**** Michael Jackson’s Pocket Guide to Beer, p 36:
“UERIGE …is the most assertive, complex and characterful of the Alts. 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.”
