Uerige Alt is the very definition of German Altbier. Dark ruby color, dense white foam with good retention, malty, complex ale aroma. Clean, intense bitterness with a roasty malt backbone. Other German Altbiers pale (literally) in comparison to Uerige. It is a wonder to me how they manage to export any of their product given their extremely limited production capacity and their popularity in and around Düsseldorf. This is a first cousin to the English IPA´s, but it is has a dry, clean finish, not fruity or musty like the English beers. Microbrewers take note: this is the target to shoot for. no over the top floral hops, no explosion of fruity esters, no scratchy astringency. I challenge all of you to produce anything even remotely resembling Uerige Alt!

33cl. HAzed amber pour nice off-white head with retention. Smell is ripe with noble hops, citrus rind and herbs. The flavor is dry and hoppy, waves of noble hops. It really is a pilsener with a tiny kick of toasted malt. Marvellous brew, I will one day try this fresh form the source.

På fat @ bryggeriet. I både smak och doft hittas karamell, gräs, persika, melon, honung. I smaken dessutom smörkola. Mjuk och len munkänsla. Färsk och fräsch. Jag kan endast instämma med vad bryggeriet själva säger: "simply delicious".

Una delle alt più buone che abbia mai bevuto, davvero deliziosa. Il gusto è pieno e bilanciato tra un lato dolce e caramellato e uno leggermente amaro e più speziato. Ottima!
