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.

Very clear yellow pour with hardly any head... there is a definite hop to it and a smooth floral palate. Is this a pilsner? It’s not very skunky -- smooth. It’s pretty decent.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Clear pale yellow color. Aroma of malts, sort of grainy. Light lemony flavor. Light hops in the crisp finish. Unremarkable.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 3, 2004
This is just a bland pilsener like so many others. Light yellow with a thin disappearing head. Aroma is weak with flowers and cheesy tones. Light flavor, grainy and slightly bitter hoppy. The average for this one on 3.02 is waay too much....!

bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is clear, pale yellow. The small white foam dissolves quickly into small, small traces of foam on the glass. The smell is fresh, sourish and quite plain. There are some notes of diacetyl. The carbon dioxide is medium strong with medium bubbles that vanishes away at once. The taste develops in a few steps: Firstly, there is a small rush of yeast and diacetyl. Then, a sweet body is replaced into a well-crafted, generous bitterness. Basically, this is a standard German pils with a little more diacetyl than expected. This special tone is dangerously close to a skunk beer, way beyond the best before date.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Yellow and fizzy...skunky aroma like grass...nothing to shocking here...tasted a little skunky and grassy...finish was much more bitter than normal for the style...like an Urquell, but without the maltiness...

Plastic bottle. Pilsner colored beer with ample but very fine bubbled carbonation. Has kind of a canned veggie aroma. Slightly sweet light flavored beer that finishes with a long, potent bitter dryness. Easy drinking, washed down my double cheeseburgers well, but not much to remember other than the finish. Oh well, back to work.

CAN: Light Gold Coloring. Small Skin of Head on Top. I’m Going to Have to Agree with Kujo9 on the Sulphury Yeast Comment.. Grainy. Lightly Bitter. Little Crisp, Dry. Not The Worst Pilsener I’ve Had...Although that Yeast Flavor is a Bit Funky..

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2004
Can: Clear golden body w/a lasting pure white head. Grainy malt aroma, light floral hop, & some sulfury yeast; clean otherwilse. Well balanced to just bitter, light yeasty flavor, hop flavor in the finish & aftertaste, overall clean as it should be. HIghly carbonated but smooth w/ a lightly dry m/f. Typical N. Germ. Pils. Very crisp & refreshing, but as also typical with Pils style, it lacks a lot of character & depth. Very good for what it’s worth.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2004
A good German Pils, very consistant, very thirst quenching, but not a classic. A nice pils. Ilike it when I’m in Germany, with food, but I don’t drink it in the states

TerryR (390) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2004
Very light golden color. White head disappears. Not much body. Some hops in the nose and a mildly bitter finish. Fairly light beer, but not bad on a warm summer evening.
