DIEBELS Alt is brewed according to the German Purity Law of 1516. Under this "Reinheitsgebot", only four ingredients are allowed: Barley malts, hops, yeast, and water. The dark-roasted special malt lends DIEBELS its unmistakable amber glow.

Dark and Delicious. For a dark, flavorful beer, DIEBELS is surprisingly light and drinkable - a beer you can enjoy all night long. It isn't bitter like many ales, and it doesn't have the strong aftertaste of certain imports.

Bière allemande dont la brasserie fait partie d’Inbev … Grand bien leur en fasse !!! Niveau abv de 4,9 % pour 50 cl, brassée selon le Reinheitsgebot. Grand bien leur en fasse !!! Couleur brun caramel, pour ne pas dire plus. Clarté d’une transparence pareille à l’eau. Grand bien leur en fasse !!! Bulles fines un peu partout, disparates. Mousse beige clair qui tombe bien vite, et laisse le tout parfaitement plat … Arômes de caramel artificiel, sucre brun de canne, riz, froment, édulcorant. 1ère bouche liquide sur du malt grillé, caramel, touche de fumée. Arrière-bouche de bête pils. 2ème où l’on ne trouve vraiment rien, un peu de malt et houblon en désordre. Arrière-bouche fade. 3ème médiocre, plate, vulgaire. Arrière-bouche pour tout dire : moche. Longueur nulle. Jambes lisses. Alcool sans allure, il se moque de son travail comme de l’an 40 … Finale sans nom. CONCLUSION : encore un genre allemand qui ne sert à rien !! Mais on l’aura essayé … ben voilà, comme on dit à Liège (de la Jupiler …).

On tap at "Alex restaurant" in Berlin - Intense caramel, butterscotch and raisin on the nose. Flavor is light, with flavors of butterscotch, caramel and dark fruits. Nice and dry finish with a balanced bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On trip back to Munster, actually forgot grocery stores were closed on Sundays, so didn’t go to one to get crates of beer on Saturday. Then driving back on Sun, took a wrong turn and stumbled upon a gas station c-store...and it turns out we were back across the German border slightly! So grabbed a few beers, including Diebels. Classic alt look and feel. Maybe missing a bit of depth and freshness vs. the legends in Dusseldorf. But solid.

On tap at the Lufthansa Senator Lounge at Düsseldorf Airport. (DUS) Clear light amber with a large head. Soft with malt, some dried fruit, nuts and hints of caramel. The finish was dry. Easy to drink. Really nice to found an Altbier in an airline lounge.

A good Alt! Slight aroma of chocolate, a red brown appearance and a light sweet taste.

JorgeLee (1353) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle in Dusseldorf airport lounge, served a little warm. Chestnut colour, quite high carbonation. Too many bottled ales especially in England taste a bit like this, overfizzy, some bitterness, toasty bitter malt, this one relatively clean yeast profile. Fine, drinkable, unremarkable, hopefully next time in Dusseldorf will have time to find it on tap.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Clear dark amber/light brown with an off-white head. Malty, very slightly smoked, aroma with some caramel. Taste is semi-bitter and the body is thin but fitting for the style.
