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.

Here’s a winner. Pours a medium brown with a nice beige head. The aroma is huge of toasted bread and malt. In the flavor there is lots of bread and toasted malt flavor with balancing bitterness that tends to linger.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Spicy Spalt hop aroma, herbal and piney. Clear dark copper, thick beige head. Great balance of nutty malt and piney hops in the flavor. Lingering bitterness, with a slight hop-derived astringency. Medium-full body. A really nicely balanced German ale, very tasty.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Deep amber-red color with a minimal off-white head, this has a nifty nutty sweet malt aroma with a healthy smattering of earthy hops thrown in. Solid roasted malt flavor, not real sweet, with a good hop counterbalance. Even better than their regular alt.

Heh, Grolsch-top bottle with a boring label. Dark reddish brown color with a nice malty aroma. The flavor was malty blending into hoppy.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Beautiful long neck flip top bottle pours a brown tan color with a small head and no residual lace. The aroma is serious malt sweetness. The flavor is drier than the aroma, with some good caramel flavors mixing with the hops as a balance. The palate is rich and almost "sticky". Overall, I could drink a lot of this.

Bottled 11.2 oz. Mahogany brown. Light roasted malt aroma mixed with some fruit. Good carbonation. Malty with some hoppy bitterness at end. A good clean taste. Multiple tastings.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2012 I bought this because it;s a pretty cool bottle. This puppy is a little old. Bottled Sept of 01! Roasty caramel sweet malts with hints of mint, roastiness and metallic notes. Transparent amber color with an off-white head. Quite thin, roasty, and malty with coffee hints and some DMS to finish. A tad boozy...(6/4/5/3/11)~~~~~~~~~RE-RATE~~~~~~ been 7.5 years since I last visited this beer, and that is incredibly way too long. Bought this bottle at the Davis Beer Shoppe. Bottled on 06/11, which means this is probably 6 months old. The aroma on this is not so good. It’s a bit weird. Some tart, almost lemony notes are present. A bit metallic, too. This beer pours with a massive light tan head and a mostly transparent amber body. Starts a bit sweet, and chewy with some caramel malty sweetness. Light minerals and metallic hints are present in the middle. Finishes with some diacetyl buttery character. Mildly toasted finish. The mouthfeel is a bit flat, and lacking carbonation. I’m not sure if this is just old, or if it’s usually this flawed, but between the poor aroma, overuse of priming sugar, and the diacetyl, it’s not a hit with me.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Bottled. Nut brown. Intensely roasty, sweet, and thick rich maltiness. Notes of licorice and ash, richly hoppy with really bitter finish.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2004
Peculiar chock full of rye and carroway nose with a touch of carmel and a touch of alcohol. Firm mouthfeel with a lot of strange maltieness (more of that rye) pepper, earthy hops and a little alcohol. Very smooth and lingers a while with more maltiness.
