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

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
3rd LCRBM. Firm flowery and earthy flavor. Long hopbitter aftertaste. Hoparoma with even a hint of smoke. The difference between this beer and the "normal" bottled Uerige isn’t that great. This might be a bit more intense.

Very fresh bottle - Hazy red brown body, very creamy beige head, thick lacing; Very pleasant malty nose, deeper, fresher and more complex then their standard Alt; Big soft carbonation in bitter complex body; Very bitter dry finish, long with lots of aroma. Great beer!
