COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Damn I love a good crisp BiTTer beer! This golden brew has little head and little lacing qualities but the flavor is crisp and delicous! The bitterness is just right for this pils! Bitte ein bit !

The original Bitburger, bottled or draft, that I drank in Bitburg, Germany was excellent. The bottled version that I had in America was average. Last night I found a blues bar in St. Louis that servers it on tap and it was better than the bottled version but not as good as when you’re sitting in Germany. It’s a typical German style pilsner, a bit dry with moderate carbonation.

imdownthepub (12915) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, 660ml. Pale gold beer with bubbly head. Highly carbonated beer making the search for flavour characteristics dfficult. Some peppery hop on the finish and a light malt body, but mostly pretty boring. I get a slight acidity, but I’m not sure if this is the CO2 talking. Never mind.

Pours golden and strawlike. Smallish white head. Nose is lightly herbal and grasslike. Palate is light to medium body with effervescent bubbliness. Very hard to find the maltyness or hops here.
