The classic Bitburger - a mature and most agreeable beer - is brewed with the best of ingredients in the same traditional way it has been for many, many years. The result is delicately tart and pleasantly bitter - with a strong hop taste.

rayaron (457) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle 0.5l. Clear light yellow with medium white head. Very light sweetish aroma with notes of corn sugar and a bit floral. Sweetish flavor, some fruitiness and graininess, notes of corn sugar and herbs, light bitterness, semi-dry finish. Moderate carbonation, light-bodied.

Copenhagen 16/11 2014. 50 cl bottle from Netto. Pours clear pale yellow with white head. Fading quickly. Aroma is malty and a little grassy. Medium strong carbonation. Taste is a little sour, grainy and with a little bitterness. Dry finish. A bit boring. But ok to go with your lunch.

Haven’t had this one since the early 00’s when I used to buy it from Reigate’s Safeways. Aroma is bready grass and taste has not enough bitterness, but the maltyness is just enough. Solid I guess but bog standard.

Flanfl (140) - USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle. Clear yellow comour. Good size white head. Barely any hops in the nose. I expected much more but I realised too late that the bottle might be old. Anyway, I still smelt some spices, pils malt. More spices in the flavour but still quite weak. Yet well balanced with slight bitterness. Medium body and high carbo. Not convinced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. I think this one is underrated, maybe I just really enjoy hoppy pilseners. I was surprised at the hop flavor on this one. Very drinkable, dry, enjoyable. You can do a lot worse, that’s for sure.

Senka (800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle/tap. One of the most popular german lagers. Eurohops all the way. Fizzy, malty, refreshing and a good abv. Best on tap fresh. You can drink it all summer long. Does not get dull or tiring.

TychoJames (295) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Ljusgul klar kulör med vitt skum Doft av ljust bröd och gräs. Smaken är brödig med markerad beska. Ganska tunn men beskan gör ändå avtryck i munnen
