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.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2004
The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, roasted bread, and a sharp flowerness. The color is a clear brown and it has a beutiful beige head. The flavor is very nice of roasted bread, slightly sweet with accents of caramel, and sharp herbs. It has a great bitter end from a combination of roasted malt and bitter hops. A very refreshing beer and nice beer.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Dark beer. Lacks the complexity of some of the other Alts but it’s easy drinking.
