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.

This is a fine Pilsner with a similarity to Pilsner Urquell and Warsteiner. The taste is bitter but I like it. It goes down very easily and the aftertaste is pleasant. If this were to be served at a party I would be happu.

Tasty, unoffensive German Pils. A little chalky. Thank God for No Skunkiness. Quenching to the palate. Fairly light.

This was my brotherís favorite beer when he was stationed in Germany, so when I saw it here on tap, I had to try it. What was he thinking? Totally bland, and slightly skunky average beer. Tasted like a macro.

ALLOVATE (2687) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2005 Tasted from the 345mL glass & 500mL plastic bottles. Poured into a pilsner glass, pale straw-gold, clear, with a little fluffy white head that lasted the distance. Aroma of grains and biting, spicy hops. Refreshing and balanced in the mouth, light bodied and spritzy in carbonation, with spicy noble hops, grainy malt, sour lemon notes and a bitter grassy swallow. Perfect Lager for Australian Summers.

500 ml can. Clear, pale golden color, medium white head. Balanced aroma of hops and malt. Again blance is found in the flavor between crisp malt and hops, bitter finish. Medium body, slightly creamy texture, medium carbonation. Well, Iím kind of surprised by this beer, itís a relatively clean, crisp and decent pilsner.

Bottled: Light yellow. Clear. Fluffy white head. Aroma is floral and hoppy. Flavour is hoppy with some fruity notes. Quite thin bodied. Is light bitter in the end. A pretty average beer.

IHCNavistar (93) - Orinda, California, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Bottle. Moderatly hoppy aroma. Light gold color, like apple cider. Flavor is slightly watery at the onset, but leaves a strong finish after it goes down. Carbonation is weak though, not enought to last the whole bottle.

JWF (4) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 21, 2004 does not count
Very pale in color with little head. Aroma is slight and sweet. Thin body, some hop bitterness. Clean, with an interesting sweet-grainy flavor in the background. Not a standout, but respectable effort and very easy to drink.
