I don't see a canned date or import date listed. The can that I have has "6.7% ALC./VOL."

Appearance: The beer has a large off-white head with just a hint of tan in it. The body is a darker shade of brown with good clarity. It's a really good looking beer.

Aroma: There is a sweet-smelling caramel aroma with a light bit of toast and some alcohol. Simply put, the beer smells outstanding. It's the kind of caramel aroma that keeps you wanting more.

Taste: Up front there are great malt flavors comprised of both sweet caramel and this lightly burnt carbon edge to the beer. It has this nice bitter, herbal finish which really complements the malt.

Mouthfeel: The beer is fantastically clean. It has perfect bitterness to counter the sweetness of the beer. It's extremely easy to drink and it just feels right.

Overall: Balance here really is the key, and this beer has found it exceptionally. It has a nice even-keel of sweet malt and bitter malt and hops. I would drink it again and I think that most people who try this beer would too. It starts out sweet but not too the point where it's obnoxious, then it rides this bitter wave to the end. I like it, it's really well done, and it is an import that seems to have survived.

Brewed with Wet Hersbrucker Hop Flowers, the alt style might not have been the best vehicle for wet hopping. Interesting and worth a try, On tap at the Lancaster Liederkranz.

See thru dark beer as it should be. Smells like dark malt AND hops. Not to style but who cares. Great hop/dark malt combo. Neither overwhelm. Appropriate mouthfeel for style.

Can at Metzger Bar and Butchery, Richmond, VA

A: The beer is very hazy light brown in color and has some grayish hues when viewed from afar. It poured with a quarter finger high light beige head that left a a thin collar around the edge fo the glass.
S: Faint aromas of pale malts, toffee, and yeast are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of pale malts and toffee.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste is a little malty but the beer is rather drinkable because it isn't heavy on the palate and there are just enough underlying hops to mask any sweetness.

Serving type: can

On-tap 6/25/2016 at Julian’s in Providence, RI, served in a flute glass.

A: The beer is a medium brown color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains brown sugar, caramelized malts and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, brown sugar and honey. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The hops presence is mild complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

On-draught in Hamburg. Sticke bier.

Smells fruity and sticky - fig, redcurrant, grape, sugarplum

Taste follows the aroma, with a bit too much sweetness. Malty. No hop profile.

Texture is smooth, wet, medium-bodied, highly carbonated, and somewhat creamy. Not an ideal complement to the taste.

Drinkable but not as great as I hoped for given Uerige's involvement. The grape emphasis is awkward. Not amongst the best sticker style beers out there, even though there are so few.

C+

taking such intense and seemingly disparate flavors as the alt these guys brew and wet hops sounds a bit like oil and water on paper, i didnt know what to expect from this at all, but it works weird as it sounds. the beer is murky and indian red, without much head, sort of dusty looking, but with a contrastingly fresh nose, the wet hops are obvious, seem insanely highly dosed by european standards, oily and vegetal and still fresh despite the journey from where it originated to my nostrils. pine and citrus intensity cut through the deep caramelized malts, somehow dry for how forward the sweetness is for a second, lagered it seems, but without much yeast character thats out of the ordinary here. i like the complexity, its bold on bold, some nuttiness and even roast to the malt, but it never feels heavy to me, it very quickly turns hoppy, which seem both weirdly bitter for fresh hops, and also super new tasting considering it had to travel. the hops are leafy and growing tasting, a crazy juxtaposition to the old european grain. its smooth and long, its complex and weird, but distinct and good with fried food. ill remember this fondly, but i prefer the original personally...

Pours a light, murky brown coloration with a medium frothy head. Great nose of floral, grassy hops and sweet malt, with a hint of honey. Taste follows the nose with a great balance between floral, grassy hops and caramelly sweet malts. Notes of citrus and a certain herbal earthiness. This works surprisingly well for a green hopped Alt beer, which are usually more malt-forward. It's quite different from your typical Alt, but very nice in its own way.

Pours a hazelnut brown color with a medium sized, stable eggshell head.

Has aromas of ripe orange fruits, fresh herbs, a tad of grass and lots of rustic caramel malts.

Drinks very soft, with a soothing, well nuanced carbonation, while the beer showcases a convincing balance between being malty sweet and herbal dry.

Tastes of toasted nuts and forest earth, together with whole grain bread and an early hop dryness, which not only consists of a herbal quality but also includes a ripe orange fruit note. Turns even breadier then, with the malts adding a sweet quality to the taste, which vanishes during the finish, in which the beer regains its herbal hoppiness, exhibiting a long lasting dryness, still coated by the malts.

Utmost flavorful and intense, well build with even more hop depth than many batches of the regular Sticke. Its carbonation though is almost a little too low and I am not a big fan of the enhanced malt sweetness, which is unusual for Uerige.
