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.

330ml Flasche. Klar und bernsteinfarben mit minimaler Schaumkrone. Leichte Malznoten. Leichter Körper. Mild.

Vele malen gedronken; vooral langer geleden. Had lang een heel positief beeld in mijn gedachten, maar toen ik het een paar jaar geleden weer dronk viel het een beetje tegen; de waterig en te zoet. Toch nog steeds een van de lekkere Duitse altbieren. Mijn waardering is ook een beetje ingegeven door het verleden....

0,3l bottle. Nose: floral sweet caramel aroma, slight metallic notes. Taste: slight caramel, grassy bitter finish.

Moretum (166) - Vienna, AUSTRIA, AUSTRIA - MAY 24, 2017
Bräunlich rötliche Farbe mit kleiner, feinporiger Schaumkrone. Süßlicher, malziger Geruch mit Karamell und etwas Röstmalz. Geschmacklich zeigt sich ein ähnliches Bild: vordergründig Malz und Karamell mit etwas Röstmalz und einer leichten Hopfenbitterkeit. Sehr einfach strukturiert und leicht zu trinken, aber ich werde mit diesem Alt nicht warm.

Ladna bursztynowa barwa . Piana gesta wysoka. Aromat Aromat pszeniczny z gozdzikami w tle. W smaku wyrazna goryczka I troszke palony go slodu. Male nasycenie. Piwo wyrazne w smaku I tresciwe . Polecam.

Brown colored beer with a small white head, low carbonation. Tasty malt, caramel, sweet. Thin texture, easy to drink. Small bitterness in the finish.

thellgren (1061) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 16, 2017
0,33 l bottle @ Karstad Restaurant, Spandau. Appearance is clear brown and the head is quite big. Taste has dark malts in a big way - dark chocolate coming through. Ending is handled by bittering hops. Easy to drink. I’ve yet to compare this to other altbiers.

PietS (265) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2017
Nice, easy drinkable Altbier. Sweet, caramel, a bit roasted and pilsener bitterness. Good beer, but not very special.

jice (373) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 20, 2017
Toute première Alt, manque de référence. Mousse presque absente, notes de caramel, peu de relief au final.

Tried at Berliner Republik in Berlin. Smell of caramel, butter, bread and butter scotch. Similar taste. The butter is slight disturbing, but not too bad.
