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.

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
