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.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 Bottle. Extremely clear. Some head, bubbly. Light yellow. Smells agreeable. Some grassiness, straw. Has a good solid hops flavor throughout much of the beer. Ends on a slight watery note with some wet mossy, barnyard flavors. Touch of malt sweetness. Medium light body. Well made, nothing terribly exciting. Carbonation is fairly large and peppery. Almost a hint of white grapes or something like that on the finish.

Bottle. Pale straw-colored beer with a big pure white head. The aroma is of floral hops with a slight spiciness. It's well balanced with a fruitiness and mild bitterness with a bit of an acidic bite. Has a sweet grassy aftertaste, but overall it's a nice lighter tasting beer that's easy to drink.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Wheat-colour with little head, nice carbonation, very subtle bitterness. A nice, light tasting beer. (500ml can)

guzzler67 (1502) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Light straw color with a small head. Hint of lemon in the aroma. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with balanced carbonation. Fruity, sweet malt taste with a nice hop bite. Finish was crisp and dry.

RichardGretton (4247) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2003
Very flat pilsner with a plain non-descript aroma. The flavour is gently hopped with a sweetish finish. Overall very basic and pretty poor.

Pale straw colour. Firm foamy head. A bit thin in taste, pleasantly bitter taste but nothing special.

Yellow, and not much head. Aroma is hoppy, and alittle metallic. Has a sour and bitter flavor, not that good...

Mild skunk sent pouring golden clear with good carbonation and a decent head. Clean crisp taste, very refreshing.

Herbal/hop aroma. Clear golden color. A bit of malt in the flavor with a dry and bitter finish. Pretty average.
