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.

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.

Malty, reddish beer. An overpriced offering, in my opinion. Interesting, but nothing great.

Brownish red (MilkmanDan hit the nail on the head "tea-colored", very nice dense off-white head. Glass lacing is very nice also. Light malty caramel aroma along with a hint of some funk, the good kind. The flavor is roasted malt sweetness and bitterness, a good dose of hops followed by some maltiness. The hops are surprisingly strong but lead to an overall pleasing experience. he body is surprisingly light given the color and the overall level of flavor complexities. Very nice beer.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Darker than I expected, tea-colored, dark brown-red. Head is light brown. Good malty nose, nice toffee, bit of raisin character as well. Nice palate, full and creamy, not quite enough carbonation but still works quite well in the mouth. Great malty character, bit nutty, lots of toffee and butterscotch. Hops come on at end, good toasty bitters. Darn good stuff.

At thedm and hotstuff’s place. And for the record I think this was from Silphium(Brad) not myself. A clear reddish orange body with a decent sized white head on top. Sweet malty aroma with fruits in there too. A grapefruity and hops taste. Also there were notes of carmel as well. Nice.
