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.

Das obergärige Spezial Alt wird aus Gersten,- Karamell- und Röstmalz gebraut. Es ist das an Bitterstoffen reichte Bier Deutschlands. Das bernsteinfarbene Bier duftet zart nach Malz, schmeckt trotz der Bitterkeit ausgewogen und verabschiedet sich mit einem zarten Rauchton. Ein perfektes Alt! Alkohol: 4,7 %

Al club de tast de l'Olut (Sabadell)... Inicialment sembla ser dolça però et deixa un final amarg interessant... No deixa de ser comercial, però!

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2017 M'encanta aquest final cabroncete amarg, que et penses que és aigüeta però no! Tenia una sorpresa per tu! Fàcil de beure però atractiva :)

[9435-20170715] 330mL swing-top bottle. Grape grains aroma. Clear, amber brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Toasted woody grains and fruity malt flavour. Medium-full body is a little boozy. Average. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

martpez (335) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2017 Wonderful full head. Wow this is much tastier then I was expecting! Dry bitter hops with rich dark malts. Very hoppy for such an old beer the creamy head somewhat counter acts the bitterness. The is also a touch of sweet fruitness before the dominant dry finish. Hides its complexity but its there. Its perfect in a kolsh glass would not want to drink a pint in one go! Nice

Aggiebob (1299) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 20, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Bottle. It poured a toffee brown with a large beige head and nice lacing. The aroma is caramel malt. The taste is lightly sweet.

stevoj (5585) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 16, 2017
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.
