Aecht Schlenkerla Helles Lagerbier

CIMG5499

I absolutely love the Schlenkerla Marzen, but I’ve always wanted to try this smoke-y, “unsmoked” lager. It’s just about the only beer they make that doesn’t have smoked malts in it, but since everything in that brewery is covered in the stuff, I’m expecting that this one bring a little bit of that flavor as well.

Stats:
Munich Helles Lager. 4.3% ABV. Germany.

Pale yellow in color with some sediment. Lots of carbonation streams and no head.

Definitely some sulfur coming through here on the nose with a little bit of smoke and a malty grain.

Mouthfeel is light body with high carbonation.

Sulfer and grain on the palate with a hint of stone fruit and smoke. Grainy finish and it’s a bit metallic.

Interesting beer, but it seems to have some off flavors going on. Even with that, it’s still fairly tasty. 84 points.
