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.

Had this beer on tap at a local German restaurant. Quite liked the malty flavor and very drinkable with heavier German food.

Thick short lived head and a nice cherry wood coloured beer.Not much of an aroma but i quite like the maltiness.

Padron4KM (809) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Pours a redish brown with a thick beige head. Thick clumpy lace. Some mustiness detected in the aroma, along with some bread. Thin, watery metalic quality to the flavor with some roastiness and burnt coffee. Bottle code was 5/04, so I might try to find a fresher bottle and try again.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2004
Pasturised bottle from Tesco, Loudwater, Bucks. Brown, patchy white head. Harsh in the mouth (overcarbonated), burnt sugar flavour, malty. Not a very good beer, and its amazing that this pasturised filth scores higher than some UK cask conditioned beers.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2004
Bottled. An aroma of brown bread and malt. The colour is mid brown. The taste is malty and fruity (dates/sultanas) and there is a real dark bread feel to it. Quite nicely drinkable.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2004
Bottle. Some malt aromas, caramel and fruit. Moderate bitterness. But on the whole lacklustre.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2004
Well, I picked up two bottles of this one. A pint and a 12 oz. The 12 oz stated Diebels Alt, and the pint said Diebels German Dark. Side by side time. Looked, smelled and tasted the same. Shrug. Oh well. Mahogany pour. Malt aromas of roasted malts and a slight coffee presence. Flavors come out similar. The roasted malts dominate the coffee flavors. Neither are overpowering. Smooth palate, malty finish.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Scotch malt hints in aroma(?), some nuttiness; crisp, tangy, malty flavor: typically German in taste; nice balance, sweet up front, finishes dry and short; somewhat thin body; I like

Reddish brown coloured. Malty aroma with notes of coffee. Malty flavour with notes of coffe and some bitterness in the finish.

TBone (17047) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 6, 2004
Bottled
Dark brown copper color. Creamy small white head. Quite mild hops and herbal aroma. Smooth malty mouthfeel: something like between a good dunkel and a good pilsener. Plain but very drinkable session beer.
