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

Grzesiek79 (4094) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 17, 2016
Opened today when Wiesn (Oktoberfest) Started. Coz za zapach, wedzonego i spalonego drewna, sliwka wegierka, gruszka wedzona, jablko z ogniska. Kolor metny brazowo czerwony, fantastyczna metnosc i ta bezowa spora piana, ktora stoji niewzruszona caly czas. Smak poteznie wedzony, lekko slodowy, wedzony ser, szynka serrano lub inna regionalna, a do tego goryczka w gardle zalepiajaca i zalegajaca bardzo dlugo. Kunszt i klasa Rauchbier, nie dziwi tak wysoka ocena. Lovely Smoked Beer.

alexmate (91) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Appearance: dark Guinness-style colour with a big dirty white head. Nose: caramel, smoky bacon, roasted malt, wood chips and some sort of metallic smell. Taste: Smoky bacon at the start, some red fruits similar to a red wine, brown sugar, charcoal and roasted malts. Finishes slightly sweet with light bitterness. An interesting and complex beer. Price Paid: 2.10.

ljthiessen (1175) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle. Murky amber-brown pour with a thick, pillowy off-white head. Both aroma and taste are fairly smokey, but nicely integrated and balanced with the rest of the beer. Fairly rich for the ABV, malty but also complex and delicious. Really tasty and surprisingly drinkable for a smoked beer - wish I could get this more often.

downender (8039) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2016
On tap at the Hereford Beer House, June, 2016. Deep amber in colour, with a faint haze and decent, frothy, beige head. Smoked wood chips, slightly fatty bacon, sweetish red berries and a touch of leafy hop, before a full finish with accompanying smoke. A great beer.

onceblind (7895) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Deep hazy amberish brown under a rocky and sticky light tan head. Mild aroma thats a little smokey, a little meaty, a little toasty and something kinda semisweet, like date fruit. Smooth and balanced flavors thats slightly smokey, somewhat toast-y, bready, gently sweet and medium flavored. Quaffable, clean, balanced and not overbearing for a smoked. Just kinda even tempered.
