Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier is a sort of beer produced by the Schlenkerla in Bamberg. It has a distinctively smoky aroma and flavour that is consistently present amongst the three varieties: Bock, Märzen and a wheat beer. Schlenkerla is a historical brewery-tavern in Bamberg, Bavaria, Germany. ... Bamberg is a town in Bavaria, Germany. ... Bock is a style of German beer. ... MÃ¤rzens are classic German beers characterized by a medium body and broad range of color. ... German Weizenbier Wheat beer is a beer that is brewed with both malted barley and malted wheat, rather than only barley. ...
Schlenkerla Rauchweizen is a smoky Weissbier with 5.2% alcohol by volume, while Schlenkerla Lager is a smoky Helles-type blond brewed to an alcohol level of 4.8%.
It is not certain when the current version of the Rauchbier emerged in and around Bamberg, but, because of the malting methods employed by the Schlenkerla brewery to this day, it is reasonably to assume that some form of smoked beer has been brewed by this enterprise for at least five centuries.
Because Rauchbier is a robust brew, it goes extremely well with bold, full-flavored foods, such as smoked ham, smoked pork, smoked salmon, smoked sausages, lamb chops, pork ribs, pork roast, suckling pig on a spit, or smoked cheeses such as smoked gouda or smoked provolone.
