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.

Clear amber color with a dense egg shell white head, nice lacing. Has a cheesy, earthy musty smell. Medium body. Decent taste of caramel malts and herbal hops. Not sure where that smell came from, nothing like the taste. Not too bad.

Bottled. Wow, altbiers always sort of amaze me, it’s like what the helll is this supposed to taste like? Dark brown lots of head, weird alty taste. How did those dusseldorfers come up with this?

Had this a few times, it’s another Olaf S. beer. The first couple of times I tried this I found it to be incredibly bitter, not hoppy, but BITTER. I persisted, not sure why, but gradually I found myself getting to like this, a distinctive brew, not sure where you’d get it these days tho!

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
Pours a deep brown amber with a small creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet, with caramel, light cocoa and rye bread. Fin, but rather light maouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, rye bread, light alcohol and a lot of caramel. Quite a dry and bitter finish. Very good German - especially considering the ABV!

50 cL bottle, from trade with DerDoppelbock. Pours slight hazy to clear amber with a diminishing white head. Dark and dry caramel malt aroma. Flavour is medium dry, slight metallic, strong dark caramel note lending itself into a slight spice note. Mild spicy malt in the finish with a decent level of bitterness.

First off, the bottle is awesome, really distinctive, ok enough about branding and marketing.....this beer is what beer geeks oglie about, complex and flavorful - really tasty. Take a sip and you get a burst of malt, like a double bock, but then as the beer cascades to the back of your throat it switches to a bitter, smooth and somewhat hoppy. Wow, a real treat....The play action pass of beers.
