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.

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.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a large frothy white head that diminishs slowly with fair lacing. Moderate hoppy and grassy aroma. Light to medium body. Moderate balanced bitter sweet flavor with a medium finish.

Better than I was expecting. The 660 ml bottle is bigger than I’d normally select for a weekday evening, but by the end I wouldn’t have refused another. The aroma was the most interesting feature: a sort of musty furniture polish smell that put me in mind of ancient university libraries and museums in English county towns.... The things beer does to your imagination!

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Poured a clear, bright, golden color with a tight 1/4 inch of head. The nose was of malt, herbal and grassy hops with a hint of honey. The taste started with decent malt backing, balanced by a subtle hop bite in the middle and at the finish. Drinkability was very high. The taste of this beer is nothing groundbreaking it’s simply a good, middle-of-the-road German beer.

So-so. Nothing to write home about. I guess the $8.99 price for a 12-pack says it all.

Golden with a fading white head and delicate carbonation. Herbal hop aroma with light grains. Flavor was balanced, ending with light bitters. Thin but crisp, light and refreshing. Cornfield and RAYBOY01 pressured me into having one of these, and I’m rather glad that they did.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2005
Botle: Crystal clear, very palr gold with a rocky, sudsy white head. Classic PL/Pils aroma - Spicy, herbal hops, buttery, corny malts and a bit of lemon. The flavour is likewise classic - foamy sweet malts and herbal spicy hops with some lingering white pepper tones. Quenching and nicely done, although the corn loses it a few points.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Golden yellow with diminishing head. Gorgeous fresh hop aroma, oily, herbal, grassy. Spritzy mouthfeel with bags of hop in the dry long finish. Great stuff.
