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.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Dusseldorf. Darker brown Alt. Crisp palate - quite bitter. Alright.

Pigs Ear! Clear brown beer. Whisper of hop on the nose. Crisp palate. Light malt with bitter toffee. Light hoppy fruit. Bitter aftertaste. Decent.

Papsoe (25059) - 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
