COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Schlenkerla Helles” is brewed with fine Bavarian aroma hops from the area around the city of Nürnberg. It’s lagered in century old caves underneath the historic Schlenkerla brewery and maltings. Schlenkerla Helles is boiled in the same copper kettles and bottom fermented by the same yeast as the historic Schlenkerla Smokebeer. Its subtle smokiness without using smoke malt makes “Helles Schlenkerla Lager” a unique representative of the classic lager beer style “Bavarian Helles”. Editor’s note: Since this is not intended as a smoked beer, and is not billed as such, it has been classed here as a Helles, despite some samples having residual smoke character.

From bottle in footed pilsner. Pours slightly hazy golden with fluffy white head and aroma of smoked ham. Taste is interesting as the smoke gives way to malt sweetness. Good body and carbonation with a smooth finish

Aromat: z butelki początkowo subtelne nic, dopiero potem wyłania się przyjemna, dosyć łagodna szynkowa wędzonka, pod spodem wyczuwalna słodowość, ze szkła bardziej słodowo i wyraźnie lagerowo, w tle wędzoność i lekka ziołowość i żelazo Wygląd: barwa złota, klarowne, piana biała, drobnopęcherzykowa, trwała, zostawia ładny lacing Smak: wyraźnie wędzone, dalej typowo lagerowo, dużo słodu z delikatna słodyczą, skontrowaną średnią goryczką, która lekko zalega Podniebienie: wysokie nagazowanie, średnia pełnia, średnia pijalność (przez dużą ilość bąbelków) Podsumowanie: dobry lager z przyjemnym wędzonym akcentem, tak w skrócie

@VandB 2.20€ - ça c'est une bière dont on se rappelle, qui a une identité. Goût fumé très particulier et inhabituel pour une Lager. Un peu spécial et déroutant.

Pint bottle. Nice sour wheat grass and malt smells. Pours a bubbling gold with a massive white head. Tons of lacing. Tastes of citrus with floral notes and a solid sour finish with above average carbonation. Super drinkable and very good.

Nische (2736) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2017
Bottle from SinH4. Many thanks! Pale orange with a white head. Aroma is dominated by smoked malt, toasted bread, some burnt hay. Taste is less so, more like a grassy helles beside a campfire.
