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.

As the description says, there is a good tart, hop bitterness in the first sip, but the finish was lacking. Ended up dry and watery with no flavor. Not bad overall, but not great.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Brown Bottle (Plastic). Distinctive honey aroma. Honey carries in to the flavour with a big bitterness. Decent pils.

Pours light yellow with a foamy white head. Comes in a nice brown bottle so there’s not a trace of skunk in the aroma. Aroma is mostly malt with some hops. Smells very clean and crisp. Flavor is malty, creamy, with some nice hop notes in the finish. Overall, I find this beer very agreeable, possibly my favorite of this style.

nice appearance with lasting creme. Ok smell. But that’s the end of this. Metalic in can taste. Strong carbonation and water. The type of beer you expect in the summer at a soccer game.

My sample said "Premium Beer", not Premium Pils. I'm not sure if they're the same. I paid $2.88 for a 4 pack of 16 ounce cans at Discount Liquors in Milwaukee, WI. 04/25/04. Hearty aroma. Medium yellow color. Average head. EXCELLENT, SIMPLY EXCELLENT bitter flavor and after-taste. It's not TOO bitter, mind you. But it's also not wimpy and light like most American brews. Very good character. I really, really like this beer. You can chug it. You can sip it. It goes well with food. An all around great beer. Strong presences of hops. This is my current favorite, and may end up my favorite of all time!

Label is different says Premium Beer. Instead of logo to left saying premium pils. Not bad. Drinkable smooth. Not a bad beer. Confusion over labeling is something they might consider in the future. Premium beer can be anything.

I like the way the germans put this in a mini keg. Since the people who run this site do not like what i did the keg. All i will say is that this is a good beer and my girl does not open her mouth anymore

ghawener (1491) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - APR 25, 2004
Bottle: Pale yellow with medium head. Smells of hops come strongly out. Sweet and herbal and slightly bitter. Not a bad one at all.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2004
Canned- Aroma is hoppy, but only by a little bit. Taste is also hops, watery, and some can with a little bit of bitterness for fun. Body is a darker gold colour with a thin white head making an appearance. Not sure I will get this again.

On tap at the Crescent Moon. This pilsener is light gold with little head. Not too carbonated. Very smooth drinking. Not as much hop content as, say, Urquell, and that makes it the kind of lager that the American Macros wish they could be.
