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.

A really classic German Pils, with a strong hoppy character and a dry finish.

Pours a lovely golden color with minimal head. Bitter and tart, with strong hoppy skunky taste to it. Not my cup of tea though.

Not as much skunk as some of the other German Pils macro's that we get here in the States. Nice color, not too sugary and real nice on a hot day.

Frank (2836) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 18, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 Pours a lovely perfect pilsner golden with a lovely pilsner head. Tiny but numerous bubbles of carbonation can be seen rising from the bottom of the glass. Nose of bread, freshly mowed hay, and hops with a mellow hint of sweetness. Pleasantly light mouthfeel with a creamy, finely carbonated edge. Flavor is slightly too light to get me going but tasty enough. Bready malts with a tinge of sweetness and some spicey, floral notes in the hops.

Great beer. Those little mini-kegs are sweet. Way better than other crappy german beers.

JK (4416) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2003 Bottle. Golden color with an airy head that leaves a lace on the glass. Not much carbonation. Scent of hops. Taste of bread and hops. Too bitter when cold, but mellows a little when allowed to warm slightly. A full bodied pilsner, friends were angry when I bought this and said I should have known with a name like Bitburger, it would be bitter.

grease (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 2, 2003
DMS oozes out of this beer in unexpected quantities (fresh bottle in USA). The near unidimensionality of the hops bitterness leaves the malt severly lagging. The sweet-vegetal character of the DMS is not at all welcome, even though it is not in huge quantities.
