UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 very light, very dry, smooth and grainy, with a tasty bitter herbal finish. definitely one of the better mainstream German pilses. rer8: very subtle, complex, spicy hop flavours make this a cut above most other German pilses. rer8 again: plenty of herbal, minty, aniseedy hop complexity. nice balance of bitterness and acidity in finish makes it very refreshing and crisp. dry and moreish. the malt is light but present - a nice hint of pencil shavings and just enough sweetness to balance.

I like it better than Warsteiner. I’ve only had it in bottles. The German Pilsener style isn’t as good as the boho, for me, but this will definitely do in a pinch.

Very smooth honey/buttery flavor. On tap this is a good beer. Out of the bottle this is just another skunked German pils. Typical golden color, typical white head. Nothing really makes this beer stand out.

Bitburger is a classic German Pilsener style lager. This is a bottom fermented Vollbier (full beer, or full-bodied beer with 11-14% original wort), having approximately 4.8% alcohol by volume. This is a finely crafted beer with a wonderful bitter Pils taste. This beer pours with a lively head and is very bubbly, having a high degree of carbonates that push a fragrant and flowery hops scent to the surface of your glass. The finish is a little yeasty and sweet. Serve this Pils at 7-9ºC (45ºF).

This is where it’s at right here. This is my favorite German brew. So smooth and a very pleasant aftertaste unlike other German brews.

A good beer, but nothing special. I am not much of a Pilsner fan, so it is hard for me to rate any beer of this style highly.

Pleasantly sharp hoppy aroma. Opens with a sharp hoppy bitterness, the middle is malty with some sweetishness. Finishes off very bitter. Not bad as German pilsensers go.
