Notes/Commercial Description:
Uerige Alt ist das an Bitterstoffen reichste Bier Deutschlands. Trotzdem (oder gerade darum) ist dieses legendäre Düsseldorfer Altbier so vollmundig, aromatisch und bekömmlich.

Gebraut wird unsere obergärige Spezialität seit 1862 aus Gerstenmalz, Caramelmalz, Röstmalz, Doldenhopfen, Wasser – und mit unserer ganz besonderen Uerige-Hefe.

Unser Uerige Alt wird regelmäßig unter die zehn besten Biere Deutschlands gewählt. Es hat einen Alkoholgehalt von 4,7% und ein Mindestfrischedatum von acht Wochen.

A terrifically malty, tasty beer. I wish it came in a bigger bottle.

Really cool looking bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a copper brown, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like grass, toasted bread, caramel, and toffee.

A pretty good hop profile on this one, must be relatively fresh. Some herbal and grassy hop bitterness that lingers for a bit, with delicious crackery toasty bready malt flavor, along with dry caramel.

Medium bodied, pretty full for the ABV at 4.7%. Low carbonation, crisp, clean mouthfeel.

This one of the best German breweries that you can get in the US. Awesome stuff.

The beer comes in a hazy dark ruby with lots of particulate.

The aroma has pilsner quality of floral, grassiness, a toasted malt, caramel and candy sweetness, lager yeast.

The flavor follows with a slight caramel and candy sweetness in the front. A pilsner and lager yeast quality. Floral hops. Then onto a strong bitterness for the style of grassiness, earthiness, almost pine, and a big herbal and tea leaf quality.

A pretty good beer for the style, but because of the bitterness and hops, I suspect that my 10 month old bottle had some oxidation, so try to get this beer fresher than that.
