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.

Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is spicy, herbal and pine hops with biscuit and straw malt and a clean lager character. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Cristobal37 (994) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 6, 2017
Bottle, a bit of a gusher. Hazy brown, muddy water. Roasted malt, black tea, doughy basement aroma. Smooth dry bitter finish. Much better than the plain Uerige, but not very complex.

BrewWhatIWant (141) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2017
Pours light reddish-brown with a thin offwhite head. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is bitter with a touch of sweetness. There are notes of earthy hops up front along with a bit of nutty malt and red fruit and musty yeast. Body is light with medium-low carbonation. It’s a bit like an extra hoppy English bitter with some continental yeastiness. Very interesting!

waldbraeu (17) - - FEB 24, 2017
quite light-colored head, dark brown color, clear, fruity hop-aromas, tastes like a mix of a modern pale ale and the regular altbier-style, also some fruity yeast-flavors i can make out. not my taste. my bottle says alc. 6,0% vol

ebone1988 (1758) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Aroma is caramel, earthy hops, malt, bready, bitter, slightly metallic. Appearance is brownish red, off white to light tan head, somewhat hazy. Taste is bitter, malt, bready, earthy hops, not as much caramel as I expected, definitely more bitter than sweet. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, bitter malt and earthy hop aftertaste. Overall, this is good but I prefer the Doppel Sticke.

john44 (2986) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Orangey Amber. Very malty (buttery, caramelly). Roasty (burnt sugar). Sour fruit (berries). Earthy, woody flavours. Sweetish leading to dry bittering hop finish. (2008)
