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.

Lovely toffee flavor with burnt, smoky notes. In my opinion a very well made Altbier.

one of my favorite beers. just dark enough to be interesting, just light enough to be drinkable. a bit of a caramel taste to it. nice amber color. surprisingly not bitter at all.

This is my first alt, and if there are better ones out there, I want to try them all! At the end of the glass, I found myself wishing that the 1 pint, .9 oz. bottle had been one of those 22’s. Clear brown color like a Vienna amber, good and lasting head. Aroma is mostly malt, flavor is an excellent blend of malt and hops, finish has faint coffee notes that are happily not overdone. Just in case my description has left any doubt, I really like this beer!

Nice caramel flavor and aroma. Plenty fizzy with good head and retention. Bitterness detected, but not overpowering. Sweetness hinted and smooth finish. One of the best beers from Deutschland, and a pleasant change from the omnipresent pilseners. I had a friend bring this one back from Germany. One broke in his luggage, but still two survived.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 When it comes to altbiers, I prefer Widmer Winternacht, but this is a close second. Very malty and brewed in the old style of the Lower Rhine Valley. Light tasting, despite its dark color. Very tasty!

Draught (gravity) at the Diebels brauhaus, Dusseldorf. Delicious, sweet, yet light brew. This tastes lagery, but is softer and with many more subtle flavours. The aroma, is marshmallowy, with a big frothy white head, and a nice creamy mouthfeel. This was the best alt which I tried in Dusseldorf.

Mmm! Had this deliciousness at Einstein, chain of cafes in Berlin. Caramelly with floral aroma. Please, sell this in the States.
