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

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2016 Tap at Bavarian Lodge. Dark brown, iced tea color with a thin, clingy ring of foam. Smell of Gouda cheese that marks all Schenklera beers. First sip offers some big malts, but those are immediately swallowed up by the house smoked malt with the Gouda rind taste. But for a smoked beer, that’s exactly what I expected, and I ordered it because that’s just what I like.

Ar: Sweet, oily smoke; toasted bread and a bit of char. Ap: Deep amber-brown, almost mahogany; crystal clear; large light tan head with very good retention, leaving a puffy cap of foam and pulling-webs on the glass sides as it subsides. T: Oil and toast crusts; light sweetness and deep, layered smoke; ash and char mingle with a medium-low bitterness; red apple and plum; oaky and peppery; depth of tangy toasted malt throughout. P: Medium body with high carbonation; finish is medium-dry. O: Nice richly malt take on a rauchbier; the smoke and oil persist throughout; tangy melanoidin maltiness.

W aromacie mocna szynkowa wędzonka. Smakuje podobnie, ale jakby mniej wyraziście, dodatkowe nuty ciemnego chleba. Trochę mało ciała.

Wędzonka szynkowa. Cały czas na propsie i trzyma poziom. Do tego chlebek i karmel.

Bottle at home. Pours dark reddish brown with a big and foamy beige head. Aroma has smoky malts with rye bread and ham. Taste has a pleasent smokiness with ham. Really nice.

En tysk rökig lager med ett gyllen brun rött utseende med en grumlig medium krämig skum krona med en doft av rökt kött och smaken påminner oxå om rökt kött lite bitter söt eftersmak men helt okey öl ändå ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (5,5%). Brown and hazy. Medium beige head. Aroma reminds of smoked ham with fruity notes. Taste is smokey bit still rather smoth. Ok but not really my type of beer. Probably good with some smooked beef.

Barwa ciemnej herbaty, nalewa się z obfita pianą. Aromat wędzonego słodu (idący w stronę szynkowej wędzonki) i karmel. W smaku również intensywna wędzonka, tym razem bardziej przypominająca mocno spieczone, wręcz nadwęglone kiełbaski z ogniska. Oprócz tego nuty chlebowe, karmelowe. Wytrawne, z wyraźną palono-ziołową goryczką. Dość wysokie wysycenie. godne polecenia, szczególnie dla miłośników wędzonki.

Zapach drewna, szynkowy ale szynka nie taka jak z opowiadań, troszkę słabsza, lekki karmel, nuty słodów używanych do dolnej fermentacji. Pian bujna, drobna, barwa bursztynowo-miedziana. Smak przyjemny, wytrawny, szynkowy, goryczka średnia, lekka kwaśność.
