2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
Pours a clean copper color with medium beige head. Aroma is malty with slightly roastiness and citrusy character, but quite weak. Taste follows the nose, sweet, citrusy, with caramel/toffee and a slightly roastiness. Bitter ending to it.

Sampled from 0.5 l bottle from local 'Netto', best before May 2018. Clear, dark brownish red with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, light beige head. Sweetish, slightly malty and a bit grassy-spicy aroma of caramel, nuts and some straw. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, a bit malty, slightly grassy-spicy and minimally roasty taste of caramel, nuts and straw, followed by a short, moderately bitter, quite dry, slightly grassy-spicy and moderately roasty finish with some metallic notes. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Not that great, pretty bland overall. MikeBeermaster (1171) - that shaggy maggot, POLAND - DEC 6, 2017
Faint aroma of sulfuric notes with a minimal cardboard and bready note. Deep copper in the glass with a minimal head. Taste is nutty with some bready notes, some caramel, bit harshy sulfur. Good. browarpapi (256) - WrocÅ‚aw, POLAND - SEP 21, 2017

I was brought up on Altbier and Diebels just does not match the brews from Düsseldorf. Please note: This is a highly subjective and disputable opinion. ;) victorsampson96 (170) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2017
This beer was hand-pulled from a wrought-iron water pump. Tradition or fad? You decide...
Pours a clear, amber-mahogany beer, with slow fine carbonation, and a creamy white head. A strong malty aroma, with notes of caramel, toffee, honey, roasted nuts, mellow pine, and a touch of iron. A smooth, medium mouthfeel.
Nicer than I though it would be, but slightly lacking in interest. Nonetheless, fairly pleasant, and easy drinking. janubio (976) - SPAIN - AUG 8, 2017
