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.

Almost yellow in color but still golden enough, faint white head. I'm thinking these are Saaz or similar hops. Smooth in the middle with a dry hop finish.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Brown 0.5L plastic bottle. Clear pale golden color with a very small fast fading head. Slight grassy aroma. Flavor starts lightly sweet followed by a touch of hops and a light dry bitter finish. Crisp, clean and refreshing. A nice German pils.

Nuffield (3732) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Dry, plain pilsner. One of those beers for which the character limit can't come soon enough. But it was free at a holiday party I went to today so I was happy to drink a bottle.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Pours a pale gold with little head or lace. Sharp hop and malt aromas. It hits the tongue bitter, then malt rolls throughout the mouth and finishes with a malty bitterness. Fairly nice mouthfeel and palate for how light the body is. Good pils.

ClarkVV (3902) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 Bottle. Extremely clear. Some head, bubbly. Light yellow. Smells agreeable. Some grassiness, straw. Has a good solid hops flavor throughout much of the beer. Ends on a slight watery note with some wet mossy, barnyard flavors. Touch of malt sweetness. Medium light body. Well made, nothing terribly exciting. Carbonation is fairly large and peppery. Almost a hint of white grapes or something like that on the finish.

bb (7068) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 27, 2003
Bottle. Pale straw-colored beer with a big pure white head. The aroma is of floral hops with a slight spiciness. It's well balanced with a fruitiness and mild bitterness with a bit of an acidic bite. Has a sweet grassy aftertaste, but overall it's a nice lighter tasting beer that's easy to drink.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2004 Wheat-colour with little head, nice carbonation, very subtle bitterness. A nice, light tasting beer. (500ml can)

guzzler67 (1538) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Light straw color with a small head. Hint of lemon in the aroma. Medium-bodied mouthfeel with balanced carbonation. Fruity, sweet malt taste with a nice hop bite. Finish was crisp and dry.

Very flat pilsner with a plain non-descript aroma. The flavour is gently hopped with a sweetish finish. Overall very basic and pretty poor.
