I had this beer with a German goulash in Dusseldorf on a business trip. It is a dark, reddish-bronze color with a huge white head....very stable. The taste aroma is malty and the taste follows suit. Clean, a little bready, and very with a clean, abrupt finish. Semi-Dry and approachable. Not bad for a mass-market German Alt.

Probably the best selling Altbier in Germany. It is also very typical of a style that I do not love because something in the malt mixture is off putting to me. In this one there is a slight coffee note that makes it more bareable for. There is even a clear nicely integrated hop presence in the aftertaste. Better than I thought.

Red brown color with a solid head. Decent aroma of malt, toffee and burned bread, with hints of funkiness. Fresh, malty beginning with lots of flavor, mostly malts, bread, hints of sugar, warming feeling on the palate, which vanishes way too soon. Nearly no aftertaste at all, only short bitterness in the end adding complexity to the malts. This is an easy to drink Alt, which may fit for warm summer days, but all in all it lacks complexity an has a too-light body for my taste. The malts are too sweet, therefore the beer lacks balance, which should be provided by the bitterness.

Bought this famous german Altbier in a 500 ml bottle. This beer is everywhere available where I live. I tried it once and I really didnt like it much. The look of the Altbier is dark amber with a good, beige head. When I opened the bottle an unpleasant odor of foul hops came to my nose...The first sip was also unpleasant. It had a very harsh aftertaste from the foul smellng hops to me. Not very drinkable. I wonder about the good ratings here, cause its way overrated in my eyes. This Altbier really didnt convince me at all.

A very nice colour: the label describes it as barn stone and i tend to agree. Nice stable layer of foam. Weak earthy and malty smell. Nice taste, though it's not easy to define it. Can caramel be bitter? Because that's what it tastes like: caramel bitterness. First time I tried an Altbier. If this beer is an adequate representation, I would gladly drink more beers in this style.

Fell for Alt years ago and love the chance too return to the offices in Gelsenkirchen just to drink it. Brady, hoppy, but still slightly sweat, very refreshing and very drinkable. Diebels is a good one!

Dark orange beer, very little head that vanishes completely after pouring. The aroma is faint with a vague presence of caramel but not much more. Taste is also pretty bland. The sweetness is balanced by some hoppy bitterness which makes the beer pretty dry in the aftertaste. Lightly bodied and very fizzy. I would say this is unremarkable although I remembered a much better product the first time I had it. Sad.
