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.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
My extraordarily vague idea of Alt, never having drunk any before, was of some smooth, light (in colour and body) creation, just one step removed from bog standard lager; what I got was something smooth, surprisingly dark, sweetish, malty and very drinkable; reminded me of a south-western English bitter; distinctive and impressive.

Icedwarf (683) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
Helder bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zoet, lichte rooksmaar met sporen van caramel. Blijft redelijk lang hangen, erg goed bier.

gorkogrlo (219) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle 0.5 l. Amber color, medium head. Some chocolate/caramel notes in both aroma and flavor. Little bit grainy. For style there is missing some body. It is too empty. Tastes too much like commercial lager. Spalt? Where are you?

Arve_Christian (3850) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2014
On bottle at kneipe in Wiesbaden. Brown color, good foam. Aromas of malt, light dried fruits; medium aroma intensity. Medium body & complexity. Some bitterness, smooth and balances very well. Enjoyable

29.07.2014, 0,33l bottle @ Artemis, Celle:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral, hay, minerals, caramel malts, grass, "knekk", hints of coffee. Taste is slightly dry mineraly, paper, hay, light malts, burnt caramel, minerals, cardboard. Medium bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel. Meh!

ectuohy27 (740) - ESTONIA - AUG 25, 2014
Nice move by LH to put the local stuff on tap at DUS--and it’s great. Smooth, velvety mouthfeel, layered palate (bit of smoke, bit of caramel, bit of hops), brooding appearance, rich head. Excellent intro to the style, for sure
