COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlenkerla Helles is brewed with fine Bavarian aroma hops from the area around the city of Nrnberg. Its lagered in century old caves underneath the historic Schlenkerla brewery and maltings. Schlenkerla Helles is boiled in the same copper kettles and bottom fermented by the same yeast as the historic Schlenkerla Smokebeer. Its subtle smokiness without using smoke malt makes Helles Schlenkerla Lager a unique representative of the classic lager beer style Bavarian Helles. Editors note: Since this is not intended as a smoked beer, and is not billed as such, it has been classed here as a Helles, despite some samples having residual smoke character.

From tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours a clear golden with a big white head. Aroma has a light but prescent smoke, pilsner malts, slight grassy EU hops, pretty clean. Taste is crisp, subtle sweet, light bitterness, quite a bit of smoke. Light, crisp body and a medium high carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2017 Butelka 0,5l. Aromat przyjemny, wędzony ze typowym dla jasnych lagerw słodowym, delikatnie siarkowym tłem. W smaku głwnie słd, delikatna wędzonka. Wysokie nasycenie. Przyjemny, ziołowy finisz, goryczka zaznaczona.

Ar: Mila, lagerowa slodowsc, przyjemne nuty wedzone. Subtelnie bardzo jest w aromacie. Wyg: Rasowy lager, totalnie przejrzysty i klarowny, fajna biala, srednioziarnista piana. Sm: Wysoko wysycone, mocna lagerowa slodowosc podbita delikatna nutka wedzonosci. Swietny lager, ale nie obca mu typowa leciutka lagerowa siarka, z wyrazna siarkowa goryczka, ale jest ok. Pos: Lagerowa goryczka, minimalnie zalega. Odrobinka wedzonosci ze slodem w tle.

Piwo klarowne w kolorze zlotym z obfita biala sredniopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie niezbyt intensywna wedzonosc, troche ziolowe plus slody i typowe nuty lagerowe. W smaku lekko wytrawne z niska goryczka i wysyceniem na wysokim poziomie. Lekkie i pijalne jednakze spodziewalem sie wiekszej wedzonki.

kluczbork (262) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle. Nice, balanced, but not very intensive aroma- smokyness (smoked sausage) in the first place, then noble, continental hops notes (very herbal) and light bread maltyness. Pale, clear with white head and classy lacing. In the taste, the smokiness is also present, but goes away after couple of minutes. Apart from that, therere bread maltyness and delicate, herbal notes from the hops. Bitterness barely noticeable. Too much CO2 for me, but its typical for this style. All in all, positive surprise for a Helles.
