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.

drpimento (2771) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Aroma is really nice. The bottle had a solid pop when it opened and immediately there was a definite aroma of toffee. Head was thick, creamy and fairly long lasting. The rest of the aroma was roast, dark malt. Flavor’s only slightly similar to nose as the strong carbonation dominates. Same for body. This would have been so much better, if not for the heavy carbonation. Still, a very good beer. Easy drinking.

canary dog (724) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - NOV 15, 2015
This is another old-world quality beer. You can taste the centuries of beer-making in a brew like this. Flawless and nuanced....not at all in your face or gaudy like American craft brewed beer. This is malty and smooth, with just the right hint of dry hoppiness at the finish. Nice.
