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

bjorn77 (1018) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 16, 2018
Aromat: świetnie wędzone klimaty, wpierw ognisko, później wchodzi szynka a na koniec wędzone i suszone owoce, głownie śliwki. Spod wędzonki wychodzi lekko baza sodowa, delikatnie zbożowa. Wygląd: czerwona miedź, śliczna, wysoka, kremowa piana, utrzymująca się długo. Smak: zbożowa baza, trochę karmelu, dużo wędzonki, wędzone śliwki, ognisko, szynka, całkiem spora goryczka kontrująca karmelek i wędzonkę. Odczucie: średnie ciało, wysycenie niezbyt wysokie, finisz gorzkawy, ziołowy. Całość: bardzo dobrze wędzone, smaczne piwo, wędzonka nie jest aż tak przytłaczająca, karmelek też nie męczy, fajna goryczka, dobre piwonie aż tak ekstremalne jak myślałem. 8/4/7/4/15

tricksta_p (5698) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2018
Bottle from Die Bierothek, Bamberg. Aroma is nicely smokey with smoked ham, campfire, malt, ash, caramel, and damp wood. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium. Classic Schlenkerla.

What is so much more noticable about this beer and why its better then the others is that the unsmoky flavours come through well and are complemented by the smoke. Some nice dry hopes comes through with low carbonation and some sweetness. Its lovely. Best of the bunch

YantarCoast (1765) - Moscow, RUSSIA - APR 4, 2018
280ml on tap at Chinaski Lavapies in Madrid. Pours slightly hazy amber with a thick off-white head. Aroma is smoked wood, peat, grilled sausages. Taste is sweet malt, smoke, rye bread, light bitterness.

GoDarkOrGoHome (114) - WALES - APR 2, 2018
Smoked sausage aroma which is very strong and made me wonder if I'd be able to stomach this beer. However, the flavours add a sweetness and bitterness which compliment the smoky flavour, making this a very enjoyable beer.

bedzinianin06 (676) - - MAR 29, 2018
Dobra, obfita piana + lacing. Barwa piwa - ciemno-miedziana. W aromacie umiarkowana wędzonka, taka w klimacie szynki. Poza tym aromat słodkawy, słodowy. W smaku jest bardzo "syto". Tutaj wędzonka jest mocniejsza, daje trochę efekt popiołowatości. Poza tym dość wyraźne akcenty słodowe. Goryczka wyraźna, średnia. Podsumowanie: Ciekawe, że więcej wędzonki jest w smaku, niż w aromacie. Piwo ciekawe, syte. Jest w nim tez coś postnego :)
