3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas of light malts, a bit of caramel, and grasses. Toffee and more grasses in the mouth, with some nice earthy bitterness. There’s a touch of citric sourness in there too. Lots of earthy bitterness. I like this way more than I expected to.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured a very slightly hazy amber with a short cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up toasty caramel, dark fruits, and sweet herbal hoppage.. soft, sweet, and enjoyable. The flavor was quite sweet, with caramel, chocolate, and darker fruits.. bitterness was mild with dusty floral and herbal notes representin’.. tasty. Just shy of medium-bodied, a touch grainy, and very refreshing with a hint of lemon at the end. Good stuff!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy dark amber with a hint of ruby. Nose is a mix of old fruit skins. Slightly sweet in a mature fashion. Flavor is tangy. A touch of kick from spice on the tongue. Overall it seems a bit like grapefruit skins, tamer though. Feel is nice. Good level of bubble. Definitely drinkable. Very smooth. Just don’t know how to compare it to other altbiers since this is my first.

2/22/05 330ml. Tasted side by side with the Sticke, Pinkus alt., and Alaskan Amber. Amber with long tan head. Sweet Biscuity aroma. Nice balance of biscuit malts and hops. Better than the sticke, Pinkus or alaskan. More balance. a nice refreshing alt. I’d love to get this fresh

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2008 On tap @ Bruxellensis (thanks Andy). Dark amber color with an foamy, off-white head. Malty, grainy aroma with some hops. Great balance as coffeeish malts bring in medium bitterness with an odd touch of smoke and wood. Dry-bitter finish. Maybe a bit thin. Quenching yet full of character--my kind of beer. RE-RATED after repeat samplings from bottle and at the pub in Dusseldorf. Easily my favorite Alt, thanks to the uncompromising bitterness. Damn my American palate. I is what I is.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flip-top bottle. Small vanilla colored head that was fizzy, no lacing, transparent, visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Malty, caramel and fruity nose. Flavor was malty, caramel, bitter, and thin tasting. Smooth, thin mouthfeel. Light body. Not a bad brew, just one that I truly didn’t enjoy all that much as there are better ones out there of this style. Lacked character.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This flippy top bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a hazy softly carbonated brown colored body and a good lacing. The nice aroma was brown malt. The thin mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of brown malt. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled (Thanks DerDoppelbock). Dark amber colour with big beigeish brown head, lacing. Aroma is slightly roasted malts along with some earthy notes. Flavour is slight roasted malts along with very fruity notes, just to finish in hops and some very vegetably notes, A nice thing indeed. Very refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cool looking flip top bottle purchased from Beer World of Largo that pours a solid clear amber color with a tan head. The aroma is light with a mixture of varying degrees of roasted malts. The taste starts with roasty malts and slightly astringency and then picks up a hint of fruitiness for a moment. The flavors are decidedly smooth and blended. Actually there’s a medley of fruit notes toward the finish and lightly roasted to Munich type malts surface to add a bit more complexity.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
7/13/2007: Uerige Alt is hazy and honey-colored. There is an off-white head the fades away and leaves a thin veil and some scattered lacing. The aroma is dry and floral with notes of bread, fruit (i.e. apples), and maybe even a hint of oxidation. The flavor has some pale and lightly toasted maltiness, a hint of butter (only noticed this in the first taste), and a mild to moderate bitterness. The finish is a bit dry and tastes like herbal tea. There is also a strong orange peel flavor in the finish and aftertaste. This beer has a medium body and is very smooth on the palate. Uerige Alt is decent overall, but I prefer a bit more malt and dark malt complexities when it comes to Altbier. Actually, this beer tastes a lot like an ESB...
