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.

ogivlado (5703) - 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 (4584) - 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.

ClubGonzo (4021) - 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 (3932) - 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.

DanielBrown (3809) - 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.

rauchbier (3606) - 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.

zvikar (3381) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JUL 30, 2010
At the Grand Lager Tasting, thanks Naam, pours pale yellow with a nice head, aroma of cheese, marmalade, grass and some acids, flavor of malt with some sweetness and alcohol notes, light body.

Grzesiek79 (3199) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 4, 2014
No ten juz nieco wyrazisty jasny lager slodowy niezbyt slodki nawet podchmielony konkretnie. Piekaca nuta na jezyku oraz sliczna puszysta i sniezna piana, dosc trwala. Kolor zlocisty z babelkami, fajna pintowa buteleczka. Ogolnie piwo lekkie w sam raz na lednie upaly.
