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.

Voivod (304) - Como, - JUN 30, 2003
My first altbier. Amber colour, few head, soon disappearing. Caramel and hops in the aroma. The flavour is quite sweet (caramel and toffee) with some fruity notes (plums) and a good hoppy finish. It seems quite like an English beer with the typical German hoppy flavour. Strange, but i quite liked it.

thanatosti (1017) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2015
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Clear dark amber/light brown with an off-white head. Malty, very slightly smoked, aroma with some caramel. Taste is semi-bitter and the body is thin but fitting for the style.

rotaman14 (235) - Potsdam, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2014
Fruchtig malziges Aroma. Schmeckt würzig, geröstet. Ein... ungewöhnlicher Nachgeschmack von Zigarettenrauch macht sich bemerkbar. Hat ziemlich viel Kohlensäure und spürbare Rezenz. Gut.

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 (485) - 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.
