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.

Dark red and brown, good head of foam that shrinks slowly. Got good lacing. Smells hoppy, almost if not a fruity sort of hoppiness going on. Some bread. Nice hoppy fruity taste with a backbone of bread malt. Also some light caramel malt. Medium body, lightish co2. Pretty easy drinker and I love the swing tops their beers come in. Worth more purchases.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - SEP 13, 2004
Peculiar chock full of rye and carroway nose with a touch of carmel and a touch of alcohol. Firm mouthfeel with a lot of strange maltieness (more of that rye) pepper, earthy hops and a little alcohol. Very smooth and lingers a while with more maltiness.

Geruch röstig und nach deutschen Hopfen. Weniger Aroma als das Doppelsticke, aber sehr rund.

Smooth and clean, but I’m missing the complexity that some others find with this one. Grassy notes mixing together with alcohol and caramel malts. Refreshing.

Bottled poured into a Kölsch glass. US pours muddy brown with a reddish tint. The head is large and attractive. The nose is reminiscent of SweetTarts, malt and dark fruit. Altbiers are gulping beers but the alcohol in this one may deter some from gulping (but I’m happy to say I’m not detered!) Despite the sweet smell the flavor is more akin to dirt, wet grass and green hops all held together with a malty epoxy. This beer is surprisingly complex. There’s still a flavor that hits the back of your throat in the after taste that I can’t quite identify. Umm Umm Good!

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - JAN 7, 2014
The nose is spectacular. There is a malty bearing on the nose that promises richness and depth. It’s sweet but not cloying. It’s rich but not too nutty. There is a brilliant hop character on the nose that is at once both vibrant and restrained. It is as though a bountiful fruit character wants to explode from them but instead you have a perfect floral sweetness. A succulence that is the essence of the hops it self without embellishment. There is a bit of spice or pepper to the nose that is firm but not too loud.

The mouthfeel is incredible. Smooth, full of flavor and yet light. It travels with ease over the palate with the grain sporting a bit of dapper complexity even thought it does not evidence many flavors. It has a layered sweet presence that deepens and enriches the beer. It is also a dry grain that takes the mid palate. There is a bounty of hops on the palate that never evidence any fruit you can name although they seem ready to burst forth. They are sweet and delectable in and of themselves and their restraint is no loss to the perfect balance of this beer. Smooth. Not bitter although you can taste the bitter from the hops subtly as if a shadow. A touch fo alcohol grazes the palate and it is finished now.

This beer is pristine and wonderful. It is brewed with care and expertly in accord with the purity laws of 1516. A masterpiece waiting to delight you with it’s malt richness, with the bounty of the hop flower,clean and crisp as much from malt as from carbonation. Excellent!

Deep brown color with a sweet malty caramel aroma. Malty with a bit of toffee. Some musty dusty hop flavours with some good bitterness.

Pours an intresting mahogany color that is extremely clear. Head fades, but never went away completely. Super smooth malty body with hints of light crystal malt, grass, and a very slight smoke. Hops are just bitter enough to shine through the malty, nutty body. Beautiful.

When I popped the top on this one, it smelled like beer. Pretty straightforward stuff. The taste was nothing to write home about but did satisfy adequately for an Altbier. Amber hued, foamy head. Some sweetness and altogether easily drinkable.

Taste 7/8. Looks: Dark red body with a white clinging head. Aroma: Sweet Malt, roast and straw. Taste: Spicy, sticky, light to medium body. Quite a lot of ingredient. Tasty. Full flavored and easy to drink.
