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.

bottleman's rating

bottleman (14) - Idar-Oberstein, Rhineland-Palatinate, - JAN 14, 2010
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 %

GhostS (334) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 17, 2017
Aromă slabă, cu multe fructe ușor fermentate și flori, dulceață de caise cu miere, nuanțe grele de hamei pământos. Gust ușor dulce, puțin amar, cu malț caramelizat, fructe fermentate, ceva fructe alterate, hamei pământos. Bună.

Piw (1110) - Rüsselsheim, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2017
Frisch gezapft. Klar und bernsteinfarben mit mittelgroßer Schaumkrone. Muffig. Leicht muffig. Leichter Körper. Wässrig.

Tried this one part of LCBO spring program. Bitter and dry, lack a bit of depth. Tried it, done.

gegwilson (3676) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2017
Cask at the brewery. Brown with a good foamy cream head. Malty toast aroma. The taste is toast with a bitter metallic finish. Nice.

bunget (964) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2017
Bottle. Clear amber-dark copper body, medium dense beige head with great retention and lots of lacing. Yeasty fresh aroma: lots of yeast, dough, green apples, herbs, caramel and bread. Taste of bitter herbs, bread, molasses and biscuits. Chewy, refreshing and refined.

Oxytocin (125) - AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2017
bottle, dark amberm small off white head. odour: caramel, molasses, grapejuice, honey. light sweetness, medium bitterness in the beginning. very dry finish, moderate to heavy bitterness in finish, soft carbonisation, medium to light body.

PowY (714) - AUSTRIA - MAY 26, 2017
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber to copper with a small slightly beige head. The aroma is medium malty (bread, some caramel) with a light fruitiness (plums and grapes). Light to medium watery body with a low carbonation a light sweetness and a medium bitterness (heavy in the finish). The taste starts malty - sweet grains, bread, caramel, honey, some roasted notes, some dark fruits, some cardboard and a lingering hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Tjeerd (518) - 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.

thellgren (1030) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Several 0,2 l draght @ Zum Uerige, Düsseldorf (April 21, 2017). Appearance is brown and clear. Taste is hoppy and floral, just a little bit watery, but still complicated to keep it interesting.

Alpha10 (745) - 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
