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.

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.

I didn’t like it at all, and I don’t think I can properly describe the displeasure I had while drinking it, so I won’t try. A sickly-sweet syrupy mess.

Slightly hazy copper body with a thick, fluffy off-white head that produces very interesting rocky formations. Malty aroma with whole grains, nuts, light, earthy hops, a little caramel (or is it toffee?) and a touch of vanilla. The body is hefty enough to handle the surprisingly big flavors. Nice, smooth and lightly sweet malt character is followed immediately by strong, bitter hops that show all sorts of greatness. Some pine character and a little citrus, but the largest piece is influenced by earthy, plant-like hops. Great flavor with a huge hop presence. While it does seem to be at it’s freshest, it’s still damn good. When fresh, this must be amazing.

Clear brown, white head, sweet molasses, slight bitter, watered down alcohol fuel with some more mollasess thing, molasses, and more molasses.

Beautiful amber color, and a really impressive bottle. Not much of an aroma, or a taste for that matter. Somewhat acidic/bitter, a little bit of sweetness in the aftertaste. Didn’t enjoy it.

Ok this beer taste like smokey water. I think there was a fire at the brewery, and this is the water they used to extinguish the fire. Not a good beer.

Ruddy and husky hazen copper brown color, thin, fluffy, beige cap sits briefly, a firm collar remains and a whispy skim; minimal stringy lacing sticks. Aroma is rich with sweet yet yielding maltyness, honey, nuts, buttered toast, and dried wild flowers or grasses. Taste has some delicate nuances and subtleties, starts smooth and inviting with tame caramel and light toasty malts but gradually builds with nuts and grassy floral hop tones that are very mild on the bittering, but really nice to let unravel. Bits of whole grain toast make a nice appearance just past midway. Very lovely in that regards, real nice. Finishes with some sweeter candyish fruity malts mixing with the hop tones and toast and drys out very calmly. Super fine and yummy finish. Feel is quick to be smooth and long to finish with a well rounded medium body and texture thoughout. Favorable buttery and candied sweetness keeps some teriffic balance over the flowery, grassy hops. T’was gone in no time...need more soon.

Very cool bottle. Reddish brown coloured. Aroma of caramel, malts and some hops. Malt, fruit, hops and caramel in the flavour. Bitter finish.

Bottle. Cool looking bottle. Really thin neck with a swing top cap. Well, i always thought it was perhaps going to be a little bit stale. Motelpogo said to me that alts are always better from the source, and i will take his word for it. Even though this was a little stale, there was still alot to be pleased about. Soft toffee malts. Grassy, herbal hops in the finish, nice, soft, dry palate. Very nice, if a little stale.

The color of a dark penny with a sluggish head. The caramel malt is strong in the aroma, smells like it could be a little oxidized. There’s a hefty maltiness in the flavor and a decent bitterness in the finish. I’d really like to try this in Germany and see how it compares close to home.
