The Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer is an unfiltered smokebeer, brewed according to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Bottom-fermenting yeast gives the reddish brown lentbeer a natural cloudiness. Its smokey aroma is already noticeable in the smell, combined with a fine hoppy note. In the drink the fullbodied, highly drinkable lentbeer shows its strong malty flavour, rounded up with the smokey taste and a light bitterness. Due to the nourishing yeast, the Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer has the "Brotzeit already included" (German word for afternoon snack). Served / Sold: - Only during lent from Ash Wednesday to Easter - Only from the wooden keg at the Schlenkerla Data: Original Gravity: 14.5% Alcohol: 5.5% EBU: 32

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Intensely smoked into, with lots of bacon and ham aroma. Less extreme on the tongue, but still very tasty. Highly drinkable without making sacrifices. Full-bodied and nourishing indeed!

Cunningham (6557) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2016
Clear deep nutty color with a fine thick off white head. Solid intensity in the aroma. Medium body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. If you do not like peated beer. Never drink this. It is a quite heavy peated flavor. It destroys most of the other flavors. Ham and bacon. Solid breakfast.
[Bottle from a trade with Nisse666]
