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.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2011
Can 1 pint (Maxima, BB 11/2011)
Clear golden color, small white head. Sweetish vegetablu, corn-like, a bit harsh aroma. Light to medium bodied. Light sweet malty, sweetcorn flavor. Unoffensive, clean but very bland typical Baltic bulk.

ectuohy27 (577) - ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2013
Astringent, chalky/lemony barley water, basically. Unremarkable but for the Alka-Seltzer carbonation profile and taste. Not to be tried again

FatPhil (9288) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 14, 2009
500ml bottle (Lithuania)
Pale fizzy gold, reasonable sudsy head. Citrussy lager aroma. Plasticky and a bit rancid malt/hops combination. More flavour than the average lager, but not one I like. Grassy finish.

Bottle is same like A.LeCoq special. Golden color. Beer is so uninteresting, without taste. Only nice bottle.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 1, 2010
Can sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Clear pale golden. Weak aroma of hay, grains and light caramel hints. Weird sweetish flavor with a bit of strange fruitiness, a bit of honey and cereals. Light-bodied and a bit fizzy.

Marko (3918) - 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.

At a tasting: a bit lemony, cheese water(wtf?), sweetish, watery, really gross.
