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.

ebone1988 (1856) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20, for the book. Aroma is caramel, floral, earthy hops, sweet, potpourri. Appearance is darker amber brown, light tan head, hazy. Taste is balanced, caramel, earthy hops, metallic, sweet malt, very crushable. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, soft, earthy hop and caramel aftertaste. Overall, this is very true to style.

330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The fucking book. The pour is a darker ruby tinted brown color with a huge cream colored head that falls slowly leaving a pretty soapy lace. The aroma is much grainier than I was expecting. There is a sweet malt and an interesting chocolate happening that I’m not overly fond of. The it’s dry and powdery. The flavor is sweet and metallic. There is a light malt and a little fruit present. It’s just sweet malt and metallic lager yeast. There is a hint of dirty earthy hop. Damn. The mouth feel is thin and light with a bigger carbonation, but it’s still thin. The aftertaste is sweet and metallic malts. It’s not awful, but it’s not the best.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Chestnut brown with foam head. Nut, caramel, malt and some hops in the nose. Fresh and clean malty with a tiny aggressive touch and a calm but nice and present bitterness. Bitter dry and malty aftertaste.

ALIBALI (1989) - 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
