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.

ALIBALI (1458) - Kiel, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2016
Optisch und in der Nase etwas enttäuschend, zu klar und nur verhalten Aromen zu erschnuppern. Das ändern sich dann erstaunlich schnell mit dem extrem hopfenbitteren Trunk. Toll. Dezent säuerlich und schön würzig. 0,2/1,90€ vom Hahn im UERIGE Düsseldorf.

(Tap) Es hat eine dunkle, kupferne bis braune Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer fast weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist malzig, eher trocken, warm und etwas nach Keller. Der Geschmack ist fast heftig, trocken mit einer angenehmen bittere die sich über den ganzen Mundraum verteilt. Im Nachgeschmack ist die bittere kräuterig und prickelnd
