Brewed exclusively for Lent, the Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer is an unfiltered smokebeer, brewed according to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Bottom-fermenting yeast gives the reddish brown lentbeer a natural cloudiness. This full bodied, highly drinkable lentbeer has a strong malty flavour, smoky taste and a light bitterness.
Due to the nourishing yeast, the Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer has the "Brotzeit already included" (German word for afternoon snack). The Schlenkerla Lentbeer is made from a mixture of light (i.e.. non smoked) malt and Schlenkerla Smoked Malt. It is brewed in classic copper kettles in a two-decoction mash with hops from Spalt (near Nuremberg) and Hallertau.
One week of primary fermentation is followed by a two month period of lagering in the ancient cellars underneath Bamberg. The lentbeer is served unfiltered with fine bottom fermenting yeast from the keg thus preserving its full body and aroma.

Another flawless purchase from this fantastic company! Ordered a gift box for a friends birthday, delivery was so fast, communications were spot on, and the beer selection was amazing. Couldn't ask for more.
It's a fantastic shop and I can't recommend it highly enough. Wonderful selection of beers, regular rotation of what's on tap and lovely helpful staff. If you can't make it in person their delivery options are great, and very quick if you live local. A really nice selection of low to no alcohol beers as well. You'd be a fool to not check it out.
Excellent service all round; the beers arrived the next day and they were all fantastic quality.
I thoroughly recommend indiebeer to anyone seeking the best beers.
Clare and Owen have kept me stocked up throughout the pandemic. Indiebeer has a wide selection of great beers, delivered with care in the local area same day/next day.
Excellent communication, parcel received very quickly and well packaged, brilliant all round A+, quality service
