I was not expecting a hoppy beer when I was told about the background of this beer. Like Jordan said, differences must be a regional thing. Very smooth and rich maltiness and a fairly well balanced beer and pretty easy to drink.

On tap at the Tuck’s brewery. Pours a darker red/copper with a medium off-white head. This was a fairly hoppy alt, very nice and smooth. Malts upfront are quick but provide a good base and a touch of sweetness. Floral hops finish this brew off nicely.

Max the brewmaster said this was a reproduction of the classic Uerige Alt exactly to the recipe. Dark brown/tawny color with a light aroma of light chocolate malt, a little dry. The pilsner malt is present but is shadowed by the use of some more dominant noble hops. Finishes balanced and traditional. Solid flavors here but not spot on to the Uerige flavors, probably a regional thing.

Quite complex, with a unique taste. You can taste the aging done here, believe it or not. I could certainly drink this again. Excellent hopping.
