Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier
Brewery: Aecht Schlenkerla (Heller)
Style: Smoke Beer
Format: 500ml Bottle
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.

WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
BBQ smoked beer
I love this beer for years, I remember the first time when I drink it back home (Greece) in a German restaurant. I was very excited when I found it here down under in Beer Cartel, which is very professional and have huge range of beers and more.
Deep red with a smokey aroma, a fine hop note and a light bitterness. Doesn't taste like chewing a charcoal log like some; my go-to smokey beer when you're keen for a few.
Really beautiful smokey bacon flavour.
Worth trying for something different
A very nice full flavoured malty dark brown beer with a smoky taste that is neither subtle nor overbearing and richly rewarding for a new taste sensation.
