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.

You’d think some medicinal herbs were added to this one cuz they’re very noticeable along with the very dry/very bitter finish. Not a bad beer, though I don’t care for the style too much.

Dry finish, seemed very mainstream to me. Certainly drinkable but unremarkable

Yes it’s German. Resin. resin, resin. Fairly clean. Bit of cardboard in there. Not particularly bitter. That’s why it’s a pilsner and not a Bitter. Odd that. Raises your taste buds and then won’t let them go (which is not so good if you want to go onto a different beer).

Pretty good. Lots of flavor, very sharp and crisp, with enough malt to achieve balance. A good pilsener.

ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - OCT 9, 2002
Had a few bottles of this after work. Mild resinous nose. Pours a clear light straw. The large fluffy white head is mostly diminishing and has fair lacing. Balanced flavor with low acidity. Long nutty sweet finish. Light watery palate with a healthy dose of fizz. Feels metallic at the finish. Perfect summer offering.

Surprisingly hoppy for a german pilsner. Not as hoppy as Victory’s however. Poured well with a transparent golden hue and foamy white head. Bitter at first but mellows as you swallow. Pretty easy drinking but could be a little smoother at first, finishes strong. Good beer.

A very hoppy and quite bitter German pilsener. Very classic and refreshing.

Not bad. Wouldn’t go out of my way for it. Slightly dry but fairly tasty.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Pale color and thin head normally associated with macro brewerys. Smooth, hoppy, slightly off taste. I wouldn’t turn one down, but there are others I’d prefer.
