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.

Grumbo (1365) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn and shared at the 3rd Ipswich bottle share. Pours a clear maroon brown colour with an small off-white head. Aroma is very malty, with light fruit. Average sweetness and bitterness, with a light sour sharpness. Medium body and texture is sticky. Average carbonation.

Bottle. Dark copper colour, nice head that stays quite long. Aroma is rather empty, mostly coffee. Light bitterness. Medium body. A bit disappointing - I expected it to be richer in taste.

Maracuja05 (565) - Mainz, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2016
[backlog] 08-05-16 / bottle. Not a good Alt. Some old caramel notes. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.5/5
