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.

[bottle] Murky brown appearance with a very minimal off-white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Nutty malt flavors, with more caramel/toffee sweetness. Very roasty finish, with a slick mouthfeel.

Bill Becker (711) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 23, 2014
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.

valpoaj (705) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 16, 2006
Intense and memorable honey aroma with a cloudy pour resembling a hefe. Relatively bitter initial taste evolves into a smooth and enjoyable finish. Quickly dissolving head leaves a beautiful lacing along the edges of the mug. My first known experience with an Altbier was a memorable one...would recommend this brew! An extremely complex finish gives a strong overtone of bread flavor accentuated by hints of orange and brown sugar

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Bottled on 6-11 says 6% alc. Bottle opened with a POP! Pours a dark strawberry blond with floaties and rocky lasting head. Sweet malty aroma similar to a dunkel with a nice addition of herbal hops. The flavor is grainy semi sweet with a healthy barley kick and herbal noble hops with a drying flowery finish. Carbonation is filling making it a meal in a glass and brightening the murky grainy palate and lingering hop flavors. Sort of a dark German pale ale to reference something. Nice brew, very palatable and robust for the lower abv.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Here’s a winner. Pours a medium brown with a nice beige head. The aroma is huge of toasted bread and malt. In the flavor there is lots of bread and toasted malt flavor with balancing bitterness that tends to linger.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Pours a murky brown with a large, active off-white heat, which simmers down to a lasting film of bubbles and a network of lace. Aroma is faint, what’s there is resinous nuts, a bit of caramel. Flavor begins with resinous malts and hops bitterness, a lot of nuts and tea here. Some frutiness accompanies the alcohol warmth later on, but the beer remains lightly bitter throughout, with the nuts remaining on the linger. Warm on the palate, very soft and sudsy. Good, but missing the caramel that makes the ordinary Uerige alt such a wonderful sessionable malt bomb.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Pours red with a very small white head. Toasted malt and brown sugar aroma, with a touch of almonds. The toasted malt is found in the flavor behind some diacetyl. A light herbal hoppiness rounds out the taste. Good stuff.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Swingtop bottle pours a clear copper body that supports a lush beige head. Mostly malt aroma with toffee and caramel, complimented by spicy and floral hops. Taste is a pleasant balance of caramel toasted malty sweetness and bitter hops for balance. The hops seem to have notes of soft fruit, florals and a vague earthiness. Really nice alt.
