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.

nealblind (1965) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - MAY 24, 2013
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.

Bottle from Das Alpenhaus. Poured into alt glass, medium caramel color with high, rocky head. Gentle toasty aroma, nuts, dark caramel, brown bread. Taste follows, deliciously smooth, faint sweetness, nuts, molasses. Sublime. A tasty treat.

Where Purchased: 330ml bottle from the LCBO Consumed: from a Draught glass Aroma: Smells malty. Not much else there. Appearance : filtered medium brown with lots of head that disappears immediately. No lacing. Taste: a little bitter for my liking. Not much malt or sweet flavour. Very bland other then the hops. Palate : medium body. Bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation. Overall: It was laking flavour. Too bland, other then hops. Kind of what I expected from a beer with 4.7% ABV. I was glad to try but will not buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

TomHendriksen (727) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2017
Geprobeerd met Roelzie1986. Het is een donkerbruin bier met een medium schuimkraag. Het schuim is wel snel weg. Het heeft een moutige smaak, wat tonen van rozijnen lijkt.

thejackpacker (584) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2017
Bottle from getrankmarkt. Shame that the bottle wasnt properly sealed. It fizzed over when moving and so the beer was flat as a pancake so a little unfair. As a flat beer it was actually quite nice, very smooth, very rich like a delicious English ESB.

kraddel (8761) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2017
Tap at their pub. Pours very dark, csramelly brown. Decent white head ( extremely stable and fluffy ) smell is full, caramelly, some darker malts , mild ewrthy features. Taste is full, mildly metallic,bit bitter, refreshing hop touch, mild caramelly, malty base. Very low carbo, as it is served from a wooden barrel, which makes it very easy to drink.
