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.

On tap at the Crescent Moon. This pilsener is light gold with little head. Not too carbonated. Very smooth drinking. Not as much hop content as, say, Urquell, and that makes it the kind of lager that the American Macros wish they could be.

Clear golden colour with a floral hoppy nose. Flavour slightly herbal, dry and a bit bitter

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2004
Not all that bad. Clear with no head at all. The nose is weak and that of a pilsner the taste is grassy and easily drinkable. My bottle was slightly skunked but not all that bad overall. Gets points for being very drinkable.

Eructoblaster (3288) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2004
Pale gold effervescent body with relatively dense head. Lignt malty nose. Refreshing hopsy/malty taste followed with a nice bittersweet final. Good average Pilsner.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 7, 2004
Tap. Clear golden yellow, little head. Mildly hoppy aroma. Flavor is decent, malty with hints of honey, slight hop bite. Crisp and clean, slightly sweet but dry finish. Decent pils, somewhat agreeable.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2004
Ultra clear pale yellow body and thin sudsy head. Light aroma of German hops, pale malt, and buttery diacetyl. Has some firm bitterness and lingering aftertaste. A fair pilsner that paired fairly well with my crabcake sandwich and onion rings.

PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2004
This beer had a terrible skunk taste. I assume this is due to it's very pale bottle that did not protect well the beer against the damages of light... Too bad as I was expecting a rather good one.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2004
Canned (premium beer). Pale straw color with a white head. Bready. A bit different, but interesting.

SpeedwayJohnny (18) - Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2004
One of the better pilsners, behind only Urquell and Konig on my list. Light, fresh, and "grassy". Quite pale and light, with a refreshing crispness. Always fresh (brown bottle)and consistent. A top-notch example of a German pils.

mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Not a good beer. Piss color, and little scent. It is a pretty bland and watery but has a bitter aftertaste that I don't like in my beers. Too hoppy if anything but still a step above macro U.S.
