Carnival comes but once a year - and you can only enjoy Sticke beer at Uerige twice a year. It contains more malt and hops and has a higher alcoholic content than normal Altbier. And our guests appreciate it! In earlier days it used to be whispered hand over mouth that Uerige was serving Sticke again because the master brewer had portioned the ingredients too generously. With today’s fully-automated operation, this could not happen. So Sticke beer is brewed intentionally - and this certainly doesn’t negatively effect either its quality or taste.

The two dates every year are always the same. The third Tuesday in January and October are the two Sticke days.

I’m pretty sure this is October 2005. Pours a deep amber color with a fairly thick white head. German hops are dominate and compliment an apple like malt aroma. I enjoy the flavor of this beer but it is not incredibly complex. Bitter german hops and a sweet malt backing make this easy to drink and thirst-quenching as water in hell. Solid offering.

When I popped the top on this one, it smelled like beer. Pretty straightforward stuff. The taste was nothing to write home about but did satisfy adequately for an Altbier. Amber hued, foamy head. Some sweetness and altogether easily drinkable.

Bottled Jan 31, and it wasn’t 2006. I think this one might have passed. Copper body with almost no head. Aroma has malty notes of caramel, bread and also some grass. Not impressive at all though, seems timid. Flavor is even worse, flat, stale, just... blah. I’ll rerate it if I can find a fresh bottle, it’s probably pretty good.

Gigantic foamy billowing head. The swing top actually popped and spritzed almost like champagne. Altbier? Seasonal? Hmm ... hops presence on the nose with a sly mix of sweeter malt. Good combo - almost like a solid IPA mixed with a top brown sweet ale. Sharp clear tawny hue. Fresh crisp finish. Cool sleek unique looking bottle. Enjoyable bier!

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Light white head with a ruby body. Sweet aroma similar to the Stone Double Bastard. Hops and malts are very present in it. Sharp initial taste with a slight caramel flavoring. Some bitterness typical of German beers in the ending.

Clear amber color with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of malt with hints of honey. Sweet flavor with light hops.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2006
Very hoppy though light aroma much like an APA, though with touches of eastern european hops. Pours burnt orange with nice though fizzy head. Taste doesn’t match up with APA so much as a pilsner in that it has nice hopping but a balanced hop backbone that is medium thickness though still assertive.

Bottle. Had this a while back, am now updating my "rated" list. Poured a nut-brown, nutty pleasant aroma. Had a good head, and excellent flavour. Another very drinkable beer!

Pours slightly haze nut brownwith an off-white head and good head retention. Nose is of a malty brown with some wood and tobacco notes. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Flavors are more malty than hoppy, nutty with a bit of roast. Fairly straightforward and pleasant.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JAN 16, 2006
Old notes from a tasting last year. Brown pour, decent head. Nutty malty aromas, and a bit doughy. Sweet malty flavors, some dough/bread, some nuts, some wood. Clean finish. Fairly enjoyable, and surprisingly bigger than I expected for an altbier.
