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.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 7, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 Very pale yellow in color, extremely light. Aroma of corn. Watery with a pungent flavor of corn. Has a strong after taste. Honestly not much better than something from a MAJOR American brewery.

This is apparently the best selling draught pils in Germany, according to the label on my bottle...if my memory serves...this was tasted a wee while ago and my notes are a bit vague on that bit...any how....This is crap! Tasteless, thin and it has a weird chemical-like nose, very un-hop like!! Palate has a nasty grass- like flavour...I mean lawn grass! YUGH! A single bottle from VW Kelso, it is usually sold as a 6 pack, but due to a breakage this was available as a single...thank God I didn’t have to buy 6!

IrishBoy (4113) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 2, 2006
A clear gold beer with a medium off white head with a light body and mildly hoppy taste. It probably is just another labeling for Bitburger Premium ale. It came in a Costco Beers of the World pack.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Draft/Stubbie. Definitely has a strong aftertaste. It’s not my German beer of choice, but I usually will have a few when I’m out to dinner or at a fest somewhere.

jercraigs (9889) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2006
500 ml Can. Pale yellow body, moderate fluffy white head. Very grassy aroma, slight notes of flowers and honey. Sweet floral flavour with long lasting herbal finish that is not entirely pleasant. Average to light palate is appropriate.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2006
12oz bottle pours golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is mostly German saaz hops and some light biscuitty malt. Flavor is a nice blend of light malts and saaz haps with just a twist of lemon. Palate is crisp clean and pretty carbonated. Very drinkable and not bad for the style.

anders37 (23395) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2005
Pale yellow colour with white head. Malty aroma with hints of floral hops. Flavor is malty with a nice bitter mouthfeel. Has a dry finish. An okay pilsener.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2005
this beer kind of tastes like a greasy grilled cheese sandwich!!! weird. out of the bottle pours a highly carbonated clear hay-yellow with a barely-there fizzy white head that disippates quickly. fresh aroma - light hops. then tastes like the grilled cheese - prolly b/c its yeasty/doughy and then I’m not sure where the cheese comes from. finishes kind of fruity. like a small bite of apple. would be easy to have a few in a row. light and less filling than most. nothin’ special (except for the unusual taste part).

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2005
Flowery flavour with a good dose of what I think are Hallertau or some other german hops. Fluffy white head. Not just another dull pils.
