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.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2005 I like this one. A good, solid pilsner that’s easy to drink. A good choice.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Deep straw in color with a small white head. Mellow skunky hop aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a touch of earthy hops.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2004
Straw yellow with a nice creamy white head. Flowery hops and a decent mouthfeel. Ends bitter with a dry finish.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Clear pale straw colow with white head. Floral hop aroma with some grainy malt. Some vegatable mixed in. Hop bitterness is a little sharper than the malt, but the sweetness still makes it way through.

shrubber85 (8992) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 3, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Bottle. Creamy barley malt and grass hops aroma. Golden yellow with a moderate head. Creamy malt flavor with a light grass hops finish. Probably the most reliable German pils that is available worldwide (along with Warsteiner).

DanielBrown (4112) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2004
Bottle at Decoy, Birmingham. I’ve had this plenty of times before, especially in Germnay, and it’s one of the most reliable Lagers. Crisp, tasty hops and a light, fresh bitterness. A good flavour, very refreshing and maintains it’s quality across the palate. Excellent.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Good solid performer. Bottled version wins no outstanding kudos, but preferred as a pils / lager over say Yuengling or Fosters. Nice almost deeper yellow coloring, expected hoppy nose decent+ body.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2004
Strong, herbal hop nose. Clear golden coloured body with fine white head that recedes to cover. Crisp bitterness offsets sweet malt with some mild spicy hop flavours. Body is light but could use a bit higher carbonation to punch it up. Simple, straight-forward and well-made German Pils. Very drinkable. Bottle.

Choos (666) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2004
Bland lagery pils aroma that didn’t show any particular characteristics. Yellow gold with a small head. Some hoppy notes that weren’t 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 I’ve had in German bars - nothing wrong with it, but not the best either. Good taste and aroma but a little flat.
