COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 good lightly flavoured alt. Complex considering its delicate coffee and caramel flavours. Very drinkable.

Nuffield (3717) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 15, 2002
Not a lot of flavor complexity up front, but a more complex finish. Hints of coffee bean, candy, but dry. Attractive color. (on tap, Flying Saucer, Addison, TX) Thanks foduck!

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2002
A little malty, and some of the alt flavors from the yeast strain. Not much more going on than that. Simple but pleasant. I don’t think I would buy it again though.

Nice caramel flavor and aroma. Plenty fizzy with good head and retention. Bitterness detected, but not overpowering. Sweetness hinted and smooth finish. One of the best beers from Deutschland, and a pleasant change from the omnipresent pilseners. I had a friend bring this one back from Germany. One broke in his luggage, but still two survived.

YogiBeera (2493) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2002
Malty but also skunky nose included in this wonderful amber bodied beer with the big frothy head. Very malty with a long lasting kind of sweet finish. It is good but in comparision to other beers of this style it is only average.
