COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Uerige Alt is Germany’s richest bitter beer. Nevertheless (or even for that reason), this legendary old-fashioned beer is so full-bodied and aromatic. Our top-class specialty has been brewed since 1862 from water, barley malt, caramel malt, roasted malt, clusters of hops - and with our very special Uerige yeast. Our Uerige Alt is regularly selected among the ten best beers in Germany. It has an alcohol content of 4.7% and a minimum freshness of eight weeks.

thanatosti (1844) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2018
50 cl. flip-top bottle @ home, bought @ Trinkgut Kleve. Clear dark amber with a huge off-white head. Caramel, hops and leather/cellar aroma. Taste is fairly bitter with a sour touch which give it a real good drinkability. Not unlike a good English bitter. Massive beer for such a modest ABV. Will drink again.

jjsint (3604) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2017
Bottle from Best One, Brackley Road, Bedford. Tawny brown, almost clear, with a film of off-white head. Caramel malt, wood chips, medicinal herbs in the aroma. Bittersweet taste with an astringent hoppy flavour in the latter half of the sip. Walnuts and green hoppy touches on the aftertaste. I like a good Altbier and was excited to try this, but found it a little underwhelming if solid.

Pours mahogany with thick, foamy head. Aroma is dried fruit, cut grass and toffee. Taste is caramel, bitter hops and a biting, sour finish. Not the most drinkable beer.

EvNa (603) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2017 Bottle. Bottle date 04-12-2017, bbf date 29-01-2018. Color: Clear amber to copper, firm off-white head. Taste: Malty, notes of caramel, mildly bitter. Lightly hints of nuts and hints of wood when the beer is getting a little bit warmer. Very smooth, creamy. Nice balance. Very easy drinkable. Wonderful classic beer. Above medium body, soft carbonation.

MikeBeermaster (1169) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - DEC 6, 2017
Harshy herbal aroma with some grainy back and some bread, maybe little bit of sulfur and honey. Clear amber in the glass with medium head. Taste is dry with notes of grain, herbal harshy hoppiness with toasty, bready notes. Maybe little bit astringent, but in the long run is really nice beer.

hauxe (1017) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2017
From the bottle. Filled on Oct 9, best by Dec 4. Dark brown with a thin, porous crown that lingers. Aroma is, well, disappointing. Roasted caramel for sure but also earthy tones, trash bin, and a whiff of cat litter. Taste is mildly bitter, a touch citric, lightly metallic at the finish. At a subtle level there’s a lot going on here, not all of it good, but there is a steady, pleasant roasted bitterness that keeps things from slipping out of hand. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. Interesting, but I drank better alts back in the day.

4.2
Grumpelmies (431) - GERMANY - NOV 29, 2017
Bottle. Copper/amber with a beautiful white/beige head. Aroma of malts, nuts and spicy hops. Taste is malty, nutty and bitter. Biscuits, caramel, grains. Long lingering hoppy bitter aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Very balanced. Creamy and smooth. Delicious and so easy but rewarding to drink.
