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.

Bit underwhelming. Extremely easy drinker though and looks superb. Another to try in summer perhaps.

jann3 (326) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Dark reddish brown. Quickly diminishing head. Sweetish and malty aroma. Taste is malty with sweetish caramel and some grassy bitterness. Lively co2.

Derbeth (787) - Krakw, POLAND - SEP 22, 2016
Bottle. Dark copper colour, nice head that stays quite long. Aroma is rather empty, mostly coffee. Light bitterness. Medium body. A bit disappointing - I expected it to be richer in taste.

Grumpelmies (162) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2016
Chestnut brown. Good head. Smell: Malt and some German noble hops. Taste: Caramell, bread, hops, nuts. A faint sourness rears shortly its head. Very "sffig". Decent carbonation and nice mouthfeel. Good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Though I am fully aware that this is just an industrial beer I have to admit I quite like it. Draft is even better.

Mediocre beer. No flaws detected, but nothing interesting here. Really not worth buying again.
