocers in Bedminster, Bristol. Clear and bright gold in colour, with a big, but short-lived white head and touch of fizziness. Light, slightly sweet aroma of cereal malts, lemon and a hint of honey, with a touch of grassy hop. Flavour was similar, with some grassy notes and ripe corn, before a moderately bitter finish. A very enjoyable lager.

larsga (6684) - 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.)

ogivlado (6341) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 3, 2014
Canned 568ml. -from Iki supermarket Vilnius. Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, dusty nose. Dryish malty, grainy, slightly lactic and some sweet fruity notes in the finish. Not so pleasant, and I’m sure if Gurthnar tried this beer, one of his words is going to be vomit for sure...Cheers Peter;)))

mjs (5312) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 24, 2008
(Bottled on 2008-06-20) Pale yellow and clear. Big white bubbly head. Hints of malts and hops in nose. Some carbonation in medium palate that turns dry. Hops, fruitiness and sweetness in taste. Nothing special.

Beer5000 (5052) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
568 ml bottle. Clear pale golden body with a small white head. Weak aroma of grain, more than less just like a weak version of any mass produced industrial lager. Not much favor either, corn with some light harsh bitterness. Thin and watery body almost no aftertaste. Very boring and close to unpleasant.

ClubGonzo (4722) - 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

Marko (4301) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 28, 2014
Ogi’s, from Lithuania, pint can, thanks! Poured a golden body with a medium sized white head. Dry malty aroma, slightly sweetish perhaps. Empty, dry taste, some mild sweetish graininess perhaps, extremely, extremely light bitter note. Seriously? No off flavors, but, then again, pretty much no flavors at all. Yeah, I kinda dig the Volfas Engelman graphical/historical scheme. Too bad the beers aren’t nearly worth it.
