COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

DonGregorio (214) - POLAND - MAR 26, 2017
Bottle. Unclear dark red colour, rocky tan head, good lacing. Intense aroma of smoke, bacon, ham, wood, caramel. Taste is medium- sweet and medium bitter: caramel, bread malt base, intense smoke, bacon, roasty bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, thin texture. Has very intense, rich smoke in aroma and taste, but also slightly too high bitterness and too thin texture. Very good beer, but not my favourite from Heller.

jaghana (5833) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 22, 2017
Happy to have this one on bottle as it was previously only on tap at the brewery, so 50cl bottle @Kehl. A cark amber beer with low head, nose is already intense on smoked notes, caramel, wood, vegetable touch. Aroma is intense on smoked notes, caramel, vegetables, typically on the german side, like a smoked porter, but less complex than expected especially compared to the eche one. Anyway a very good one.

Wędzonka fest , trochę karmelu i tye . Zdecydowanie brakuje pełni .Całość jest zdominowane przez drzewną wędzonkę. Jakby ktoś do mocno posłodzonej i przestudzonej herbaty włożył kijek opalany w mrowisku i dolał rumu .

LordBrew (243) - Ziemnice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
Piwo ciemno rubinowe, bardzo klarowne, piana raczej słaba, szkła nie zdobi. Aromat - ekstremalne aromaty ogniskowe i wędzarniane, lekko popiołowy. Smak - bez zaskoczenia - ekstremalnie wędzony, ogniskowy, szynkowy, stosunkowo słodki. Zaskakująco wyczuwalna, ziołowa goryczka. Sporo ciała, wysycenie w normie. Posmak długi, wędzony, popiołowy, lekko karmelowy. Wędzona doskonałość.

mgajdaczewa (1941) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
W aromacie spora wędzonka, typowy styl schlenkerli, czyli wpierw ognisko, potem szynka. Śliwka. Nieco chmielu. W smaku jest rżnica głwnie jeśli chodzi o goryczke, Jest tu wysoka jak na styl, walczy z wędzonką. Po czasie pijalność spada. Niemniej jednak piwo udane.

Bottle from systembolaget. Maybe Im a pleb, but I didnt see too much different with the Marzen. It still had that serious heaviness so again, not a great post dinner choice, but then I cant think of a perfect moment for this beer really. Heavy malts, huge smoke profile but doesnt linger Is The mouth which is nice. Of course a very decent beer.

KW92 (1426) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 16, 2017

Butelka z datą: 11/2017
AROMAT: Bardzo intensywny. Krluje wędzonka (mocno uwędzona szynka).
SMAK: Słodowe z przyjemną wędzonością w posmaku. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, krtka.
WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemnobursztynowa przechodząca w miedzianą, klarowne. Pian średniej wysokości, drobna.
OGLNIE: Urzekająca wręcz dymioność tego piwa sprawia, że na pewno kiedyś do niego wrcę. Klasa!
