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.

Sweetness with some bittnerness. Had this right after a Warsteiner and they were somewhat similar. This one was sweeter, but the colors and aromas were indistinguishable.

A little better than most pilsners. Yellow, medium lating head. Not much aroma, flavor mild, perhaps grassy.

always did like this beer. Probably one of my first real german pils. Still holds memories of my first trip to the brickskeller. Now it also reminds me of Berlin.

Pours pale, with a big separated head. Aroma is a little bland, as is the flavor. Bubbly, although too bubbly maybe. Could be a little better.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 5, 2005
Pale golden colour with big white head. Aroma has some swetness along with the hoppy bitterness. Flavor is mostly hoppy and bitter with a dry finish.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Pours a clear gold with a thick, foamy white head. Nice lacing. Slightly sour faint malt aroma ... malty taste with more than its share of hops in the aftertaste, fading quickly. High carbonation. Decent, but nothing to write home about.

Pour is a bright clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is faint but i do get some malts. Flavor is malty and crisp. Not offensive or poor but it is weaker than most pils. Tries in every way to be pilsner urquili but it is a step below.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 29, 2005
This is a really good crisp, clean German pils. Yellow in color with solid carbonation, this smells mainly of a grainy maltiness. This maltiness is what’s first encountered when this soft brew enters the mouth, but it finishes with some good snappy hopping. Nice clean finish for this good example of a German-styled pilsener.

Very good german pils. Nothing special, just your good old average pils. I could drink these all night.

16.9 oz bottle - Whip-In Liquors, Austin, Tx. Pours a medium golden color with a thin, wispy white head and faint lacing. Aroma has some yeasty notes with a bit of doughy sweetness. Flavor has a bit of sweet biscuit-like breadiness to it with some trailing honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is not half bad, slightly sticky and thick. Much more body than your typical German lagers, slightly above par.
