Uerige "Sticke"

Style: Altbier
Uerige Obergaerige Hausbrauerei, Duesseldorf, Germany

**** Michael Jackson’s Pocket Guide to Beer, p 36:
“Düsseldorfer Altbier is one of Germany’s great beer styles. Uerige Alt is in my view the finest example of the style, and one of Germany’s truly great beers. I love it for its big, spicy hop aroma; its firm, malty, middle; and its confidently dry, appetising, finish. No short cuts, no compromises: a beer that punches it weight. Zum Uerige Sticke beautifully retains this balance. It is smooth, complex, elegant and a wonderful aperitif. A generous beer, with a touch of luxury.”

The unusual name derives from olden days, when the guests would whisper ("stickum" being a dialect term for whispering) that the master brewer must have been a little too generous when weighing out the ingredients.
