Waitress is rocking socks with her sandals. Guess I really am in Germany. Holed up in the Bierstube. The märzen is the only thing on tap so I guess I'm drinking that.
The beer is a dark orange/amber that is still transparent. Lightly tanned two finger head that falls down fairly quickly leaving a film on top and lacing down the glass.
Smoky meaty aroma. Kind of weird but the way it should be. There is some slight caramel sweetness underneath.
Tastes smoky and meaty and leaves the same flavor lingering in my mouth. A little malt sweetness hides in there.
It's light-medium bodied with medium carbonation. Drinks fairly smooth and easily.
Oh yes this is a beer. No telling how many of these I had in my couple days in Bamberg.
Serving type: on-tap

Aecht Schlenkerla (although, I swear that k looks like an f!) Rauchbier. 5.1% ABV.
A: About a finger and a half of head. Deep red/dark plum in color. Some slight lacing; most slides off.
S: Oh, wow! I can smell the smokiness right away! It's akin to that of the smoked Gouda (Holland) I got from my work. Meaty/bacon. Black pepper.
T/MF: Fairly smooth on the palate. Has an off peppered bologna/sausage flavor, with a light rye taste on the back. Again, reminiscent of the skin on smoked Gouda.
This is quite weird, to me. The aroma is quite nice, but the taste is not something I would want in a beer. Very likely needs a food pairing. Maybe some heavy German breads...
Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
Serving type: bottle
