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.

Classica bionda rinfrescante. Colore vivo e schiuma densa e persistente. Giusto spunto di luppolo al palato e in retrogusto.

koshack (984) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Złote, klarowne. Piana drobna, obfita, kremowa. Aromat słodowy z delikatną nutą chmielu. Piana bardzo trwała, ładnie koronkuje. W smaku słodowe, ale z wyraźnym chmielem. Trochę kwaskowate odczucie. W drugiej nucie trochę zboża i lekka szmata.

DraftDodger (725) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2015
Vilnius 4/10 2015. 56,8 cl can from local market (the lithuanians are very concerned about serving a full pint). Boasty can mentioning all kinds of beer competitions that this brew has win. Pours clear yellow with white head. Disappears after a couple of minutes. Aroma is neutral. Some sweet malts - not much else. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Taste is dominated by malty sweetness - like most Lithuanian beer - a little skunky. Not much to boast about here to be honest.
