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.

Medium beige head atop a clear copper body. Aroma is light sweet, caramel, light grassy/herbal. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some fruity, some alcohol evident, finishing herbal/earthy. Medium body. Very drinkable.

This is a ok Altbier. Caramel, malt, and sweet flavors. Finishes creamy, smooth, and chewy.

Clear nut brown body with little head. Malty nose with some alcohol evident. Thin, light body with a slight bitterness near the finish. Not a lot to this brew.

Clear golden brown w/ a small head. Slightly sweet flavor. It’s a good looking beer. Fairly light bodied. Like a small-brown ale.

Very delicious - everything I could want in an Alt. Malts are caramel, bread and cookie dough (hint of cinamon). Fruityness in aroma and around the edges. Well hopped - warming and rounded (I think the Blimp City had a slightly "brighter" hop to it). Medium thick and very smooth. Now, I'd like to see this in a six pack - very easy drinking and well balanced.

Deep amber out of the bottle with only a film for a head. Bottle says "Bottled on 29.04." Fruity notes with lots of toast and caramel sweetness. The finish is a little watery. Nice hop bitterness in the finish. Tastes a little like underdone home brew.

Bottle pours translucent amber, small white head, and decent lacing.   Bubblegum, banana nut bread, pears, and light smoke on the nose.   Flavor is bready, malty, and a bit nutty.   Seems rather average for an Alt.   Bottle dated 29.01, assuming its from this year.   Something is missing...

Well, I paid homage to the German part of my heritage tonight with a couple freshly tapped pints of Sticke Alt and a few fried Goetta meatballs here at Steinkeller in Oxford. I enjoyed the Goetta, but the beer was the real treat. Poured from the tap a deep red-brown color with a thick, creamy tan head that left abundant lacing on the glass. Aroma is always difficult to detect in the bar setting, but caramel and toast were evident. The flavor was subtle yet rich and opened up as the beer warmed (it was quite cold at the beginning). Rich layers of caramel, toast, brown sugar and hints of fruit (a touch of grape, a hint of cherry) led to a surprisingly bitter earthy hops finish with metallic notes. As the beer warmed the sweet caramely malts and toast became more dominant. Very rich mouthfeel- this is one smooth beverage. Glad I made it to Steinkeller for the 8:00 tapping- the keg was empty at 8:29! Thanks Rick (clmojo) for the updates (and that glass of Kulmbacher)!

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2004
Dark amber to brown in color. Smaller, but dense and stable bone colored head. Side of the glass just a covering of lace. Mild aroma of rye bread, caramel, and crushed dried flowers and mild blue cheese. Starts small and builds as it warms. Has a spicy undertone from the start. Light sweetness mingles with this acidic bite. Deep rich caramel flavors. Light on the tongue. Linger is pure malt nirvana. Yet, to many hops still can be too much of a distraction.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 I enjoyed this one. Translucent brown with a moderate head. Aroma of noble hops, maybe Saaz and/or Hallertau and rich caramelly malt. Slightly bitter. Delicious. Mouthfeel is bubbly and light. Finish is slight dry. Great beer!
