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.

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.

Flaska. Snygg guldfärgad öl med livligt vitt skum. Trevliga och rätt intensiva dofter av majs, lime och ljust bröd, smakar inte fullt lika mycket och gott som där fanns förhoppningar om, men lime, majs och sött godis gör ändĺ detta till ett helt okey öl.

bottle, courtesy of kevnic2008. Clear golden colour, mid-sized head. Grainy malty base, hints of fruit, shy hoppy finish.

halapablo (78) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 28, 2013
butelka 0,5l.. Niezłe piwko, kolor trochę lurowaty jasnożółty, mało piany, na początku spoko ale zostawia trochę niefajny posmak. Piję przeterminowane więc można spróbować jeszcze raz

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Canned 24/11/12. A fairly anaemic blonde lager with a little whitish head. A sweetish lager with some butter and puke on the nose. Some corn in the mouth but it doesn’t taste too bad and is actually fairly palateable. A touch of fruit. Not bad.

suurjuust (1031) - ESTONIA - NOV 24, 2013
Clear gold, big fluffy white head. Aroma is grains, some citric tones, some grassy hops. Taste is light sweetness, light bitterness. Hops in the finish. Lively carbonation, thin body, thin to oily mouthfeel. Pretty forgettable, but not exactly bad.

yngwie (13463) - 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

(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.

KM (329) - Tromsř, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
Tap. (Not 100% sure this is the right Valfas Engelman beer that i tasted, but I believe it is close enough). Light malty aroma, bitter hops. Bitter and light flavour. Light sweetness in the finish. A tad of citrus. (Heineken Bar, Vilnius Airport, 30.08.2011)
