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.

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.

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

TBone (16449) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 6, 2004
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.

Ungstrup (35711) - 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.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Bronze color with a little fizzy head and lacing. The head remains for the whole glass. The aroma has a little caramel & malt with a light nose of floral hops. The flavor is mild (cough, session) with a good malty body. The finish is a little sharp but balanced. This is what the modern brown ale should taste like. Artisinal german brewing mixed with some historic techniques. Yeeha.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Bottle. Pours clear, brown with orange highlights and a large off-white head that stayed well. Aroma is rich and malty, with hints of brown sugar and fruit syrup. Flavor is smooth and sweet of dark roasted malts with a gradual emergence of the balancing hops leading to a dry, bitter finish. Medium body, mild carbonation and overall pleasant mouthfeel.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2004 Nice, dark brown-amber color, small head with some lace. Dry, mild and malty aroma with coffee. Very malty, slightly sweet and roasted flavor with well-balanced hoppiness. Long, bitter and dry finish. Medium-bodied, quite carbonated palate. Quite enjoyable, but mild brew.
