COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carnival comes but once a year - and you can only enjoy Sticke beer at Uerige twice a year. It contains more malt and hops and has a higher alcoholic content than normal Altbier. And our guests appreciate it! In earlier days it used to be whispered hand over mouth that Uerige was serving Sticke again because the master brewer had portioned the ingredients too generously. With today’s fully-automated operation, this could not happen. So Sticke beer is brewed intentionally - and this certainly doesn’t negatively effect either its quality or taste.

The two dates every year are always the same. The third Tuesday in January and October are the two Sticke days.

Craftakt (240) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2017
Leider kein positives Spezial im Vergleich zum Standard. Schwere Malzaromen mit einer spürbaren metallischen Alkoholnote und einem kratzig bitteren Abgang.

tnkw01 (1857) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle. Nice amber color with a two finger head. Wonderful balance of hop and malt in both taste and aroma. Nice.

3.4
Tayeth (709) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2017
Fruchtige Hopfenaromen und Malz. Der Geschmack ist sehr ausgewogen, fruchtig und malzig. Etwas kratzig und astringierend im Abgang, die starke Bittere kommt erst hinterher.

flying_pig (1686) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2017
330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer, Glasgow (£4.10):
An interesting one from Uerige & one that was definitely better than their Uerige Alt that I tried last, although it wasn’t exactly miles ahead. The beer had a slightly more hoppy feel to it with some floral touches on top of the caramel sweetness & toffee flavours. There was still some earthy touches with this one as well though & the balance seemed a little better too but I still don’t think it’s a beer that I’ll be running back to again unless I find myself in Düsseldorf at some point; still it was well worth trying & it’s another decent altbier to say I’ve tried.

ischas (867) - - JUL 26, 2017
0,33 l Bügelflasche. 6,0% vol. Braunes, trübes Bier, cremefarbener Schaum, akzeptable Gardine. Riecht nach Röstaroma, malzig süß. Schmeckt malzig süß, nach Brombeeren mit bitterem Abgang.

3.2
Ritzn (1984) - GERMANY - JUL 26, 2017
Brown with little beige head. Aroma is canned peach toffee slight roast and light fruit. Taste is intense sweet almonds toffee with sweetsour fresh fruit(peach). Drinkable but very strange. Franzi hates it.

3.5
Scopey (16273) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle from Utobeer. It pours hazy deep brown with a decent off-white head. The aroma is rich malty action, caramel, brown bread, fruit cake, molasses, toffee and toasted nut. The taste is dry, bitter - sweet, rich wood, leather, varnish, spice, resin, touch of spice, earth, toast and fruit cake with a drying and woody finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good classic example of the style.

3.5
Kita (2302) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 4, 2017
Swing top bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy amber brown color with thick creamy tan-like head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel, flowers, honey, grass and dried fruit. Taste starts with medium sweet caramel and floral, following is grassy, mouthfeel is warming, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium to full body, thick texture and average carbonation in palate. Bon Jovi’s "Stick to your guns" comes on my mind with this one...
