Als „Kräusen“ beschreibt der Bierbrauer die vielen Schaumblasen, die sich während der Gärung des Jungbieres bilden. Die Zugabe von einer kleinen Menge solchen Jungbieres zu einem bereits ausgereiften Bier wird als „Aufkräusen“ bezeichnet. Durch das Aufkräusen wird die volle Geschmacksreife des gelagerten Bieres um die Spritzigkeit des Jungbieres ergänzt.

Aecht Schlenkerla Kräusen ist ein bernsteinfarbenes, unfiltriertes Lagerbier mit leichtem Rauchgeschmack. Es reift in den tiefen Stollen unter dem Bamberger Stephansberg und wird kurz vor dem Ausschank mit klassischem Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier aufgekräust. Süffig und mit nicht zu viel Alkohol ist es die ideale Erfrischung für die warme Jahreszeit.

Stammwürze 11,7%
Alkohol 4,5%
Bittere 30

Im Brauereiausschank vom Holzfass ab 1. Juni bis Ende August. Export in die USA.

English Translation:
"Kräusen" describes the bubbles that form during the fermentation of green (young) beer. The addition of a small amount of such green beer to an already mature beer is called "Kräusening". Kräusening adds the full flavor maturity of the stored beer to the liveliness of the green beer that is added.

Schlenkerla Kräusen is an amber, unfiltered lager with a slight smoky taste. It ripens in the deep tunnels under Bamberg until just before adding the classic Schlenkerla smoked beer. Tasty and not too much alcohol, it is the perfect refreshment for a warm season.
Original gravity 11.7%
Alcohol 4.5%
Bitter 30

In the brewery from the keg from 1 June to late August. Exports to the United States.

caesar (7133) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2013
Tap @ In de Wildeman, large sample. Clear golden to amber color, medium head. Aroma is lightly smoked (at least for this brewery), some earthy hop, hint of sulphur. Soft bitter taste, again some smoke, bit dry. Crisp. Easy to drink, but for me it could have had a bit more of the wonderful smokey flavors Schlenkerla is known for.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2013
Poured a light amber with a small off white head. Aroma of soft roast malt. Medium body, flavour of sweet rauched malt, with a lingering dry finish.

PotjeBier (3346) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2013
Sampled on tap @ In De Wildeman, courtesy of the one and only Simon! Amber color, slightly hazy. Firm, off white head. Aroma’s: smoked malts (or fish, anyway: smoked), with some malty sweetness. Flavor is lightly sweet, smoky. Light bodied. Finishes with some malt/grain and a light bitterness. Nice, light & refreshing.

stouby (4666) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2013
Draught at the brewery. Hazy brownish with a beige head, ok lacings. Aroma light smoky and malty, caramel. Flavor light smoky and sour from the smoke, light greasy. Thin body. Ok.

kapusil (1432) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Hazy amber body, white head. Light smoky aroma with bread and floral hops. In the taste there is some bread, honey, smoke and floral hops. Light medium body, very refreshing. Awesome beer for the summer heat.

finol (3385) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2013
Draught at Akkurat. Pours grayish amber with a white head. Lightly smoked, some dark fruits, heavy in taste yet very drinkable.

aronvarga (441) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 4, 2013
Draught @ Sörmanufaktura/Sörspecialista. Cloudy, amber colour, white short-life head, smoked geranium aroma, light body, too fizzy, sweet taste, smoked light hoppy aftertaste. Unusual and interesting brew.

Wanja (771) - GERMANY - JUN 23, 2013
On tap (0.5 l) at brewpub, Bamberg... Clody dark Orange color, average head... Nice smokey aroma... Mild refreshing Lager taste, perfect for Summer... Mild smokey ending...

Cristobal37 (1142) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 19, 2013
Great summertime beer. Still features the smoky palate one expects from the Schlenkerla beers, but this lighter amber version won’t drag you down. It is light alcohol and light body, but still big flavor. A great full character session beer for the summer.

OllieBBommel (1531) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2013
