Bottle. Light is the main word for this brew. Cold and refreshing with a very short finish. More character compared to other low alcohol light brews.

One of these ended up in a six pack of regular Bitburger I bought recently. Pours a light gold color I could definitely taste a hint of maltiness, but otherwise didnít think too much of this beer. If I want low ABV beer in the future, Iíll definitely stick to Berliner Kindle Weisse.

Grapevine Market - Austin, Tx - 12 oz bottle - Pours a pale straw color, with a thin snow white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma has some wort-like essence to it with a bit of Saaz hoppiness funk. Similar to some American low carb lagers, has a tonic water taste and feel to it very spritzy and not that refreshing in a beer. Detect a slight trace of malt and some peppery notes as well. Takes your breath away - in a bad way.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Vegue vegetable-like aroma. Vegetable-bitter flavor, not overwhelming in any way, but enough to be a bit annoying. Thin.

Not bad for a light beer. One of the better offerings within the style. I would definitely buy this one again.

This is a very good lager for a low calorie. Perfect for those looking for a full taste but less on the waist.

An obviously lighter version of Bitburger. All of the same characteristics, just less of it. Aroma is still dusty, but not as pronounced. One detractor is the thinner body and sharper carbonation. While they do tend to help emphasize the hop presence, they leave my tongue feeling empty. Not bad for a light beer. (Trader Joes - 7.99 a 12 pack!) Get some for the superbowl if your weight concious friends are coming over!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw color with a fluffy white head. Light malt and light sharp hops aroma. Somewhat fizzy in feel. Water, but alot of grainy malt. Floral hops flavor with a decent underlying bite. A decent pils, light or not. Losses a bit as it warm, but this was meant to be cold.

Yellow with a slight, whitish haze. Sudzy-white head is not thick, but lasted much longer than I expected. "Beery" aroma. Smooth, with a surprising amount of texture up front ... but then the carbonation becomes crisp and thins things out. Light and grainy malts. Hops were -- surprisingly -- somewhat aromatic (herbal and grassy) and a little bitter. Finished dry and bitter. One of the better "light" beers I've had.
