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.

Choos (660) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2004
Bland lagery pils aroma that didnít show any particular characteristics. Yellow gold with a small head. Some hoppy notes that werenít Saaz spicey that I would have expected from A Classic German Pilsener.

macsporran (1) - Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2004 does not count
Drinking it here in the US it reminds me, not surprisingly, of cheap draught pils Iíve had in German bars - nothing wrong with it, but not the best either. Good taste and aroma but a little flat.

This is a classic German Pilsner, just easy drinking and enjoyable, with decent flavor. Great for barbecues.

GregClow (2951) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
Clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Mild herbal aroma. Thin, watery body. Mild flavour with a faint hint of malt and a very dry finish. Refreshing, but rather lifeless.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - MAY 6, 2004
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.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2004 Brown Bottle (Plastic). Distinctive honey aroma. Honey carries in to the flavour with a big bitterness. Decent pils.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Pours light yellow with a foamy white head. Comes in a nice brown bottle so thereís 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.

Sammy (9280) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
nice appearance with lasting creme. Ok smell. But thatís 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!
