Same problem here!
I am syncing with google calendar and turned off all default reminders at google->settings->reminders.
I also turned off all alerts in ical->settings->alerts
It seems as the default alarm is only occuring on all-day entries, as soon as I uncheck it, the default alarm is gone.
The reminder says "Standard (Am Tag davor um 09:00)" which is German for something like "Default (The day before at 09:00)".

Go to sysytem preferences -> Mail,Contacts and Calendars -> Your Acoount(iCloud,Gmail or whichever you synced with Calendars). Uncheck the box 'Calendars and Remainders'. Then you will be asked to delete the Calendars and remainders from your Mac. Click 'Delete from Mac'.This reomoves your alerts from Mac.

Thanks for reply.
That will effectively remove the calendar(s) all together won't it?
I and I assume the others above want the calendars and events, just not default reminders. It's the inability to remove the reminder that's the issue, not the calendar or event.
