2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle, kindly donated by kevnic2008. Clear golden colour, mid-sized head. Malty, hints of ripe fruit and some hops in the finish with a woody touch. Not bad for the strength.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Lithuanica, Birmingham. Pours beautifully: orangeish with a big, foamy head. This is quite malty. It’s very sweet, with booming bread and some shredded wheat with a dry ’icey sheet’ finish. Distinctly Helles-like. I don’t exactly love this, but do think it’s quite well put together.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle (Iki, Vilnius)
RIch orage, large white head. Typical baltic pale lager aroma, just some light breadiness. Watery palate, a bit fizzy. More of an English pissy lager taste than a baltic pissy lager taste. Definitely has some malts in it. Some odd slightly asrtingent bitterness, with no depth. Fairly clean, and not unpleasant. Probably one of the better Volfas Engelmans.
