Pours pale golden with a white one finger head in an Austrian mug, lots of fizziness.
Grainy smell, some faint wood, smoke.
Smoked biscuity malts, lots of grain. A little too lemon zesty, aside for some nice acidic apple. Grass towards the finish, then some unwanted metallic hops.
Light body, almost watery, crisp, almost refreshing.
Never had a smoked helles before, it was interesting, although with a few off notes. I guess Schlenkerla are really great at crafting dark liquid bacon, but this helles was a bit of a let down.

4.66/5  rDev +18%

A: Clear golden yellow with a huge frothy head with sticky lacing. Pretty beautiful.

S: grainy and grassy with a hint of smoke.

T: Biscuity, bready, grassy, grainy. Taste starts with the biscuity grass then switches to being a touch smokey before going back to a bready grainy grassy taste. complex and wonderful.

M: Light bodied, crisp, refreshing.

O: Its amazing that this beer isn't talked about more. It has great balance, it's refreshing, crisp, packed with flavor, and 4.3% abv. Doesn't get much better.

(on tap at Brauhaus Schmitz, Philly - poured into a flared pils flute)

A: yellow gold, curious mild haze.... thinnish, fizzy head (unclean lines/faucet here?) - no lace

S: mild, blandish malt... light amount of phenolic smoke coming through... not particularly hoppy (just as an observation).... smells like a Helles, alright, just with subtle, flat aromas

T: vague clove phenolics.... only a light presence of smoke - was kinda curiously hoping for much more... not one particular element stands out.... blurry, flat malt and bready yeast flavors - seems "washed out"

M: quite light and clean.... not particularly effervescent... fine for what it's bringing flavor-wise which, if it were to have more flavor, it would need more body

O: was hoping for a bit more out of this, considering how wonderfully flavorful some of their other beers are.... the low level of smoke flavor wasn't necessarily a bad thing.... come to think of it, the last time I had a bland Schlenkerla on tap (the Lent beer) it was at Brauhaus, hmmm...
