  1. I’ll have to seek that one out. I’ve had their traditional Rauchbier, which I really enjoyed, and I believe a smoked Pilsener. I love smoked food too and like good BBQ, smoke in beer has to be an accent even if it is fairly assertive. It has to be a beer first, not charcoal or ashtray first. Cheers! — Alan

    I am looking forward to trying this one, too. Might take a while, though, since it is nearly impossible to buy one of those anywhere near my hometown of Hamburg, Germany. You would think that German beers are more widely available in Germany than in the US….

    And by the way: it is called Aecht Schlenkerla Eiche. Eiche means oak ;o)

    Cheers! Nina

      Alan, Definitely check it out. I’m not exactly sure what the Helles was, but there was zero smoked malt used in that beer only the years of smoke residue in all their equipment.

      NIna, thanks for pointing that out. I would have sworn that was an F on the label, but then again I don’t know any German! 🙂 It’s too bad you can’t get any of these beers.

  3. Unfortunately my beer store didn’t have that particular Schlenkerla offering, but I did pick up their Marzen, Urbock and Weizen, as well as Spezial Rauchbier. I need to brew my planned smoked Moose Drool clone soon too.
