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.

Aroma: roasted crust of bread, malty. Appearance: clear amber color, poor head. Taste: low bitterness, caramel, melanoidin, slightly acid, nice malty backbone but still quite dry. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation. Overall: Classical beer, but not very outstanding. Everyone has to try.

This is my first review and tasting. Do not take it into account. Reflects a little soda ...

McWorta (544) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 17, 2014
Solid amber colour with a light toast coloured head. Aromas of nuts, almonds, marzipan, wood and tobacco develop on the nose. Softly CO2 propelled showing a light sweetness with light bitterness, slender body offering a light bitter finish which last a short while.

aleigator (174) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2014
Red brown color with a solid head. Decent aroma of malt, toffee and burned bread, with hints of funkiness. Fresh, malty beginning with lots of flavor, mostly malts, bread, hints of sugar, warming feeling on the palate, which vanishes way too soon. Nearly no aftertaste at all, only short bitterness in the end adding complexity to the malts. This is an easy to drink Alt, which may fit for warm summer days, but all in all it lacks complexity an has a too-light body for my taste. The malts are too sweet, therefore the beer lacks balance, which should be provided by the bitterness.
