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.

Dark brown slight orange with big frothy head. Aroma of medicinal grass, raisins spicy flowers/soap. Tastes like hoisin sauce, (browned sugar and acidity), leather. Robust bitterness herbal hops that melds well with roast flavors and alcohol. Not sweet. Dry but not too dry on the palate. Would be excellent with a steak.

Tjeerd (505) - GERMANY - MAY 19, 2017
Altbeer is not really my thing (miss the carbonation and the mouthfeel) but the taste is indeed full-bodied and complex.

Alpha10 (738) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
2017/05/02 - Pours a clear, brown-orange colour with a frothy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is caramel, bready, yeast, banana, dark fruits with a subtle hint of smoke and grassy hops. Taste is light toffee, bready notes and grassy hops. Mouthfeel is medium to full with lightly biting carbonation and a drying, roasted finish. Lots of character and well put together. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Listigovers (1101) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2017
Very nice appearance, reddish bronze with a tan creamy and fluffy head. Smell like caramel and bread. Taste is lots of big malts, good balance of dry and sweet, creamy and medium bodied, very gentle palate with the low alcohol content, a very refined beer with depth.

bastarda (496) - Freiburg, GERMANY - APR 27, 2017
Easy drinking yet with a bitter hoppy bite at the finish. Subtle caramel malts and near-coffee like roasted malts, some herbal/woody aspects too. Understated perfection and balance.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2017
Couleur cuivre vieilli, arborant peu de mousse, cette version Dusseldorf-oise de "vieille bière" est peu odorante (malts rôtis, bois, caramel et pêche), mais elle est plus fonceuse en bouche : une bonne amertume, qui vient couper des malts ronds et caramélisés (cassonnade). Peu de complexité, mais son mordant gustatif compense facilement. Version classique d’un classique, superbe et envoûtant, presque sans faute pour le style.
