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.

Just a middle of the road pils. My friends Dad was a brewmaster at the brewery, but that still didn’t push the taste pass the okay mark. Enjoyable on a hot day, but not much depth in the bottle.

12 oz bottle. Like so many other lagers, I found this to be boring and lacking substance. Even for a Pils, I was disappointed. Perhaps because mine had some age on it, I never found the "strong hop taste" that the commercial description mentions.

Golden very pleasant appearance. Carbonisation was higher than most German pils making it quite fizzy.It left a dry aftertaste and overall was quite refreshing.

(Bottle 50 cl) Very pale, lovely floral nose with a moderate bitter finish. One of Germany’s best known pilseners, and a nice one. 220499

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2005 In Berlin, outdoor restaurant. Excellent solid round for dinner or rounds. Gets you going in a massive way. Update, from NJ: Excellent beer in cans in the States as well. "Bitte ein Bit" on the label. I get it! I get the advertising joke!

Pours with a storm of carbonation but without much head. Sharp hop and malt aroma. Moderate bitterness, moderate sweetness, moderate malt flavor, moderate body. Hey, its balanced.

(bottle) Pours yellow. Nice hops, slightly bitter finish. I imagine it would be much better fresh.

Not a bad beer overall. My good friend from Washington was stationed in Germany and recommended this beer to me. He said he always drank it at room temp...my American palate likes cold. A good beer that I will buy occasionally when I feel like spending and extra couple of bucks

pale yellow, nice head. the taste was a bit intantngible to me. not at all sweet, but not bitter, either. i suppose if i were to going to drink more than one beer, this would be a decent choice. it does have a nice bitter finish to it.
