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.

Amber brown in color with a nice malty aroma and palate. Very unique taste profile with a bitterness enjoyed at the end and a dry finish.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2007 Bottled(330ml). -one of the best altbier beers 8/4/7/4/16
Bottled(500ml). -Nice amber coloured, medium sized white head. The aroma is very malty with slight hoppy, floral and caramel notes. Mild caramelish and bitter finish.

There is something that must be to style in an alt that just ever so slightly disagrees with my tastes. I basically enjoy this with an ever so slight taste that doesn’t do it for me.

Nice beer, just the right amount of everything. Only problem was a very strange aftertaste. Very odd, I couldn’t place it, I figure it must have been the hops. That was the only thing that ruined it for me.

Beautiful copper color and nice malty/hoppy aroma promise more than the flavor delivers. Muddled taste, though aftertaste is clean.

Diebels is a rich malt which shows it’s characteristics from Vienna malts. Excellent for quenching the thirst. ;)

Bronstein (175) - Göttingen, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2002
Malty and roasty alt style ale. Little freshness. Hardly drinkable for me.

BeyaMC (47) - Tirschenreuth, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2002
A typical industrial Alt. Drinkable but no character. Good for parties and to get sloshed, not more.

Dark red to brown, with a quickly diminishing white head. Somewhat Saazy nose gives way to rather bitter flavor, with some slightly sweet malt hints.
