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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Cloudy amber color,medium sized white head that had a decent hangtime then faded slowly to leave a bit of a lcae behind.The aroma was malty and nicely hoppy with a slight citrusy side to it.I have a cold so it’s hard to tell.malty caramel flavor with a nice hop presence and over all not bad at all.Fairly well balanced and smooth,i could go for a few more of these.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Bottled. Pour was a hazy medium amber with orange highlights and a tall, creamy beige head. Fragrant grassy and floral hops meshed with a considerable amount of caramel maltage... very enticing. Caramel malts and fresh floral hops throughout the flavor, too... along with some nuttiness. Smooth and medium-bodied at best on the palate, with some hoppy bitterness at the finish. Quite an enjoyable brew, and Style Rating #70.

bombshelter (349) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 14, 2005
bottle from cairo. low carbonation, pours a cloudy dark amber. aroma is very mild...malt, some roast? medium body, decent malty base, but the finish is unpleasantly medicine-y. this is average at best.

jerome6957 (17) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle from Fancy Grocery NYC. Pours a dark amber with a small white head that diminishes quickly. Big molasses and grapefriut aroma, with some raisin and toffee back there too. Wonderful Munich malt flavor, moderately sweet, followed by an avalanche of hop flavor. What was great about this beer is that just as the malts start to give out, the bitterness kicks in, allowing you to get the best of both, with little blending. How’d they do that? A real treat.

Frank (4007) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 2, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2010 Dark amber w/ a tight head that diminishes to a nice ring. Very nicely balanced flavor--a deep munich malt richness balanced w/ a floral nobel hop aroma and a good dash of bitterness. Delectably quaffable and an elegant example of the style. Neato bottle too.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2005
A little sweeter and a little fuller than the regular Uerige, with the bitterness in the finish a little more tamped down. The carbonation seemed low and for the sweetness the mouthfeel tended towards being watery, which was odd. I’d love to have some more caramel taste in here.

Schanulleke (8) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2005 does not count
Tasted 18th jan. 2005 at the brewery. A very good beer but measured bitterness was only 26 IBU’s. All the stories on the internet about higher hoprates and dry hopping are b******t. It has more alcohol than Uerige Alt, but less bitterness.

Bottle. I had first had this beer in Chicago last year. Clear amber with a foamy tan head and lacing. One of the first alt. Beers I have had that is so complex. Nutty malt and a grassy hop bite. Nice beer.

One of my favorites. Drink slightly chilled or else you won’t get the full flavor.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Small rubber stopped brown bottle purchased from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. ABV 4.5%. Hazy brown hued having a small, white diminishing head with good lacing. No discernable aroma. Average carbonation. Medium bodied dry palette that starts with sharp bitter, alcoholic taste and finishes with moderate bitter of average duration. Slight bottle leakage when bottled stored on side but carbonation and flavor seemed fine. A good drinkable beer.
