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.

BiddleBrau (1168) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
poured a cloudy brown with fluffy head. Hint of caramel malt aroma. Clean mellow flavor. Well balanced with light malt flavor and minimal hop bite and finishes smooth. But what’s with the cloudy appearance???

Bottle. Red brown color with a medium frothy tan head. Fruity nose, citrus and grapes along with roasted note and a touch of caramel. Medium bitter taste, light balancing sweetness. Medium carbonation and body. Flavor is fruity and hoppy as well, stronger malt notes, roasted and caramel and a touch of sherry and dark fruits. Bitter dry and warming finish. Light aftertaste, bitter and fruity.

Bamsen78 (5057) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle, to celebrate my 4th anniversary of joining RateBeer. Pours hazy dark copper brown with very little in the way of a head, just som off-white bubbles on the surface. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with fruity hints and touches of caramel. Dusty and estery flavour with notes of malt and hops and touches of fruit. Mild, dusty and estery aftertaste with acidic hints. Very low carbonation. Not bad at all, just surprisingly flat.

MiP (15296) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle, 6.0%. Malty aroma, syrupy and slightly fruity. Hazy dark brown colour. Small creamy white head. The flavour is malty with a weak caramelly note and a slightly spicy hoppiness. A little watery for the ABV, and also a thin mouthfeel.
