Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier-Märzen

Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier-Märzen is a rich amber lager in the Oktoberfest-Märzen tradition

"Rauchbier" means "smoke beer" in German, a rare specialty of the Bamberg region that comes in many variations, as any beer style can be brewed with smoked malt.

The base is a rich amber lager in the Oktoberfest-Märzen tradition and brewed with barley malts dried with beechwood smoke. Upon first open, the bottle releases a pungent scent of bacon that grows stronger on pouring the russet-colored brew. While smoked meat dominates the aroma, a soft and nutty malt flavor makes an appearance on the palate in a beer that is lighter in weight and easier going down than one might expect. A perfect accompaniment to grilled sausages or bacon cheeseburgers, this unique beer is a rare treat worth seeking out even to enjoy alone.
