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

Thanks to The_ Beer_ God for the invite to the party to enjoy this beauty. You gotta love smoked beers to enjoy this. Beautiful copper color with just the right amount of smokiness-present and tasty but not as overpowering as the marzen or urbock. Full and rich with subtle hints of hops on the finish. It was worth the trouble to obtain!

Bottle, thanks SinH. Nose is salty ham, wood, bread. Palate is citrus, ham, orange, more ham in the finish. Quite nice, but I should try it more fresh.

Derbeth (1053) - Kraków, POLAND - NOV 11, 2017
Bottle with expiry date 11/2017. Dark brown colour, head does not stay long. Aroma is intensive smoked prune, also smoked ham. Light bitterness. Lively carbonation - too high. Heavy, not very pleasant to drink.

Cybuch (566) - Muszyna, POLAND - NOV 5, 2017
W aromacie suszona sliwka, wedzonosc, spodziewalem sie jakiejs szynki ale nic z tego. Bardzo przyjemny, intensywny, ale szybko sie do niego przyzwyczaja nos. Wyglada swietnie, bardza miedziana, klarowne, piana obfita, drobniutka. W smaku pelne, wedzone, tez sliwka. Bardzo pijalne, przyjemnie slodowe. Goryczka niska, wysycenie srednie do wysokiego. Lekko kwaskowe na finiszu. Świetne piwo, nawet bez slodu wedzonego bylo by dobre.

Bottle. Germans have better lives with their Schlenkerla than we have with our Grodziskie... Nice, well-balanced, full-bodied. Smoky, fruity, sweet. Yummy

Bouteille meilleure avant décembre 2017. Robe orangée foncée et moyennement trouble et surmontée d'un léger col de mousse blanchâtre. Arômes de malt bien fumé, bacon émietté, figue séchée, effluves minérales et caramélisées. En bouche, petits fruits foncées, figue séchée, caramel, umami, le tout sur un fond de malt fumé bien équilibré aux saveurs susmentionnées. Une finale qui ramène le côté minéral ainsi qu'un goût de feuilles mortes. Texture huileuse et corps moyen. Très bien.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 Co za zapach, szynka i boczek w dymie. Pianka delikatna, lejsing, trwala. W smaku dym, ale posmak słodkawy; jakby śliwki. Ciut za wodniste.

rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 25, 2017
500ml bottle, dark amber colour, with a fluffy beige head, with a nice mild smoky, fishy, meaty nose, with some fruity smoked, biscuity, bready, toasted malty accents, and a light smoked potato chips note in the aroma follows through on a medium- bodied palate with a smoky, meaty character with some fruity smoked, bready, biscuity, toasted malty, breadcrumbs, faint flowery leafy, grassy hop flavours, leading towards a fruity smoked, toasted maltiness, light lingering leafy, grassy, citrusy hop bitterness finish.

On tap at Tippler's tap. Pours reddish amber with beige head and aroma of smoked bacon. This dominates the taste as well. Unique experience but I prefer their doppelbock.

datrael (605) - Krakow, POLAND - OCT 18, 2017
W aromacie wędzonka, dym, szynka, suszone śliwki, oscypek, bogato i intensywnie. Z wyglądu rubinowe, klarowne, ładna beżowa piana. W smaku wędzone, kwaskowate, śliwkowe, susz wigilijny, słodkie, przyjemny dymny posmak. Pijalność wysoka, dość wodniste i lekkie. Ogólnie smaczne, wędzone, pijalne piwo
