BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Uerige Obergärige Hausbrauerei
Germany
uerige.de

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Uerige Sticke gibt es zwei Mal im Jahr im Ausschank - am jeweils dritten Dienstag im Januar und Oktober. Dieses Bier wird mit mehr Malz und Hopfen gebraut und ist deutlich gehaltvoller als Uerige Alt: Hinter dem intensiven, eleganten Aroma verbergen sich 6% Alkohol.

Der ungewöhnliche Name leitet sich davon ab, dass man in früheren Zeiten "stickum" ("hinter vorgehaltener Hand") weiter erzählte, dass der Braumeister wohl etwas zu großzügig beim Abwiegen der Zutaten war.

Der höhere Alkoholgehalt gestattet Lagerzeiten, die beträchtlich über das von uns garantierte Mindestfrischedatum hinausgehen.

Really more like a bock than an alt. Color is a deep mahogany color with small beige head. Aroma was slighly sherry llike with big raisen notes. Flavor was very sweet with malt caramel and more raisins. Not crisp and bitter like an altr is supposed to be but then again it really is miscatorgorized as an alt. Had medium carbonation and body. A nice beer but not an alt.

Pours a hazy brown color, some carbonation, tiny off-white head, some sticky lacing follows. The nose is mostly malty, very slight toffee/caramel. The taste is slightly sweet, malty, with some toffee/caramel. Light-Medium body, kinda on the watery side. Drinkable, a tasty brew.

It pours a slightly hazy brownish amber. A pinky finger's worth of uneven off-white head blips out quickly. Flecks of lacing spot the inside of the glass.

The aroma carries slightly sweet German malt with hints of sugar and berry. A crisp, steely edge of peppery hops zests the air. A dab of yeast biscuits up roundly.

Upon tasting, a flash of sweet regal malt gives in to a marching column of very crisp, very dry, and poignantly spicy peppery hops. A glimpse of residual malt earthiness is trod upon by more especially crisp, noble bitterness that lingers insistently. It's nice, basic, and quite clean.

Light bodied, the almost overwhelming crispness is a distinctly direct cleanser.

It comes in a unique flip-top, but it stands strong on its own. The malt is a nice backdrop, but it's the nippy noble hops that take the crisp cake. The clean finish prepares the palate for each ensuing sampling. It drinks easily and with a refreshing note. Cool bottle and cool beer, a cool combo.

Following the indomitable PaulK and his tognues on this review. Poured a brown color. Very clear. Not much of a head and it appeared fairly flat. Nose is a bit biscuity with some nice toasted malts. Flavor is simple malts. Fairly sweet at first but then swiftly followed by a nice hop presence. Sweet with a bit of berries toward the end. Very nice and light. Extremely easy drinking.

No head from a careful pour. Dark cloudy brown in appearance. A good raisin, malty, caramel, and woody nose.

Had a good time with this one. Lightly burnt caramel malt flavor, with an unexpected faint nose of rose petals (no kidding) deep in the sinuses when enjoying this beer. Also, a good dry finish.

Well worth it.

Paid $4.99 for an 11.2 oz. bottle. Uerige Sticke's is dark copper in color with a tiny wisp of a head. Aroma is a mix of light malts and light hops. A tiny hint of alcohol smell is also noted. Taste has a spicy malt character with some hop bitterness. Caramel sweetness is there towards the middle which leads to a spicy finish. This is definently the hoppiest German beer I've expirienced. Nice complexity of flavors working here. This is very drinkable stuff, however, in my opinion, Uerige Sticke is too expensive to be a frequent buy.
