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.

Sammy (11977) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2005
easy drink, with lots of carmel and malt but also bitterness, nicely hopped, citrus. Brown with Big head that lasts, and provides creamy ball of foam on way down. Malty and citrus aroma. Finishes with pleasant lingering sweetness

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - NOV 30, 2005
Cloudy brown/amber color,small off white head that faded slowly and lef ta decent lace behind.The aroma was malty caramel with some nice hints of fruit and maybe some dryed fruit in there as well with a decent but light hop showing.The flavor came off much the same as the aroma with a nice bitterness in the end to round things out.Pretty nice brew that makes me wish these we’re more readily available in my area.

rickgordon (3870) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2005
Bottled. Pale brown colour. Fruity toffee nose. Light roasty flavour along with notes of toffee and tobacco. Dry backbone. Extremely long finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear brown with a reddish hue and a fine, creamy head. Lightly roasted malty with notes of caramel. But a sharp bitterness dominates this - almost too overpoweringly bitter. 080303

bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a hazy chestnut brown body with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, raisins, mild florals, licorice, cola, and maple syrup. Taoste malt flavor with caramel, dark fruit, and a hint of burnt and bitterness in the finish.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2005
Brown/red with a frothy head and big spots of lace. Malty and bitter aromas. Some earthy and nuttiness to the nose. Flavor is mostly bitter with hints of nuts and warm malts. A little astringent. A bit of fruitiness to it. The finish is sharply bitter. Not too bad.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2005
I suppose I was spoiled by the doppel-sticke, but the regular version of this alt did nothing for me. Yes, there was some clean bitterness and some light fruity (grapey-pear) notes, but the overall effect was underwhelming. Nice color and head, though.

Another favorite of mine. I enjoy the Sticke only a little more than this basic version.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a medium diminishing offwhite head. Very good aroma of noble hops, caramel, spices and fruits (pears). Very good flavor, particulary spicy with noble hops, caramel and fruits. The body has a light to medium thickness with an oily texture and prickly carbonation. I’ve never been a big fan of alts but recently I took notice of the potential of this style, which is a good thing since this one is excellent.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 At the source. Gravity fed out of the wooden barrel, how can I not give it a 5 on appearance. Served in a 25cl glass. Whenever you get a beer the waiters put a tick mark on your coaster and you settle up in the end. Nice white head on top. Amber color beer. Somewhat more bitter than some of the other Alts in Düsseldorf. There is very little hop aroma. Goes down dry and bitter.
