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.

MikeBeermaster (1082) - 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 (967) - 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.

Grumpelmies (402) - 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.

Butelka 330ml. Ciemno-brunatny,mahoniowy kolor. Piana biała, gęsta,o drobnych pęcherzach,ładnie zdobi szkło. Duża dawka ziarnistych posmaków , trochę trawy i siana, słód,karmel. Troche zbyt wodniste.Goryczkowa palona nutą na finiszu. Niezłe

Al club de tast de l'Olut (Sabadell)... Inicialment sembla ser dolça però et deixa un final amarg interessant... No deixa de ser comercial, però!

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 M'encanta aquest final cabroncete amarg, que et penses que és aigüeta però no! Tenia una sorpresa per tu! Fàcil de beure però atractiva :)
