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

Xavalias (280) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2015
On tap at lbaren. Cloudy dark amber with a medium beige head. Heavy smell of smoked bacon already from a distance. Aroma likewise, like a heavy fatty dish of smoked ham, smoked sausages slow-cooked in beans. The taste is dry, slightly hoppy once the smoke subsides. The palate is greasy. Long smoked aftertaste. Full bodied, filling, a perfect replacement of a heavy sauerkraut on a fasting day. Unfortunately it does not really make it drinkable. Interesting and very well dona and balanced nonetheless.

GlasgowTAD (1501) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Pours an dark ruby red with an brown eggshell head. Aroma is dominated by cured meat, bacon and other smoked foods of a similar nature. Taste is smokey, slight hop bitterness and a sweetishly pleasing finish.

Pailhead (6529) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle: The aroma is heavy smoked ham and bacon...and its awesome! Maybe there is some faint caramel there too, but the smoked meat absolutely dominates. It pours a dark mostly transparent brownish-orange with a two finger beige head that fades to a thick film. There is a good amount of soapy webbing and rings left of the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light-moderate caramel and maple. The finish has moderate smoked maple glazed ham, light bacon, and very faint campfire. Its medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this is the best Smoked beer Ive ever had.

Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin mahinginruskeana ja kirkkaana, muhkealla kolmen sormen paksuisella vaahdolla. Tuoksussa vahvimpana on Schlenkerlan tuttua savukinkkua, jonka lisn on yrttinen mausteisuus ja pureskeltava viljaisuus. Jopa liev mentholmaisuutta on havaittavissa. Maussa on mys savukinkkua, muttei niin vahvana kuin tuoksussa. Raikas hedelminen ja yrttinen humalointi tuo selv raikkautta, pureskeltava viljaisuus taas parantaa juotavuutta entisestn. Suutuntuma on suht napakasti humaloitu, mutta savuisuudesta huolimatta hieman turhan kevyt. Ei kuitenkaan vetinen missn nimess. Vaikken tyylist pidkn niin kovin, niin tm on kyll todella hyv olut. Savuoluiden aatelia.

Bottle shared with All my vinyl thanks to Ash. For the purpose of introducing the uninitiated to smoky bacon like brews this is clearly as pronounced as you can get without potentially putting them off for life. Looks good; dark dark amber with a good head. Smoky malty aromas, smoky malty brown sugar rounded sweetness. Easy drinking. Arguably one of the most balanced smoked beers out there - not too little ( only in name smokiness, as in many gimmick beers) , and not too much. They got it spot-on with this one. A 4d smoked beer. Totally Gallus !
