They Say, We Say... Posh Beer

Welcome to the first (and feasibly last, knowing my memory) posting of 'They Say, We Say...' a new Mint Custard feature in which advice is proffered in a less than scientific manner on a range of consumer goods by myself and Mrs Custard. Our first review is for Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier - a posh Bavarian beer that our friend Mr Flange purchased during his recent stay.

They say: "Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer –Brewed According to the Bavarian Puirty Law of 1516. Aecht Schlenkerla Wheat is the unusal sibling of the classic Maerzen Smokebeer. Only the barley malt portion is smoked over beech wood logs while the wheat malt remains completely unsmoked. The light smokiness is coupled with complex notes of banana and clove created by the use of Bavarian style wheat beer yeast. It is unfiltered (cloudy), unpasteurised and bottle conditioned.

Mrs Custard says: "Tastes like burger rings..."
