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.

Cristobal37 (1084) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 2, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2017 Pop top bottle. Dank basement and grains on the nose. Very bitter on the back of the tongue like earl grey tea. Light bodied easy drinking but this bitterness is extremely dry and leaves a strong comanding impression on the palate. And while the palate is not wimpy, it?s not very good either. Not what I expected, the taste is not pleasant at all. Curious what the Sticke and Doppelsticke will be like.

Freaky_tiki (1201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. Well clearly the Alts I’ve tried from Ontario brewers are a bust. This is clarifying & educational. Deep brown pour with a mushy foam cap. Thick grain, with a deep earthy middle & one of the longest & most intriguing bitter finishes I’ve had in a long time. It’s really clean & distinct & unique. You need to try this.

DerWeg (1659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle from lcbo, pours a big bubble head. Has real old school style with punchy yeast and a herbal almost medicinal dryness. Somewhere a pale cookie malt trying to poke through. Seems like a beer I would need many more of to understand?

cattaneopapa (385) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2017
330ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear deep amber colour with one finger of lasting head. Soapy lacing clinging to the side of the glass. On the nose I get some fruity aromas like citrus and grapes. Also bread and a whiff of caramel is present. Taste has a hoppy backbone with notes of plain crackers, grass, and black peppers which leads to a dry and spicy finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. It’s not my cup of tea...Too dry and spicy for a beer with low alcohol content.

john44 (3034) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Draft. Dark amber beer. Roasty fruity (citrus) malts (toffee, caramel, burnt sugar) balanced by crisp floral and grassy hops. Good malt/hop balance. Nice bitterness. Dry bitter hoppy finish. (2008)

BeardedAvenger (661) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle at home. From Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Sweet caramel and grass aroma. Dark Amber. Fluffy off-white head. Light sweetness through to a tangy bitterness that continues in to the long finish. Malt and citrus with a honey undercurrent. Light bodied. Impactful carbonation with a softness to the body. A dry element combines with the carbonation on the tongue. Decent if overly carbonated.

Very fresh bottle from Erzengel (euro local swap 4/2016), many thanks! Pours amber with an off white head. Earthy, herbal, caramel, light sour notes, medium bitter and fairly bitter finish. Nice.
