Schlenkerla Rauchbier Lager
Pours gold in colour with a thick white head. Smoke and malty notes on the nose and the palate and a classic mild bitter finish. Once your palate adjusts to the unusual smokey flavour you'll keep coming back for more. Delicious.

In the middle of the old part of Bamberg, directly beneath the mighty cathedral, one can find the historic smoked beer brewery Schlenkerla. First mentioned in 1405 and now run by the Trum family in the 6th generation, it is the fountain of Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer. The smoked beer is here at the brewery tavern still being tapped directly from the wooden barrel according to old tradition.
Bamberg and Smokebeer or "Rauchbier" as the Germans would say, belong together. The self-proclaimed best source of Smokebeer is Schlenkerla: the most productive, most visited and most traditional Smokebeer source in Bamberg. It can be found in the middle of the old town, in close proximity to it's mighty cathedral.
