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.

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2003
Dry hop aroma, good colour but quickly diminishing head. Soft straw malt and not enough bitterness for my liking also a bit thin.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2003
Nice clear colour, not much head but good lacing. Not much by way of aroma. Flavour is very good - subtle malt, with good hop flavour and very late developing, drying bitterness. Solid beer, no faults, could be more interesting.

NectarFarm (128) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 14, 2003

happy4hops (376) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 14, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 Not bad(out of a pint can)Solid German pils not the best,not the worst.Better than a st. pauli.Typical light gold color.Small very quick head/good lace.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 8, 2003
Standard pils which is very thin and bland. The things are better with the aftertaste which is hoppy and very farmaceutic.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Golden color with a sharp, hoppy bite. Clean and straightforward brew that is a classic of the style.

grant60 (185) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2003
hoppy aroma, and a bit fruity. a bit malty with prominent hop taste, but not as much as urquell.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2003
Light yellow, clear colour. Little or no head in glass. Scent of bitter hops. Taste is slight sweet with hop / bitternes balance and finish. Typical pilsener.

Good taste...nice head to it...if you have the opportunity to try it, definetly go with the bottle...this one is not good on tap (unless I just had one out of an old keg)

Very nice German Pilsener. Dry, hoppy, perfumy, pleasant. Nice rocky head. One of my staple beers.
