Diebels Alt is a dark and delicious, flavourful beer. It is surprisingly light and drinkable. Not bitter and with no strong aftertaste.
Altbier is a German top-fermenting beer brewed in D√ºsseldorf and other parts of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The name Altbier, which means old beer, refers to the pre-lager brewing method of using a warm top-fermenting yeast. Over time the Alt yeast adjusted to lower temperatures, and the Alt brewers would store or lager the beer after fermentation, leading to a cleaner, crisper beer than is the norm for some other top-fermented beers such as British pale ale.
