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.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2005
Small rubber stopped brown bottle purchased from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. ABV 4.5%. Hazy brown hued having a small, white diminishing head with good lacing. No discernable aroma. Average carbonation. Medium bodied dry palette that starts with sharp bitter, alcoholic taste and finishes with moderate bitter of average duration. Slight bottle leakage when bottled stored on side but carbonation and flavor seemed fine. A good drinkable beer.

Brown, clear, beige head. Aroma of toasty and nutty malt with definite leathery oxidation. Flavor is similar, nutty, malty, showing some age.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 6, 2005
Clear, dark amber color with medium sized tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, caramel, maple. Flavor is slightly bitter, creamy. A good, solid alt, but nothing amazing

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2008
(GERMAN) Pours a hazy amber / brown color with a med-tan head. The aroma is of dry fruits, brown sugar, and pepper. Taste is kind of hoppy with a roasted walnut flavor !! The finish is dry and very drinkable, nice lacing too. I must say that i enjoyed this brew very much. :)

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

Bottle. I had first had this beer in Chicago last year. Clear amber with a foamy tan head and lacing. One of the first alt. Beers I have had that is so complex. Nutty malt and a grassy hop bite. Nice beer.

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - JUN 6, 2015
330 ml bottle from Les Vignerons. Dark amber, light copper, perfectly clear, with a huge, fluffy, forever lasting off white head. Milions of bubbles streaming up. Fruity, malty and nutty nose, notes of caramel malts, hazelnuts, toffee, subtle reminiscene of baked apples and candied peaches. Taste pretty much follow suite with a little difference, there is a mild warming sensation despite no actual alchool smell in the aroma. Again caramel, slightly astringent sweetness, moderate but lingering malty and toasted bitterness. Lighter mouthfeel than what I was expecting. Average carbonation, light to medium body, slightly oily texture. I’m not a huge fan of Altbiers but this one was good, even if I’m afraid a fresher bottle would be so much better.

Rask0lnikov (751) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 12, 2016
Dark clear amber colour. Medium white round of froth on top. Hints of berries, hints of citrusses, caramel in the aroma. Hints of berries and caramel at first. Hints of citrusses and honey in the middle. Some bitterness, hints of berries in the end. Sour aftertaste.

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.

Heh, Grolsch-top bottle with a boring label. Dark reddish brown color with a nice malty aroma. The flavor was malty blending into hoppy.
