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

imperial_suchy (123) - Rybnik, POLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Barwa- ciemny bursztyn, obfita drobnopęcherzykowa piana. W aromacie wędzonka, gdzieś tam się przebija nieśmiało karmel. W smaku rwnież intensywna wędzonka, karmelowa słodycz, ziołowa goryczka, delikatna rodzynka. Jest dobrze, ale nie jest to dla mnie najlepsza pozycja z tego browaru.

SonOfAnarchy (313) - ST HELENA - FEB 17, 2017
Tap. Clear very dark ruby in the glass with a thick frothy beige head. Aroma of pretty intense smoked ham and slight caramel maltiness. Taste is semi-sweet, with low bitterness; flavors of intense smokiness, notes of ash and dust, malt. Smokey and a surprisingly astringent finish. Full bodied, slick texture, medium to low carbonation.

MikeBeermaster (598) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
On tap. Aroma of smoked meat - especially ham and some caramel maltiness. Clear ruby in the glass with thick beige head. Taste of literally burned maltiness, some ashy, dusty notes. Bit of caramel in the background with gentle smokiness. Roasty astringent finish. Very drinkable as Rauchbier, but not the best from Schlenkerla.

pawos (42) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Kolor ciemnobursztynowy, piwo jest nieprzejrzyste; całkiem ładna piana. W aromacie dominuje oczywiście wędzonka - przede wszystkim kojarząca się z wędzonymi serami. Dalej trochę karmelu i jasnych słodw. W smaku raczej podobnie. Mocna, przyjemna wędzonka serowo-szynkowa. Piwo jest zdecydowanie pełne, słodkie, czuć troche chleba i karmelu. Pije się powoli ale przyjemnie. Goryczka niska.

Manslow (1343) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Butelka 500mll. pite w domu. Kolor brązowy, klarowny, piana drobnopęcherzykowa jasnobeżowa dobrze trzyma się szkła. Aromat wędzonki dość intensywny, suszone śliwki palone słody, w smaku to samo. Goryczka mocna zalegająca, wysycenie średnie. Piwo o potężnym smaku i aromacie, bardzo dobry rauchbier. Bamberg wymiata.

melman1996 (77) - - FEB 15, 2017
Pours deep amber with thick head. Aroma: oscypek, smoked ham, campfire, caramel, bread (I am not sure about that) and more oscypek. Taste: smoky bitterness at first, caramely sweetness. Medium body, a little bit creamy texture, average/soft carbonation, short bitter finish, aftertaste of oscypek and ham. I would say its a textbook rauchbier. Nothing eccentric, just good.

Bottle. Bought Dec 2016; BBE Dec 2016; Drank Dec 2016 - Aroma of Smokey Bacon. Cloudy Reddish Brown in colour. Large creamy off-white head. Excellent lacing. Very Malty; smoked malts, ham, roasty, bready, oak, caramel, ashy notes. Yeasty; sedimented. Hoppy; moderately hopped; light hop bitterness. Well balanced. Sweet very smokey roast malty throughout. Semi-dry and mildly bitter in the finish. Very drinkable. Wow! Enjoyed this a lot. Terrific Smokebeer! (2016-12-31)

dfearnley (1917) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle to stange Consummation: Smoked malt, loads of bitterness, bread, yeast, middling sweetness Adjunct: Aroma is almost completely smoky. That is, smoked malt, bacon, and smoked gouda; fairly clear amber with lots of tiny particulates that look like little smoke clouds along with a thick, creamy, light tan head with good retention and lots of lacing.

Bottle. Loads of bacon on the nose. Pours dark brown and cloudy with a thick cream head. Really bacon to taste and really good.
