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.

Clear amber color with a rapidly diminishing head. The aroma is mostly hoppy and the flavor is likewise bitter and lightly hoppy. It is hard to see what makes this beer such a big dea., though maybe its the top beer in its style class.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2004
Very cool bottle, to be considered in appearance. Reddish brown, malty appearance with a light fizz but not much head. Bready, German hops aroma, some caramel cookies, French Fries, and Coppertone suntan lotion. Long-lasting bitterness, though fairly well rounded. Moderate palate, smooth. Interesting; a style I don’t know well enough yet.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Clear, dark coppery color, 1/4" ring of dusted brown head. Aroma speaks of little at first, but squeaks up a bit to talk of coffee, cocoa, nuts, a glorious, dark-toned morass. So, drink up! Ah, smoo-oo-ooth, with a deep, roasty, dark tinge on the palate. Delicate and delcicious, tangible touch on the tongue, great cocoa/coffee feel, that is so light, but so right! Tasty, tasty, tasty! Niceness personified in this bottle! Hurray for the lucky pubfolk of Dusseldorf that get to enjoy this freshly flowing! After my critical faculties have retired, it’s nothing but pure enjoyment, full-bodied,long-finish, but so perfectly smooth, I’m left uttering nothing but simple praise: Yu-umm, I’m saying, and wowwy-wow, wow!

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2004
(Bottle) Packaged in a cool looking flip-top bottle. Pours an amber-brown with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, and hops. Flavors of caramel, banana-nut bread, malts, and butterscotch. Enjoyable beer.

SpringsLicker (3133) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2004 Deep glowing brown color, almost cola-like with a minimal tan head that settles into an off white ring at the top of the glass. The aroma is like toasted mashmallows. Caramel flavor with just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Light bodied with a medium mouthfeel. An easy drinking brew.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Cloudy orange-brown/dark copper coloured…wild aroma of fresh herbs, honey, whole toasted grains and sweet sticky malt. Slightly spicy flavour – a bit of pepper and bitter hop flowers. Wonderful tight carbonation, flavourful body with figs, buttered toast, almonds and wheat. Nice long finish…

Had some of the rare kegged version brought to the US in April. Was oxidized but better than not available. This beer is definitely a souped up version of the standard. Perhaps the bitterness and malt was a little less balanced in this version, but I was still able to drink down lots of glasses. I wouldn’t make the special trip to the Altstadt for this one. I’d sticke with the original.

marcus (6499) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
This dark amber altbier pours with very little head and elicits very little aroma. However, it is a fine example of the style, with a slightly bitter and very satisfying caramel malt flavor. If you ever get to Dusseldorf, stop by Zum Uerige and try their home-made sausage, which complements their beer very nicely.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Pours a deep amber with aromas of honey, roasted malts and nuts. Flavors of nuts, A slight hoppiness and caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slighty sticky aftertaste.

Pours a hazy brownish copper with a slightly nice foamy off white head. Aroma is of roasted malts with a nice touch of hops. Flavour is malty at first, but the extra dose of hops dry this out and make it a pleasure to drink. Great stuff.
