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.

Solid German pilsener. Some hops,better than average beer for the style.

One of my best friends spent a year of high school in Germany, and drank this stuff everyday. I fail to share his enthusiasm for the beer.

First things, first. I am not a fan of german beer, I tend to stick, and enjoy the American Standards. But this beer caught my eye because it was in a Gallon Keg with a tap built right in. The keg looked cool, but I didn’t enjoy the beer, just wasn’t for me.

Boring average german pils. Light dryness from the bittering hops.

For the first taste I thought, ’wow, this is pretty good!’, but then I have to admit that the more I drank the more average tasting it became. Definitely good for a pilsener - which I normally don’t like at all.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2002
This was a decent German beer. Lightly hopped aroma. Golden color with a medium thick, lively head. Light, almost wheaty flavor made this a nice summer beer but it wouldn’t really float my boat as a beer to keep stocked in the fridge. Good introduction to import beers.

I assume this is the same as Bitburger Premium Beer? If you can get around the smell, it’s really not too bad for a pils. Normally I don’t like anything that’s the color of the piss of a dehydration victim, but the nice head saves the appearance. The flavor is clean and smooth, a bit bitter.

Clearly, a shining example of the brewers heratage Germany proudly maintains. I am clearly impressed with this item and has become a standard within my home.

Had this at a German restraunt. Not a bad Pils. Finishes dry and somewhat bitter. Quaffable.
