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.

Sweet aroma that smells like grain. Grassy flavor. Hoppy finish. Not bad, but I’m not a fan of Pilseners.

Interesting european pilsener, with a surprisingly strong hop bite to it. Quite refreshing and would make a nice session beer.

MoritzF (9156) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2005
Clear golden colour with medium white head, quickly diminishing. Strawy and hoppy aroma. Soft sweet malty flavour with hoppy dry finish. A light decent Pisener type, quite popular in Germany and elsewhere.

Smells like can, pils, mellowness. Ginger, champagne (mouthfeel thus as well). Banana. Clean tasty warm-weather beer. Not hitting the spot tonight as it snows off and on, but I’m gearing up for summer.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Pours crystal clear and pale yellow with big white bubbly head dissipates right away though. Aroma is of straw and sweetness. Flavor is fairly mild, even for a pils. However one thing that did stand out was the body on this one. More body than most pils and quite smooth. A bit out of character but I enjoyed these qualities. Beer gets old and tired after just a few sips. Most pils I could drink several without losing enjoyablility. No thanks.

drpimento (2897) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Pours with a medium head that lasts a bit along with the lace. Nice beery, grainy, slightly malty and hoppy nose. Cheery light golden color. Thirst quenching with enough bitterness to make a great session beer. Had this one around for a while and it’s not suffered a BIT (sorry couldn’t resist)! Great beer, especially at a bar on sale for $1.75/can!! Got this one next door at Bodega.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2005
Pale golden with a thick rocky head. Aroma is a bit skunky, grainy malt. Flavour is a bit sweet, pale malt, light grassy hops and faint bitterness. Nothing special.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2005
Can - Watery, bland, overcarbonated and almost completely devoid of flavour. If it wasn’t from Germany, this could be confused for Blue or other North American swill.

mlathom (1) - USA - FEB 21, 2005 does not count
This is what a true, classic pilsner should taste like..Slightly bitter, clean, and refreshing. A wonderfully pale, flowery aroma. a clear, pale yet bright color. Flavor starts off strong yet not overpowering, finishes off cleanly.

hopdog (10913) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Ordered this one at dinner. Only beer that stood out against the list of macros and standard imports. Poured a medium golden color with an averaged sized white head. Aromas and tastes of sweet malts and some hops. Hops heavier in the tastes. Sweet. Not a bad beer considering the alternatives.
