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.

RBESG 2010, bottle at Brasserie 4:20
Hazy red-dark amber color. Initially the aroma is puckery, then some malt, hop, oxidized malt. Flavor of mildly roasted malts, light black malt; dry and dusty; medium bitterness, deriving from the roasted malts too. Not good.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2010
Tap at Ginger Man. Pours amber with a soft, white head. Nose holds some earthy hops, along with hints of lightly toasted malts. Flavor is mildly sweet, with some caramel malts, along with some hints of fruit and earthiness. Medium in body and well carbonated. Finish is outrageously dry. An interesting - and pretty good - beer.
