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

Saeglopur (2578) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 14, 2018
Score: 8 / 4 / 8 / 4 / 17

Draught at Schlenkerla, Bamberg.
Brown, hazy body, with a big, creamy, lacing, beige head.
Aroma of smoke, dark bread, toffee, toast, cocoa, some dark fruits.
Tastes similar, with some more grains.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes smokey, a bit dry, wooden, toasty, grainy, subtly sweet, with cocoa, slight toffee.

Very tasty. Incredibly smooth and perfectly balanced, with a lot of depth, but very quaffable at the same time. Although I'm not the biggest smoke beer fan usually, this is just lovely, I could drink loads of this.

Iznogud (5078) - CROATIA - MAR 12, 2018

Flaska från SB. Brunaktig vätska med kaffegräddfärgat skum. Rökig doft. Smaken är brödig något rökig.

midovark (1263) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 9, 2018
0.5 l bottle from Csakajó. Pours deep copper with thick, dense off-white head. Nose is intense smoke and basement aromas. In taste there's some sweetness to the smoke too, but the latter's the main attraction in it too. Light bodied, somewhat too light to my liking, and it's a bit one-dimensional, but otherwise I love it hard.

VsXsV (4622) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2018
Bottle. Deep brown liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of smoke, bacon, grain, bread, light caramel and light earth. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of earthy hops, bacon, grain and light caramel. Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Great stuff.

jrh2254 (237) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2018
From a beer hawk mystery case. Pours very dark brown. Aroma of smoked German sausage Taste of sweet smoked German sausage , chorizo, malt and light bitterness. A little sweet for my palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marko (6519) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 28, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2018 Bottle at Craft Room. Hazy ruby body, off white-tan head, creamy. Lovely aroma, well integrated smoke vs. clean candyish maltiness, lightly nutty. Soft, soft taste, dry, carbonated just right. Mild smoke, nutty notes, vague sweetness, bitterish finish to balance it out. Superbly drinkable.
