Lager Season is here!!!

Lagers are my go to beers for the Spring and Summer seasons.What gets my endorphins moving during this time? The smell of fresh shrub, early morning dew, the birds singing in sequence, warmer weather, longer days to extend my daytime shenanigans and a nice cool crisp lager to recap the day!

To kick off my Lager fix, I purchased Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen – a German beer import, bought at BevMo. And is a classic example of a smoked beer. Brauerei Heller-Trum / Schlenkerla has been brewing this stuff since 1405! The barley is kilned over a fire of beech wood and brewed in copper vessels and then matured in cellars for several months. There is something nostalgic about the entire brewing process, it gives me a feel of a time machine. Drinking a beer, the same beer, that Middle Aged folks drank, it’s pretty darn cool. 

Pushing at 5.4 ABV, this beer is very easy to drink, and truly delivers the smoke beer experience. It had a hint of spiciness, but not overwhelming. The wood smoke taste is very present and poignant. After a 5 mile climb up El Preito Trail, this beer sure did satisfy my thirst.

With Spring in full effect, the days being a little longer now, and big holidays insight. I’ll have lots a BEER material to blog about! Till next time, cheers!
