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.

fluentsky (10) - Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2005
Difficult to get in Southwest US. Freshness a problem. Medium-light body, small head. Tart, hoppy topnote, varietal gracenotes. Bready, non-lingering finish. A good Pils.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
Bottle. Nice golden colour with an OK head. Malty and quite hoppy aroma and flavor. Malty palate that finishes off with a sharp dry bitter snap. A very good pilsner.

jeggersdvm (12) - Weilerbach, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2005
A decent pilsener if that is your thing. A little more hoppy than a typical pils and an overall good (but not great) beer for a hot day. ’Bitte ein Bit’

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2005
Pale color, nice aroma. It’s one of the best Pilseners that I tried while studying in Switzerland (even though I’m not a Pils fan)

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2005
Tap and Bottled. I tried it both ways, before rating it, and both my rating notes have "hints of vegetables in the aroma" on it. Other than that grassy and herbal. Taste is hoppy, grassy with some little maltiness and sweetness. It´s mediumbodied. Besides the aroma, a decent pilsner.

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - JUN 13, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2007 can, golden color. one of the better pilsners i’ve had, though i am not a big fan of this style.

weepingsuds (222) - Gaithersburg, Maryland, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Just a middle of the road pils. My friends Dad was a brewmaster at the brewery, but that still didn’t push the taste pass the okay mark. Enjoyable on a hot day, but not much depth in the bottle.

tomhenderson (166) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 5, 2005
12 oz bottle. Like so many other lagers, I found this to be boring and lacking substance. Even for a Pils, I was disappointed. Perhaps because mine had some age on it, I never found the "strong hop taste" that the commercial description mentions.

johndoughty (4982) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2005
Golden very pleasant appearance. Carbonisation was higher than most German pils making it quite fizzy.It left a dry aftertaste and overall was quite refreshing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very pale, lovely floral nose with a moderate bitter finish. One of Germany’s best known pilseners, and a nice one. 220499
