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.

Tap. A pretty plain Alt, not a bad one though. Typical malts, color, and carbonization, but rather thin.

hauxe (445) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2015
Starts rich with a creamy head that quickly fades without a trace. Looks flat, but carbonation is present. An almost overly harsh bitterness arises as you progress. Hints of malts and hops, but one-dimensionally bitter near the end. Disappointing.

Cimbasso (772) - - NOV 25, 2015
Sampled from a bottle at Bierschenke, City of London. Copper coloured with a white head. Aroma is mostly of caramel, and the taste is caramel with nutty overtones. Served too cold, direct from the fridge. Quite sweet and with a rather watery palette. Not much bitterness. An easy-drinking beer without much character, surprisingly underpowered for an altbier.

Can in Frankfurt. Golden body with medium head. Nose is corny, floral and slightly metallic. Taste is eggy, malty and hops. Smooth and creamy. Pretty good.

birrabona (221) - ITALY - NOV 12, 2015
Sono un amante delle ale ambrata. Seppur apprezzi che anche in Germania si producano , trovo questa birra fatta troppo con profilo industriale. Il gusto si ferma dopo 30 secondi. Ambrata rubino. Abbastanza secca. Fruttata di caramello. Tostata. Corpo medio. Meglio una dunkel .

Grisza77 (581) - Poznań, POLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Ciemno miedziane, klarowne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w postaci warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat mało intensywny, czuć tylko lekki karmel. W smaku dużo lepiej, karmel dużo bardziej intensywny plus przyjemna ziołowość. Goryczka średnia, przyjemna, krótka, ziołowa. Ogólnie dość udane piwo, w smaku czuć wyraźnie chmiel co dla mnie jest duży plusem, bardzo pijalne.

Arek (980) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - OCT 24, 2015
23.12.12: Bottle 0.5 l.
Ciemno miedziane piwo o grubej, lecz nietrwałej pianie. W smaku bardzo fajne, słodowe, chmielowe i goryczkowe - idealne wyważenie proporcji.
