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.

It poored with high clarity and a light yellow color. I must have gotten a slightly skunky bottle because what started out as an aroma of hops quickly turned sour. Very little head, watery, and tasted like someone mixed in some coors light.

A nice summer beer. Canned in Canada, but likely purchased in Germany. A slight grassy aroma, bot otherwise not offensive. A crisp hoppy taste, which is a nice change from my favoured heavy malty ales. I actually liked it. Must be because it was canned = not as skunky.

This beer is one of the worst beer I have ever tasted. It was so bad that I couldn’t even finish it. It had a very strong bitterness to it.

Excellent German pilsener brew. I could drink this shit all day! But although I very much enjoyed this beer, my dumbass buddy drank his 6 too fast and vomited his Bitburger all over my carpet! Now he calls this beer "Bitchburger". Loser...

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2004
This poured an excellent head with good lacing for a German pils. A somewhat carbonated, easy-drinking brew with an oily palate near the end. Good bitterness quotient. I know this is "the pure shit" but along with the strong straw notes there was a definite plasticky aftertaste, I can’t place it. Good beer, not outstanding.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Pours a light yellow color. Small white head. Smells of sweet grain and not much else. Tastes a little sweet and kind of skunky as well. Tastes pretty average.

kathouse (1256) - Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Nice white foam from the tap. Clear, pale golden in color. Aroma of hops and light malt. Taste was very thin. Light mouthfeel, low carbonation, watery. Not something I would recommend.

Pale lager appearance, fair head. Standard German hops, very grassy, herbacious and metallic. Tinny grass hop bitterness, and a little grainy honeyish malt
