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

Underdogs88 (325) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Complex strong smoke aroma. Appearance is a cloudy brown with a nice sized head and good lacing. Flavor has complex, smooth smoke character with notes of toast and some malty sweetness. Mouthfeel medium light with medium carbonation. Overall, this a great session smoke beer. The smoke character is strong, but really smooth. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
