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.

(bottle) Pours yellow. Nice hops, slightly bitter finish. I imagine it would be much better fresh.

Not a bad beer overall. My good friend from Washington was stationed in Germany and recommended this beer to me. He said he always drank it at room temp...my American palate likes cold. A good beer that I will buy occasionally when I feel like spending and extra couple of bucks

pale yellow, nice head. the taste was a bit intantngible to me. not at all sweet, but not bitter, either. i suppose if i were to going to drink more than one beer, this would be a decent choice. it does have a nice bitter finish to it.

Pours yellow with small white head. Well balanced mal & hopps aroma, with a more hoppy flavor. Nice German Pils.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours a translucent gold with a nice white head....this is the exported version. I wish I had tasting notes from the non-ex version. I have fond memories of it. This one just isn’t crisp enough for me. It lacks the nice hop bite backing the firm malty, grassy taste of the non-export stuff. Finish is bitter and carbonation is light, but it just seems to lean to forward toward a sour maltiness. Typical of the Bit available on the US bases in Germany. The better Bit is to be had in the local pubs, on draught.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2005
Herbacious nose with some metal hints and sweet malt; well balanced; it has a nice smooth texture and body backing up some tangy bitterness, again metallic notes. Without the detracting ferrous hints I’m so sensitive to, this would be a very nice brew, otherwise it’s just good.

Dorqui (2174) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 24, 2005
Compact and adherent foam, discreet persistence. Limpid yellow color much and bubbly one. Good aspect. Mineral water and malt notes, light and watery scent. Fresh and prickly taste; much simple and without pretensions. Pungent and moderately bitter finish.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2005
Pours yellow with small white head. Good amount of both maltiness and hoppiness up front in the aroma. Grassy, hoppy flavor, and as others mentioned quite hoppy for a German Pilsener.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2005
Bottle poured dark yellow with a small fizzy head. Aroma of light malt and wet dishrag. Flavor is crisp, grassy with a light hops finish. Not bad at all.
