2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Looks nice, but has a very beery aroma, like that of a Bud almost. The flavor on this one is very ehh. Seems like just any other alt or amber ale with just a worse aroma. Drinkable, but why when the sticke and doppel sticke are so awesome?

Crushed with Jakebra. Dunno. Smells like poop. Flavor follows suit. Not pleasant to drink. Dries the tongue out like Punking.

previously tested on BTO 04/2007: Dank an MoritzF!
Liecht trüb, ordentlich Schaum, sehr schöne Farbe. Überraschend herb, schon fast bitter zu nennen, aber mit sehr aromatischem Hopfen, fein. Dazu ganz dezente Röstmalzaromen. Vielleicht gerade wegen der Herbe voller Charakter und Charme.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy amber pour covered by a lasting off-white head. A very very dry alt, hoppy from the beginning to the finish and in my mind, this cuts a lot in the malt development which other Düsseldorf better clearly do better than Uerige (despite their pub being so cool). Drying bitterness offers earthy and mineral nuances, but the complexity suffers from this hop focus. Surprisingly, the palate manages to be almost creamy. Ultimately, I don’t understand why so many considers Uerige to be the top Alt brewer in the world.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark amber, bit of UFO’s; with huge, very fine & dense dark beige head, lacy. Wood, yeast, dry malts, some of them coloured, fresh green leaves. BItter à souhait , wood, little smokiness, but above all a WONDERFUL bitterness, achieved, it would seem, with only noble German hops. Medium bodied, chewy, velvety texture. Another superb realisation from my N°1 favourite German brewpub. Danke, Sebastian

Bottle at LCRBM3. Orange, cloudy, lasting beige head. Odd bleachy aroma. Some pepper. Nice bleachy beer with great hop on the end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate:
Bottle at LCRBM3. Dark brown with a slight white head. Awesome grassy hops and tasty alcohol. Nice roasty malt notes with some caramel. Dry finish. Pretty good but not sure the alcohol should be so apparent.
