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.

bastarda (385) - Freiburg, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2015
BI, Oct 3rd; Some roast, sweet white grapes, metal and some caramels in aroma; not a lot of carbonation, on a watery palate caramel, metal and roast turn up again; quite a nice roasty bitter finish. All in all not a good beer.

caribou43 (467) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2015
It is a good beer. The taste is dry with hop and malt, we could feel something like torrefied. The colour is brown and dark and the foam is weak like the carbonation. A perfect beer to start a barbecue.

rgf001 (313) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2015
An alt mass-lagerized. Faint hop and pils malt aroma. Bitterness has been reduced and smoothed out to a taste similar to a more bitter Shiner bock. Clean Dry finish. If you want an alt closer to a Bud this is your beer. Not mine of course.

Slautar (444) - Gdañsk, POLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Reklamówka prawdę Ci powie. Piwo nie jest gorzkie jak wiele innych ale. Nie posiada silnego posmaku. Rzeczywiście jest zaskakująco pijalne jak na swoją ciemną barwę i możesz je pić całą noc. Problem tylko w tym, że z tej nocy nic nie zapamiętasz bo nie ma nic do zapamiętania.

Moravius (1049) - Beijing, CHINA - JUL 4, 2015
Flasche (50 cl) von einem Kiosk im Ruhrpott. - Helles Rotbraun, klar, reichlich beigefarbener Schaum. - In der Nase mildes, angenehmes Karamel- und Röstmalz, Btotkruste und schwache hopfenwürzige Herbe. - Antrunk mild karamellig, leicht toastig, mit mild herber Altbier-Fruchtigkeit. Mild rezent, schlank, weich im Mund. Im Abgang leicht krautige Hopfenherbe. - Alles sehr mild hier aber auch sehr rund und süffig mit fein aufeinander abgestimmten Aromen. Natürlich kein Vergleich mit den Düsseldorfer Altbier-Giganten, aber für ein Supermarkt-Bier erstaunlich gut.
