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

ninecats (339) - Uddevalla, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle. Hazy brown reddish with a big beige foam leaving lots of lacings dissipating fairly quick. Aroma is smoke, charcuteries, wood, slight ash, malt and tiny floral hints deep down, lovely. Taste basically follows the nose, soft smoke, charcuteries, sweet malt, dried fruit and slight floral bitterness in the finish although no mistake the smokiness is dominating. Beautiful round tounge, velvet like, medium body, low carbo. Delicious!
