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

Diebels Premium Altbier was the first example of the style I ever tasted and I still have the impression it is the most ’commercial’ Altbier. Claims to have been perfected in the eighties by adding roasted malt and a second hop variety. Off-white head on a deep copper robe, caramelly taste with some smokiness and a leafy hop bitterness in the finish. I remember this was quite enjoyable, though I had better Alts since then.

sample in cologne, rich and nutty. Some maltyness and a crisp biscuitty hop finish, this one was charming.
