„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.

rosenbergh (10707) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2011
568 ml can. From Lithuania.
Clear pale golden colour with tiny white head. Sweet sugary Lagery aroma. Flavour ain’t bad. Quite typical Baltic Lager. Slightly sweeter than Nordic Lagers.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2014
1 pint bottle from a supermarket in Kaunas, clear gold colour, small fizzy white mostly vanishing head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and straw with light grassy and peppery hops and a hint of butter. Taste is initally moderately sweet and acidic with some minerals turning into a lightly bitter finish. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A fairly ok lager with a bit too little bitterness.

Can from the Polish Delicatessen, opposite The Barum Top Inn, Halifax. Yellow-blonde lager with a carbonation and small head. Slightly dry tasting with an ordinary lager sweetness to it.

omhper (23731) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2009
Bottled, boughtin Vilnius. Clear golden, rich airy head. Sweet and fruity with light soapy grassy hops. Light-medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel,. Mainly fruity and without sense of direction. Low bitterness. For a beer that appears to try to sell through marketing ploys it’s not too shabby.

larsga (7316) - 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.)
