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.

17Beer (198) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Mild alt aromas of bread and malt. Pours a red tinged deep brown. Clear with an off-white big head that fades slowly. Good lacing. Balanced sour malty tastes of leather with no sweet notes. Low carbonation and fresh mouthfeel. Drinkable.

nybol (1364) - DENMARK - APR 18, 2016
Typisk tysk øl. Den smager meget af korn som mange tyske gerne gør. Den er heldigvis ikke syrlig.

Kosmokrator (822) - ITALY - MAR 27, 2016
Alla spina. Ambrata, schiuma beige, naso debole. Al palato è un po’ acquosa, amarognola, maltata, debolmente luppolata e nocciolata; si avvertono un pizzico di caramello bruciacchiato sul finale e una parvenza "minerale". Dissetante ma... mah.

Oftmals getrunken - ein anständiges, überall zu bekommendes Alt mit kräftig, trockener Bitterkeit und rundem, malzigen Körper.
