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

Marko (6523) - 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.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2018 Bottle from SinH4 during Euro Secret Santa 2017:: Many thanks >> Cette Fastenbier reste la plus équilibrée de celle déjà testées. Le caramel, les arômes fumés, les houblons et la carbonations sont tout en équilibre. La bouche ronde livre un texture crémeuse un peu épaisse caramélisée mais pas trop envahissante. Les saveurs légèrement fumées sont tout aussi discret et apportent en plus une petite touche d'acidité. L'amertume moyenne livre une sensation légèrement astringente qui pince les papilles: c'est savoureux, doux et à la fois un peu abrupt au palais, mais court.

FunkyF (1492) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2018
Flaska beställd från SB. Kopparfärgad med smutsvitt skum. Doft av sött rökt kött. Brända smaker med rejäl rökighet.

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2018 02-03-18 // 500ml bottle from the breweries online shop. 2018 version. Sweet smokey malty body, some ham along caramel notes. Very smooth, great balance. Great.

bulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 30, 2017
Rating #2761 - 2016.08.12 - Bottle from CBI. Pours a coppery brown in colour with a minimal tan head that fades quickly. Distinct smoky aroma (cedar plank salmon, ham roast) from this pour. Lik. Very unique body, mild alcohol warmth, predominant smokiness on the palate tempered with some lovely toffee sweet notes. Stellar.

ametras (1880) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 500ml bottle. Almost clear copper with a foamy white beige head. Flavors are charred wood, smoked meat and caramel with fruity and woodsy notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, oily texture.

rob19a (623) - - DEC 20, 2017
8/20 heavily smoked that's not as drinkable as the marzen version, this has a slight sourness beneath the smoked flavour.

czar (9971) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2017
pours unclear beautiful copper with orange and red tints, with a nice reviving beige-orange head offering good retention and lacing. woodsy/wooden berries, sweetish red specialty maltiness, delicately smoked malts, never bacon-ey, complex charred slow caramelized cereals, some sweetness - yummy berry jam; grassy and spicy supporting german hops, very clean lagering fruity action. moderately low and smooth carbonation, medium body - oily; semi-sweet smoky-grassy finish. spectacular smoked malt demonstration/depth. yummy sipper at five per cent abv. a masterpiece!

shuvar (292) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 14, 2017
Butelka. Ciemnomiedziane, opalizujące, z pokaźną czapą piany. Ładnie krążkuje. W aromacie dyskretna rolada ustrzycka na pajdzie świeżego chleba. Ewidenty wędzony ser, nie żadna ordynarna szynka czy cośtam. I wędzonka nie jest wcale zbyt intensywna - taka w sam raz. W smaku dość słodkie. pełne. Bardzo przyjemne piwo, osobiście zakwalifikowałbym je (mimo niezbyt wysokiego ABV) jako winter warmer. I tak samo jak winter warmera nie wypiłbym raczej pod rząd drugiego.
