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.

Theis (13372) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle (swing-top) at home. Clear dark brown - white head. High malty, grassy, chocolate, fruity notes, light thin body, begining to get bad... but still drinkable. Very simple.

Oakes (12361) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 At the brewpub on Sticke Day. Golden-brown, bubbly head, very hoppy aroma, and lots of malt richness as well. Rich, chewy character, lots of sweet sugary malts with earthy hops. Quite a bit of bitterness, good dry appetizing finish. Definitely a high quality alt.

Original rating, 2005 for an export version. Golden amber colour. Slightly earthy, caramelly aroma. Chewy, woody bitterness with caramel layers and lots of earthiness. Things ease up a bit towards the finish, right when I want the intensity to increase. Sort of ashy-tasting, just like its younger brother. Solid, but unspectacular. 7-4-7-4-15 = 3.7

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours caramelly amber with a slight haze. Fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is malty, sweet, some caramel. Good citric and flowery hoppiness as well. A hint of toffee. Medium carbonation, good and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely balanced, lots of sweet maltiness, toasted, caramel, grassy. Long, lingering aftertaste with good toasted caramel and a good deal of bitterness. Really nice and very drinkable.

Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2013
RB Odense Early Summer Fun. Copper with a small white head. Rich malty aroma with biscuit and bread, dried fruit and tropical sweet fruit. Malty and fruity flavour with a yeasty hint, herbal hops and a quite bitter finish. A bit thin for what the aroma is promising

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2007
11.2 oz. bottle; 02.11.?? Malty caramel aroma with a hint of hop. Ruby apricot color with a beige head. A bit thin. Moderate carbonation. The flavor is gritty caramel, with some notes of coffee. The finish is fairly dry, and the bitter is noticeable, but not heavy. Intriguing.
