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.

Pours yellow with small white head. Good amount of both maltiness and hoppiness up front in the aroma. Grassy, hoppy flavor, and as others mentioned quite hoppy for a German Pilsener.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2005
Bottle poured dark yellow with a small fizzy head. Aroma of light malt and wet dishrag. Flavor is crisp, grassy with a light hops finish. Not bad at all.

Fiend (104) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2005
A pungent aroma fills your nose as the thin head fizzles away. This beer has a crisp, strong flavor that tricked me into thinking this beer was a higher alcohol content than the 4.8%. For a Pilsner I was surprised at the strong hop presence. Pretty good German beer!

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Pours clean gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly leavinf a faint rim around the glass. Sour malt aroma with a hoppy nose and notes of yeast. Hoppy and sour malt flavor with faint olive notes. Fizzy and light palate that feels silky near the end.

Honey aroma (smells like a weak version of Honey Robitussin Cough Syrup). Yellow bodied. Light honey-lemon flavor. Better than a typical Pils.

Sweet aroma that smells like grain. Grassy flavor. Hoppy finish. Not bad, but I’m not a fan of Pilseners.

Interesting european pilsener, with a surprisingly strong hop bite to it. Quite refreshing and would make a nice session beer.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2005
Clear golden colour with medium white head, quickly diminishing. Strawy and hoppy aroma. Soft sweet malty flavour with hoppy dry finish. A light decent Pisener type, quite popular in Germany and elsewhere.

ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Smells like can, pils, mellowness. Ginger, champagne (mouthfeel thus as well). Banana. Clean tasty warm-weather beer. Not hitting the spot tonight as it snows off and on, but I’m gearing up for summer.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Pours crystal clear and pale yellow with big white bubbly head dissipates right away though. Aroma is of straw and sweetness. Flavor is fairly mild, even for a pils. However one thing that did stand out was the body on this one. More body than most pils and quite smooth. A bit out of character but I enjoyed these qualities. Beer gets old and tired after just a few sips. Most pils I could drink several without losing enjoyablility. No thanks.
