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.

LIght hop aroma and copper in color. Large airy head on initial pour but, quickly fades away. Not much malt taste but hop bitterness is clearly present. Has a nice clean finish.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Clear, dark copper body with a grayish, tight silky head. Nice deep maltiness with aromas of toffee, caramelization and ginger bread. Deep earthy hops and notes of oak. Malt and hop combination gives the impression of an earthy single malt scotch. Fairly sweet but firmly bitter and well-balanced. This is really nice and a personal epiphany for the style. I’d be happy to drink this regularly.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2005
Had this one bottled. Medium reddish color, somewhat effervescent, very little head, quite hoppy and bitter with notes of orange, lemon and banana, fading quickly into a nutty taste at the back of the palate.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Red-orange with a small head. Earthy & herbaceous hops in the nose, with hints of wet cardboard, medicine, cherries, black licorice and mild biscuit. Initially watery and light palate, until things catch up on the mid, blasting off with caramel and tofee flavors, which linger with hints of biscuits, dough, potato skins and fruits. Fairly thin body. Not that flavorful. I hope this isn’t the best Alt in the world.

Sammy (9990) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2005
Very drinkable, but in gulps owing to signfiicant carbonation. Good hop aroma, colour. Tasty spice and good bitterness. Nutty toasty and fruit worked nice. Somewhat dry and malty finish. This was a hard beer to track down and must have again. Thanks ClarkVV.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 20, 2005
Poured into a standard alt glass from the bottle. Pours brown with a small tan head. Taste and aroma are earthy and spicey. Not bad.

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2005
Bottle. Cool one at that. Pours a dark amber/brown color with small off-white head. Aroma is bready, malty, and clean. No hop aroma as I would expect. The flavor is strongly malty with a subdued bitterness. Finishes slightly dry. A very nice treat.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2005
Goblet with a really cool looking long neck. Pours a nice dark amber with a small off white head which turns into a ring around the glass. Aroma is malty with bread, caramel, cookie and a touch of bacon. The cookie is present in the mouthfeel along with butterscotch. This is really interesting stuff which I will certainly try again.

Cobra (1100) - - APR 10, 2005
33 cl brown, super longneck bottle with swing top and ceramic cap. Bottled on 1/31/05. Poured out a distressed leather color, with a minimal white, foamy head. Left a smattering of lacing down the sides of the glass. Aromas are of lactic wheat malts, slight smokiness, sweet caramels, dusty barn, well worn saddle leather. Flavors are of strong malts, some smoke, sweet background malts as well. No hop aromas, but an earthy hop bitterness to it. Medium mouthfeel, dry, somewhat tannic finish. Decent beer overall.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 1, 2005
Bottle, goblet. Dough, cookie, nutty, bread. Solid German caramel malt base. Dry, floral hops. Very balanced, very pleasant. Intense amber hue with copper highlights. Smallish, white, foamy head. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter flavor becomes a moderately acidic, moderately bitter finish. Finishes spicy and dry. Medium body, smoothg texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: just incredibly drinkable. Almost exactly what I’ve been expecting from this style and never found before.
