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.

Idealnie klarowne, jasnozłote z obfitą, białą pianą; opada umiarkowanie szybko, całkiem niezły lacing. W aromacie słodowe, czyste, chlebowe, przyjemna szynkowa wędzonka, bardzo delikatna kukurydza z tyłu. W smaku na wielki plus brak typowych wad, masła, diacetylu, dmsu etc, jest bardzo czysto i słodowo. Goryczka niska, wędzonka dobrze dopełnia to piwo. Wysycenie średnie, nie jest wodniste, bardzo pijalne.

maekchu (3613) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle. Mildly malty nose, with light smoke, somewhat earthy, creosote. Clear light orange/amber color, frothy head. Malty flavor, gentle smokiness. Some umami-like and woody notes develop in mid palate ... and, as it warms, those intensify. Thin-medium body, light carbonation. Very nice, The smoke is there, but its more of an accent than a main feature.

danielst (383) - AUSTRIA - NOV 13, 2016
50cl bottle. Golden color. Smells and tastes malty and a bit like a ham sandwich, subtle bread and meat, but there is also a hoppy crispness. Balanced malt sweetness, a bit metallic (could be the bottle though). Overall nice and sessionable, probably prefer the Mrzen.

vipinvelp (4077) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2016
Clear daark yellow, white lasting, lacing foam head. Great aroma for this style and nice bitter taste. Some smoke there too, propbably infused by the brewing process using the same kettles as their Rauchbier. Very, very nice. (Velp 201611)

Cerbier (733) - - OCT 26, 2016
0,5l Flasche. Gelbes Bier mit schner Schaumkrone. Typisch malziger Geruch fr ein Helles, schmeckt auch erst so, dann kommt eine dezente Rauchnote dazu. Das Bier wirkt harmonisch und sffig.
