COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Schlenkerla Helles” is brewed with fine Bavarian aroma hops from the area around the city of Nürnberg. It’s 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”. Editor’s 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.

mgajdaczewa (2350) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2017
W aromacie czysty profil dymny, co jak na popłuczynową wędzonkę 9 (warzone bez słodów wędzonych) jest szokujące. W smaku lekkie, intensywnie wędzone, dymne, żadnych nut szynkowych. Bazą jest jednak tylko helles, mdły, bez goryczki, z ledwie zarysowaną zbożowością. I tak nieźle!

KW92 (1711) - Warszawa (Warsaw), POLAND - MAR 16, 2017

Butelka z datą: 03/2017
AROMAT: Dosyć intensywny. Słodowe. W tle delikatna nuta wędzonki (aromat wędlin).
SMAK: Słodowe. Przyjemny posmak wędzonki. Spore nasycenie. Goryczka średnia, raczej krótka.
WYGLĄD: Barwa słomkowa, idealnie klarowne. Piana średniej wysokości, nietrwała.
OGÓLNIE: Całkiem smaczne piwo z legendarnego niemieckiego browaru. Choć powiedzmy sobie szczerze, że gdyby nie ta wędzonka byłby to kolejny nudny jasny lager.

Jabic (733) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 15, 2017
Ar: Very faint smoke, with a ham/bacon hickory note; some light clean bread, with hints of herbal noble hops. Ap: Pale gold, crystal clear; large white head with great retention, cap of mousse with a trail of chunky lacing on the glass sides as the head slowly subsides. T: Lightly smoky, with a phenolic edge; smoke phenols combine with moderate bitterness and herbal hop flavor, lending a fairly lean, bitter edge; lightly doughy malt; very clean fermentation profile; no sweetness, cracker malt flavor throughout. P: Light body with medium-high carbonation; finish is dry. O: Fun take on a helles--with the smoke element; the smoke is just on the borderline of unbalancing the beer, given the phenolics, but it does stay in balance overall; the helles beer underneath is nice, quite clean and with a nice backbone of fresh pils malt.

Pleasant beer. Nice aroma - for me caramel/floral but mildly so. Golden, frothy, appearance. Pleasant but not a wow taste - medium sweetness, medium bitterness (i’d prefer a stronger malt taste) Good palate. medium body, creamy, lively. Very drinkable - I’d like to try it draft.

mariuszek (1508) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 7, 2017
Clear golden, long lasting white head. Clean grainy aroma with smoky notes. Crisp, medium carbonation, clean grainy, malty taste with a bit of smoke. Great beer. And helles is not my favourite style.

Great beer from a great town Benburg, surprisingly enough there is no smoked malt in this lager !!

ebone1988 (2232) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2017
Aroma is slightly smoky, herbal, perfume, wheat, earthy hops, different. Appearance is golden, white head, slightly hazy. Taste is perfume, smoke, earthy hops, herbal, interesting. Mouthfeel is light body, light carbonation, smoky herbal aftertaste. Overall, it’s weird and interesting, unlike any beer I’ve ever tasted, and certainly a unique Helles. It’s worth trying. This brewery makes interesting beer all around.

3.5
Bush_Docta (432) - - FEB 16, 2017
Pale golden, clear; pours with a thick, white head which leaves very nice lacing on the glass. The aroma is smoke (smoked ham, smoked cheese, charcoal) and malts. The taste is malty, bready with distinct smokiness, The bitterness is average, hoppy; the beer’s medium-bodied and very drinkable. A good combination of a classic malty lager and smoke.

3.8
Manslow (1963) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Butelka 500m. Kolor złoty, klarowny do bólu, piana biała, drobnopęcherzykowa, ładnie osiada na szkle. Aromat łagodnej wędzonki, słodów a w smaku dochodzi łagodna goryczka ze słodem w tle. Bardzo dobry lager, wysokie wysycenie . Na podniebieniu przyjemne,dobrze ułożone i doskonale pijalne piwo.
