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.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2008
11.2 oz bottle from Sam’s Wine (South Loop, Chicago, IL). Pours a very dark cloudy copper with a nice off white bubbly head that sticks around and laces a bit. Aromas are floral, light european hops with some lemony notes and some hints of bready dough. Initial taste is bitter, skunky malt and noble hops dominant with a bitter floral hoppiness and the very pleasant malt. Very nice. Medium bodied and refreshing yet bitter. Doughy bready yeastiness yet still hoppy and bitter. Yum. A nice brew and I’m sure it didn’t travel well leaving a re-rate pending if I can catch some fresh stuff.

ARMed (625) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2008
A little too tart on the palate, but otherwise I am enjoying the slight smokey hoppy finish and bitter flavor.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2008
beautiful brown amber body, healthy cream head, sweet sharp munich aroma, smooth mild hop bitters, great beer but severely over priced in my opinion (but i’m a cheap, poor college student)

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 29, 2008
500ml fliptop bottle: poured orange/brown with a nice thick tan head. Yeasty, bread dough aroma. Slight hops. Lightly carbonated. Bitter hops dominate this beer with just a bit of nuttiness and caramel. Quite a bitter finish. Good.

bhensonb (14986) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 10, 2008
11.2 oz; bottled on 05.07. Dark caramel aroma. Ruby color with fine particles (or something) dispersed throughout. Beautiful. Beige head. Seems full bodied, and the carbonation is creamy. Flavor is something more than caramel. Sort of roasted. There’s bitter. Very good finish as the bitter builds up somewhat. Actually fairly bitter. Good tasting drink.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - MAY 8, 2008
This has a great mouthfeel, very creamy and rich. Loaded with caramel and toffee notes, with a slightly mineral quality in the finish. I would drink this again.

Brown in color with a chocolate, caramel and slightly earthy aromas. Caramel and nutty flavors with some cherry. Smooth bitter finish with a nice silky texture.

Bottle. Love these kind of bottles. I’m sure it leads to a higher cost. Still, it is an excellent beer. At 4.7% it is the best tasting lower alcohol beers I have ever had. Highly recommend it.

mjs (7103) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 15, 2008
(From long backlog in my notebook. Bottle in One Pint Pub on 2007-12-31.) Darkish colour. Its body is full and so is its taste. Malts can be tasted clearly and there is some hints of hops, too. I liked this.
