Uerige Altbier isn’t cheap at $3.95 per 330 ml bottle at the LCBO, but it does come in a really cool bottle.

It’s skinny and has a very long neck. The clerk at the store commented, “Well this bottle is unique.” The beer itself is alright, though not the greatest beer I’ve ever had, which is what the online commentary would suggest it should be. Uerige pours a chocolate colour with a thick beige head. It’s quite carbonated The flavour has hints of malt and dark chocolate and just a splash of cherry. The finish balances the flavour with its bitterness.
