I was attracted by the simple, Bavarian label. I thought it was probably either a really good small-batch German beer or a really bad German macro trying to look the part....I took a chance, and really liked this beer.
Pours a very pale-clear, almost scary color. Reminded me of a domestic light beer. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma is smoky, which was very unexpected until I noticed it was the Aecht Schlenkerla brewery. Didn't connect the name until then.
Taste is classic Helles, with a very slight smoke undertone. Very enjoyable and very drinkable. I'll be buying more of this. Good "summer" beer, if you believe in such a thing.
Edit: Found some more of this finally. Still love it. I could drink this all day, and plan on buying a case to keep around.
