3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is the second occasion that I have had Zum Uerige Sticke in the bottle. Both were imported to the US. In fact, my beer was dated 10.25 meaning that it was a 2005 bottle. Bloody shame!Needless to say, this beer does not seem to hold up very well in the bottle, especially after one year. The aroma had pronounced notes of prune that must have been from oxidation. The malt presence was considerable as was the hop flavor and bitterness. The balance of the clean flavors begs this to be sampled from its birthplace.

Drank it side by side with the normal Alt from Uerige. This one is more my style, even if Alt isn’t really my style at all. In any case, this one had more everything which can sometimes backfire, but in this case it made it better. Sweeter but more bitterness, more hop aroma, still a hint of fruitcake or something, but the other bits kinda balance it out. If I ever found myself in Dusseldorf, I would probably drink one or two of these before I started to think about Kölsch.

Bottle. This is a great beer. A real stylistic classic that is best enjoyed with roast meats and grainy mustard.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap on Sticke Day. Pours a deep orange/brown color with a lofty thick tan cap. The smell is roasted malt, floral and citric hops and fruity. The taste is floral, roasty, with a sweet malt backbone. It has the above notes hop characteristics and some licorice coming through later while ending dry and slightly bitter. The body is light/medium and the carbonation is elegant and superbly done. A great altbier and especially wonderful when it is fresh from the barrel.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
on tap at the brewery. The beer starts malty, nice hop aromas appear to the middle part, a great combination of floral hops with the malty Alt-character. The aftertaste is long, roasted malt, bittering hops and still floral hop notes together with the full bodied Alt-taste! Also slightly sweetish-fruity <br>
--> A great brew!

This pours a muddy brown color with a slight beige head. The aroma is slightly malty but that’s about it. It has a very interesting malt flavor to it. There are hints of caramel as well as a little sourness. Lot of unique, hard to describe flavors to describe, but interesting never-the-less.
