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.

Keg. Malty bready aromas with leafy hops. Some sweet malt and a moderately bitter finish. An enjoyable pilsener.

A very staightforward, yet solid, pilsner. Itís light yellow in colour, with a good amount of carbonation and a floral hops nose. The best thing about this beer is whatís missing... no skunk, no weird adjuncty flavors... just light malt, slightly bitter hops, and a clean finish.

No head. No smell. Quite BITter. Drinkable, but just a BIT too expensive and BITter.

Relatively dark golden color with a few bubbles and almost no head. Aroma is slightly skunky with some hoppiness (reminds me of Saku). Flavor is also pretty skunky, but with a fairly healthy dose of hops for a pilsener; earthy taste. Watery, as expected. Overall, itís drinkable but certainly not worth seeking out.

Pale golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma with a touch of skunkiness. Flavor is mostly malt with a bit of hops in the finish.

Golden color with a small white head. The taste is light malty with a earthy sort of grassy hoppy palate. Kind of watery and boring.

Aroma first out of the bottle was a little skunked. As it aired out, it became more pleasant. Had dirt and a little orange peel. The color is very light with an active head. The taste is light and thin with a metallic finish. There is nothing offensive here, but also very little character.

This be good. A pale colour but a taste that is terrific... a bit of bitterness, clean and hoppy. My favourite german beer to date up there with the best Czechs.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 This is one sleeper pilsner. I Loooove pilsners and hadnít tried this one till now because A) It has an undeserved reputation as Euro-macro piddle water and B) I pick Czech Pilsners over German most of the time for my personal consumption. This beer is well put together and a good rendition of the traditional dry-tart pilsners from the CZ republic. Poured a very pale yellow...clear with some particulate in it...a white chunky cap reduces to a nice lace quickly as the effervescence dies down. The nose is very aromatic without being overpowering.....saaz hop tang with a more herbal bouquet and some nice biscuit malt notes. Starts very mellow then builds to a nice light silky body permeated with a good hop-malt presence in fair balance ...then the finish is the best part of this beer.....it goes into a lovely dry clean finish where the herbal tones are departed then a lingering metallic twang of saaz bittering parties on the tongue in the after taste. This is a very nice German Pilsner with a dry herbal tone to it I think youíll like if you are a fan of the Pilsner style.

It looks like a typical macrobrew. The taste was slightly wheaty. Not sure if I would recommend it to anyone.
