COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Clear, dark amber color with medium sized tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, caramel, maple. Flavor is slightly bitter, creamy. A good, solid alt, but nothing amazing

desurfer (1219) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Pours a clear dark amber with a pillowy tan head. Aroma of smoky malt and a bit of hops. Flavor is surprisingly watery, with some caramel maltiness and German hops in the background. Tastes much less than 6.5%. Finishes sweet and moderately dry.

I was very excited to see this beer on the shelf the other day! Late last spring I picked up a bottle of the regular Uerige Alt and man, I loved the stuff! It was pretty pricey, as was this at $4.45 a bottle but man it’s freaking tasty! I was told that the Florida only got 14 cases for the entire state, and one of my local homebrew shops bought up 5 of those, which should last another couple of weeks.

Pours a dark copper body with a bountiful light tan head. The aroma and flavor offer a full dose of caramel malt and certainly a heap of pilsner malt. Slightly toasty, toffee notes, toasted wheat bread similarities. The hops are very refined.. I think they are more present in the aroma and then again in the lingering finish than anything else. Nice oaky woodsy suggestions. - Man.. Something just made me think about an old girlfriend I had many years ago… Every time I think of oak like flavors I always think of her for some odd reason. Maybe because we did a lot of camping and drinking beer around the camp fire…. I’m a strange dude aren’t I! - Anyway, The finish this a delicate inter-tangled combo of toasted malt and dry tarty hops. Now this is a beer I could drink year round and enjoy each and every drop of without ever feeling routine.

A good alt. Pours brown with a generous head. Taste is well balanced between malt and hop. Light bodied.

jtw (1098) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2005
dark amber color with an egg-white head. some floral grassy hops, which is surprising from a dark beer. however, there is a bigger malt presence in the flavor, along with some caramel, cinnamon and spice. plus it comes in a cool bottle. really a textbook example of the style.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2005 Draught. Clear, dark copper colour. Foamy, lacey head. Caramelly, slightly spicy nose. The taste is roastmalty, slightly sweet. Hints of vanilla. Ends in a spicy, bitter finish, which is quite lasting. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy texture. I absolutely love this beer.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Pours lightish redbrown with some head that disperses within a minute. Malty light caramel notes, finishes sharp hoppy. Above average, not wildly impressive. I would try again. Enjoyed chilled from bottle, poured into glass.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 22, 2004
Light amber colour with a thin head. Nose is malty and creamy, same for the taste. Sweet in the back and fairly round overall. Not bad, drinkable, thats a plus

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Amber body with off-white head. Caramel, hops, some anise in the nose. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. Flavor was moderately sweet and pleasant. Probably one of the better alts I’ve had.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 18, 2004
Clear light amber brown with thick off-white head. Light malt nose with faint hops. Rich mouthfeel with a sweet start and srying bitter finish. Rich malt flavor with cherry, hops, and vanilla. Really good, wow!
