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.

16.9 oz bottle - Whip-In Liquors, Austin, Tx. Pours a medium golden color with a thin, wispy white head and faint lacing. Aroma has some yeasty notes with a bit of doughy sweetness. Flavor has a bit of sweet biscuit-like breadiness to it with some trailing honey sweetness. Mouthfeel is not half bad, slightly sticky and thick. Much more body than your typical German lagers, slightly above par.

I drink this on my holiday to the Moesel-region. It was the only pils available. Descent pils beer, probably one of the better German beers available.

highlandlad (1463) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2005
A clean-tasting, unremarkable pilsener. The hoppy nose is so subtle it’s barely there. Sweetish and quenching. Would like to try the draught someday as its reputation created higher expectations. (Bottle)

Lubiere (12371) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2005
Golden pils with a fresh cereal aroma. Crisp dry beer, with sharp malts, clean taste, lightly chalky notes, and full of cereals in mouth. Very good pils!

[on tap at Ouzeri] Bright dark yellow that keeps a thin head that leaves lace on the glass sides. Clean aroma of noble hops and sweet maltiness. Grain and noble hops flavour up front and then sweet malt. Light to medium body with perfect CO2 levels, but unfortunately a little metallic and some astringency that comes in very late.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2012 Tap At The Old Cannon.Pale straw in colour,lot’s of floral hints,so much better than the bottle,served in the right glass and the temperature of a winter walk in the snow.I felt like John Mills at the end of Ice Cold In Alex when I had this,great stuff,great session.

500ml can. Pale gold with a creamy white head. Malt nose with floral hop accents. Firm maltiness, noticable and pleasing hop bitterness.

Foxbush (1711) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 This is version that is imported in the USA by Bitburger Import Co of Venice, Florida. Decent head that didn’t last to the end. Flavor was of hops with hints of bitterness. It was just an average drink. Not a special; beer. Received another bottle for Christmas 2009. The beer has more flavor of bitter hops tham most pils. I upgraded my opriginal score.

I have drank several cases of this stuff. Its light on the hops flavor but heavy on the bitter side. I like bitter so this is a favorite.

Poured yellow with white fluffy head. Aroma was mostly yeast. The head left good lacing, and it was refreshing, if a little skunky? Not bad , but I am not a huge pils fan. And where is the STRONG HOP TASTE?
