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.

12oz bottle from 24 variety pack: fizzy, pale yellow in color, aroma of malts. Similar to the domestic fizzy yellow in apperance, aroma, taste. Dry dusty taste, bitter aftertaste.

Never have I ever poured a beer down the drain because it was so unbearable, but this beer made me do it. A Milwaukee "Beast" Best might deserve comments like "It takes 3 or 4 of these before it tastes good," but this was a whole new ball game. The worst beer I have ever consumed, no lie!

[Bottle 341 ml, served chilled, fresh, Blind tasting test with Mario D’Eer, dates are unknown] This was a Blind tasting test; I didn’t know what I was drinking.
This beer is sold in Quebec and i’ve had the chance to try it often. I tasted it as the SAQ Beer classes as well and my notes were exactly the same!

This is the best ’Classic German Pilsner’ I’ve had so far. Starts with malt, ends with hops. That’s it. True. This is a good beer to drink when you’re thirsty.
Of course, there is nothing special with that beer when you like strong ones. But you have to admit that compared to the style, this one is excellent.
Dispite all this, I cant rate it high since its boring overall compared to beers in general.

Probably the highest marks I would give this style. Very refreshing, and a great example of noble German hoppiness. I think I could beer bong this and enjoy it a lot more than coors light. Almost creamy as it warms. Lip-smackingly good.

Nice golden color. Aroma is metallic. Kind of like copper. Taste is also metallic but good. The finish is pretty bitter, just how I like it.

not bad. I had it in a bottle in a pub but not bad, better than what they had on tap, oh yes grolsch and carling, what wonderful beers they are, retch. Nice and cold its was a nice pilsner.

Smells kinda like meat sweat. And I should know! Boy howdy! Do I ever get the meat sweats! Shooeee! Looks like a nice tall glass of carbonated urine. Uneven head dissipates quickly. Lots of bubbles though. Really light body. A touch of hops at the end gives way to sour aftertaste. Tastes kind of like mineral water, but more expensive and alcoholic.

Not bad pils. Yellowish color, adequate head, more malty than hoppy, but not too generous in either.

500 ml can. Golden colour. Large white head that disminishes quickly, fair lacing. Better than average appearance. I liked the taste of this beer and would look for it again.
