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.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JAN 24, 2004
thin yellow color, bubbly, with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly yeasty, and . . . well that's about it. Flavor is bland, no real character. Palate is very thin. Blah.

Gmku (295) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2004
As commonplace as water in Germany, like Budweiser in the states. And I know many people really like this, but I don't find much to get excited aobut. It has a crisp taste and a clean maltiness behind the faintly spicy hops, but it's almost too mellow.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Pours a beautiful pale gold color which produces a thick white head in my fluted glass. The aroma is of grain and a faint hoppy spiciness. A mellow grain sweetness is in the taste as well as a sharp bitterness in the finish. It has a very light body, and is well carbonated. A very clean beer that is straight forward and to the point. Not a bad pils, perhaps missing that special something, but it is quite serviceable.

nickchalk (229) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2004
Very clear golden beer, tiny white head. Aroma is hoppy (hallertau or tettnang?), and flavour slightly bitter, dry, short finish. Rather thin bodied. Decent. Bottle.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2004
Pale yellow body with a weak white head. Aroma was, er, well, beer. That's all I can say bout it. The flavor? Again, beer. Seemed like just a generic beer. Refreshing, good with food, but nothing remarkable.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Almost yellow in color but still golden enough, faint white head. I'm thinking these are Saaz or similar hops. Smooth in the middle with a dry hop finish.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Brown 0.5L plastic bottle. Clear pale golden color with a very small fast fading head. Slight grassy aroma. Flavor starts lightly sweet followed by a touch of hops and a light dry bitter finish. Crisp, clean and refreshing. A nice German pils.

Nuffield (3771) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2003
Dry, plain pilsner. One of those beers for which the character limit can't come soon enough. But it was free at a holiday party I went to today so I was happy to drink a bottle.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Pours a pale gold with little head or lace. Sharp hop and malt aromas. It hits the tongue bitter, then malt rolls throughout the mouth and finishes with a malty bitterness. Fairly nice mouthfeel and palate for how light the body is. Good pils.

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2003
soapy aroma, pretzel/cardboard aroma, same flavor. Poured a pale yellow, much like Michelob Ultra. Taste was oddd.
