COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Als „Kräusen“ beschreibt der Bierbrauer die vielen Schaumblasen, die sich während der Gärung des Jungbieres bilden. Die Zugabe von einer kleinen Menge solchen Jungbieres zu einem bereits ausgereiften Bier wird als „Aufkräusen“ bezeichnet. Durch das Aufkräusen wird die volle Geschmacksreife des gelagerten Bieres um die Spritzigkeit des Jungbieres ergänzt.

Aecht Schlenkerla Kräusen ist ein bernsteinfarbenes, unfiltriertes Lagerbier mit leichtem Rauchgeschmack. Es reift in den tiefen Stollen unter dem Bamberger Stephansberg und wird kurz vor dem Ausschank mit klassischem Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier aufgekräust. Süffig und mit nicht zu viel Alkohol ist es die ideale Erfrischung für die warme Jahreszeit.

Daten:
Stammwürze 11,7%
Alkohol 4,5%
Bittere 30

Ausschank:
Im Brauereiausschank vom Holzfass ab 1. Juni bis Ende August. Export in die USA.

English Translation:
"Kräusen" describes the bubbles that form during the fermentation of green (young) beer. The addition of a small amount of such green beer to an already mature beer is called "Kräusening". Kräusening adds the full flavor maturity of the stored beer to the liveliness of the green beer that is added.

Schlenkerla Kräusen is an amber, unfiltered lager with a slight smoky taste. It ripens in the deep tunnels under Bamberg until just before adding the classic Schlenkerla smoked beer. Tasty and not too much alcohol, it is the perfect refreshment for a warm season.
Data:
Original gravity 11.7%
Alcohol 4.5%
Bitter 30

Serving:
In the brewery from the keg from 1 June to late August. Exports to the United States.

2013-08-08, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Pours a hazy amber color with compact head. The aroma presents caramel and mild smoke. It has good malt and caramel flavor, round mouthfeel, with evident smoke; strong bitterness.
It’s a very good, solid brew.

2011-06-10, draught at Ølbaren, Copenhagen, 8-5-7-3-15=38
Hazy copper color; medium sized creamy head; beautiful lace. The aroma is mild, with an interesting combination of bread and Schinken, hence the delicate smoke; it’s really harmonious. It has a very good body structure for this gravity, and the mouthfeel tends to be round; there is some malt flavor, but it doest take off; pleasant, subtle presence of smoked malt, and light bread trace; correct bitterness, but the final tends to be boring
I expected more from Schlenkerla.
