COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A genuine Bitburger - without any alcohol - but with the same drive as far as the taste is concerned, in bottles or as fresh draught beer from a keg!

DerWeg (1524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Fresh bottle, Germany, a half dozen times. Greeny hops aroma, worty malt in nose and in taste. Mild bitter hop aftertaste. Fairly decent German macro lager flavor with the requisite attenuation of the body caused by missing alcohol. "There’s a hole in my beer, Heidi!" A good effort by BB, but it’s always a compromise. My Onkel Klaus drinks this stuff now he’s old.

Not bad for a low alcohol beer. Yellow with a good head. Aroma of grass and straw. Medium body with a solid mouthfeel. Easy drinking...good.

Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2005
Taste like a beer, which is the objective of a low-alcohol. Unfortunately, like a macro lager. Still, it did the drink at the end of a warm long afternoon. Somewhat sweet and aggressive carbonation. Pale yellow, no head. Grassy, metallic. Thin mouthfeel.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2005
2004 bottle provided by and shared with clarkvv: Gold body with a medium white head. Excellent head retention. Aroma is apples, honey, corn, pilsner malt. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Flavor is slightly acidic with notes of cereal, sour yeast, cardboard. The finish of this beer is very clean and crisp with no bad flavors. This is the only beer I finished during our swill tasting.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2005
2004 bottle shared with bucknaked, 4/28/2005. Bright gold, moderate white head, well-retained. Aroma of pils malt. Flavor is shapr, acidic, cereal-like with plenty of cardboard. Sour yeast perhaps? Clean aftertaste, however, with no cereal grains. Moderate carbonation. Retronasal celery. Light body. A modest, though not impressive by any means, low alcohol.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 21, 2005
Pours a medium golden color. Malty, grainy aroma. Malty flavor. Weird aftertaste and finish. Not too good but better than alot of pale lagers out there.

Removing alcohol should not remove flavor. There is nothing about this beer that is noteworthy. Aroma, body, taste are all crap.
