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.

Color is a clear, light yellow, soory but it looks like pee. Poured with a favorable large head, white and foamy with some divets and was about three fingers high, lots of retention, and created patchy lace. Smells faintly of sweet malt and hops, very clean, but somewhat plastic-like with a thin earthy hint. Taste is evenly distributed between a slightly sweet malt and a dry hop. Feel is firm but light and watery, clean, and soft with a drying feel throughout the finish and slightly bitter sweet. Its quite drinkable, but left a little empty, easy drinkin' for sure.

Unlike most folks I'm pretty sure I prefer Urquell to this pils. Not bad, though. Mild hoppiness. Looks like pee. Reminds me too much of some of the weird cheap american brews my grandfather used to keep. I'm in the military have noticed that some of the folks woh've done tours in Germany will keep a 'bitte ein bit' sticker on their cars. What a bunch of dorks.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 One of the best mass market German beers around. Very pleasant with a wonderful pilsener character. Very light color and minimal fizz. Light and hoppy.

This is probably what American beers tasted like 50 years ago before they lost all character. Aroma is pleasently hoppy. Appearance doesn't get high marks due to yellow fizziness, however there is a decent fluffy white head that mostly dissipates and there is some light lacing. The strong suit of this beer is the flavor which exhibits nice hop bitterness. Pretty good.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2003
Large white foamy head, lasts relatively long and leaves fine lace. Light golden colour clear. Hoppy aroma. Silky, little watery, clean taste with a long bitter and dry finish. Nice pils.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 17, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Bitter aroma or sour malt and slight floral hops. Appearance was clear, even through the brown bottle. Looks very clean with a well trained head. Flavor was zesty malt, kind of like pilsner urquell if it wasn't so skunked from it's green bottle. It was dry, bitter, and refreshing on the palate. Overall it's a well done pilsener. This is what american macro's should strive for.

Had on draft out of a 2.0 liter glass boot at the Essen House in Madison, WI. Smells and tastes of your typical pils. Some bitter hops and subdued malts.

This draft brew from the GermanFest in Fort Wayne, IN poured a thin straw yellow carbonated body and a very small head (once again, it was served to us and may have bee poured off). It had a very mild malt aroma and hoppy flavor. It had an initially small hop bite to it that smoothed in its finish along with leaving an excellent lacing.

hotstuff (4096) - Indiana, USA - JUN 14, 2003
This Pilsener poured a small white head and there was some lacing on the sides of my glass. The body was pale yellow and there was carbonation observed. It had a hoppy aroma to it and it was very bitter tasting and had a lingering aftertaste to it as well.
