…in English…Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer – Marzen. I think this is my all time favourite beer (so far, I have plenty more to taste!). The name is quite a tongue twister and I really need to get someone who speaks German to teach me how to pronounce it properly. Since I don’t have to pronounce anything on here, it gives me the perfect opportunity to tell everyone how great this beer is!
I love the taste of smoked things; cheese, ham, bacon so when my Dad brought me this home to try, I was quite excited. There was definitely no disappointment! It is quite smokey tasting, but not overpowering. It’s also quite carbonated so it isn’t too heavy which is another good thing. I would really recommend drinking this with BBQ ribs, or anything that has been barbecued because the flavours together are phenomenal. The fact that it’s carbonated but also dark and flavoursome means that you could drink this any time of year, whether that be on a summer’s day or in the middle of winter tucked up beside an open fire.
This is the only smokebeer I’ve ever tasted or come across in shops. I would really like to try the other varieties the Schlenkerla brewery produces, and any other types. If you can recommend me any and where to get hold of them, it’d be much appreciated!
