1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I think the words "ewww" and "blegh" best described this drinking experience. It pours a very very light yellow with very active carbonation and an almost green hue to it...which scared me to say the least. The aroma was interesting in that i have described beers as smelling like ass before, but this is the first time i have ever meant it..my first whiff of this one reminded me of sitting on the john taking a dump!!! Luckily it got a tiny bit better as the corny sweetness took over. The flavor is horribly corny and a tad glassy/metallic. It also has hints of cigarettes, cardboard, stale hops, and a few fresher hops, and a corny artificial sweetness, that could be a potential for malt in this beer. Overall a fairly dry, corny sweet finish...over carbonated...and not balanced in any respect. Nor is it very appealing...

Light yellow, small head and lace. Subdued german malts, cereal, saaz in the nose. Light to medium bodied, soft, nice bitterness with some grassy dryness. Decent pils.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. Wenlock Arms. Pale gold, light white fluffy head. Farely one dimensional flavour. Didn't live up to its expectations at all.

Every sip of this beer was like a train wreck in my mouth. It's almost like there are two distinct flavors that tried to get together and consummate their love, but both left angry and unfulfilled; much like I did after this beer.

Pale/Gold in colour. Very refreshing. Has a fairly bitter finish, I enjoyed that aspect of it.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 April, 2003 Bottle The Bitburger brewery has been going since 1817, but it was in 1883 that they brewed their first Pilsener, claiming to be among the first in Germany to do so - and winning a court battle in 1913 to use the term Pilsener. In a country which prides itself on its distinctive regional breweries Bitburger achieved distinction by making a universal lager and selling it all over the place! There is some light sweetness and a pinch of salt. But a long developing hop finish is the key thing to this lager. Everything is quite soft and laid back, then the hops slowly assert themselves finishing with a long dry bitterness. Decent, and decent quality, but for this non-lager lout it remains simply a lager. [2.0]

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fine looking pils. Aroma of malt and lemongrass. The taste is very balanced with sweetness and bitterness from the hops. Fine after bitternes witch makes you want more.

This is a great Pilsner. Very crisp and refreshing. Has a combination of bitter and sweet flavors. Good hop flavoring. The draft I had was very fresh and very good.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2003 This is a very nice Pilsener, it is well balanced and has a little hoppy aftertaste wich comes when you are half way down the glass.
Like many German Pils this one is rich in taste but has low bitterness over the palate. I like this beer.

I didn't find this beer too interesting. it is a decent bitter, but I couldn't find anything special in the aroma or the flavor. It is a fairly enjoyable drink, but it doesn't have a lot of character.
