NordicV (1162) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2014
Flaska från mzaar. Hasselnötsbrun öl med vitt skum. Doften är vörtig och maltig. För söt för mig. Smaken är betydligt torrare, med malt, brödighet och en nötig beska.

BenH (2333) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle thanks to McTapps to toast a successful trade. Sent and consumed super fresh. Dark amber with off white head. Nice aroma, raisins, toffee, dried fruit, slight citrus edge, slightly doughy. Took me a while to put my finger on the flavour but it’s bubblegum, tutti frutti with toffee. Full body with a bitter finish. Tasty beer, could drink a lot of these.

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.
