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.

FishManLA (337) - Abita Springs, Louisiana, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Muddy brown color with a smallish off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly. A little bit of lacing. Clean, simple, malty nose. Dry on that palate with a delicious hoppy bitter taste. Hoppy dry finish.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
33cL bottle. Vigorous pour yields a hazy brown liquid with fairly thick tan foam that fades rapidly yet leaves decent lacing. Rich toffee like aroma, little bit of metallic earhy hoppiness in there also. Big chewy maltiness with a very dry earthy hop finish. Good stuff.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 13, 2006
Reddish tan, small off white head. Hazy. Aroma is all malt, with hints of plum and raisin. The first sip brings bitterness to the corner of the mouth. Medium body, sweet, very enjoyable.

hollardustin (327) - Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2012
Pours a hazy, dirty reddish brown color with a creamy white head. The aroma is caramel, dark fruit, and earth hops. The taste is malty with just a hint of sweetness, earthy and herbal hops, light to medium bitterness. Good carbonation. Not bad.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Crisp, wonderful body, and brisk hops. Certainly worth the money, even if you are paying a little extra for the bottle. Truly classic and really unlike anything else coming from germany. Makes me want to rent a flat in Dusseldorf.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Pours lightish redbrown with some head that disperses within a minute. Malty light caramel notes, finishes sharp hoppy. Above average, not wildly impressive. I would try again. Enjoyed chilled from bottle, poured into glass.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
33cL flip-top. Copper and clear. Medium head. Big malt aroma, some grassiness and breadiness. Wow, the flavor is so clean with the big malt and the bitterness at the end is very nice. Medium body. It is very well balanced with an excellent palate with just the right carbonation. Excellent beer! Can’t wait to finally make it to Dusseldorf.

Gmku (294) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 28, 2005
Delicious. Dark red body with creamy, almost mousse-like head. Bitter but well balanced with an earthy malt flavor. Primo, man.

Pours a dark coppery brown with hardly and head or lacing. Sweet malts, caramel, brown sugar, and cinnamon on the nose. Dark tropical fruit, malty, caramel and sugar notes, raisins, plums, earthy, bready flavors. Hardly any hoppiness. A very nice alt beer.

Thanks DarkElf! pours a clear amber color with virtually no head and no lacing at all. ARoma is extremely full of caramel and hops with hints of grass, quite smooth and enjoyable to the nose. Flavor is similar, but just not as good as the aroma. Strong caramel and grass tones through-out with a punch of hops at the end. I liked this beer, but thought the aroma was better than the flavor.
