It’s Good!

I tried the Schlenkerla smoke beer last night.  We had it with Gerda’s homemade broccoli soup and laugenstangen with cheese.  It was a little milder than I expected but this could be the difference between the bottled and on-tap versions.  In any case it was excellent. The smoke flavor wasn’t at all overbearing, even at the beginning.  The beer went very well with the soup and a sandwich.  This is what I call an indoor beer, to be enjoyed with a good meal.

PS: A laugenstange is a type of bread roll I make from time to time.  These are pretty good and close to the original we get in Germany.  Next time I make them I’ll post a recipe and a picture or two.
