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.

One of the better pilsners, behind only Urquell and Konig on my list. Light, fresh, and "grassy". Quite pale and light, with a refreshing crispness. Always fresh (brown bottle)and consistent. A top-notch example of a German pils.

Not a good beer. Piss color, and little scent. It is a pretty bland and watery but has a bitter aftertaste that I don't like in my beers. Too hoppy if anything but still a step above macro U.S.

Clear golden color with a quickly diminishing head. Strong aroma. Malty. Very drinkable. Some hops, and definitely malt. A nice beer to have when there's nothing new to try. Like TheBeerGod said, a good "anytime" beer.

Pours a translucent yellow gold. Tall foamy white head. Nose is bready and malty. Very light hint of grass. Very drinkable, if not entirely plain, beer. There's more malt, and some obvious hop character on the tongue. Smooth and refreshing, this is an "anytime" beer to me. It's just not complex, though.

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2004
My can said Premium Beer (not Pils). Pours gold with a tiny soapy white head. Nice beads. Mild hop/cereal aroma. Flavours are good but weak. Mostly mild bitter and balanced sweetness. It is pretty dull.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2004 Crystal clear, straw-colored lager with a large, fizzy, white head. Decent retention. Nice, crisp, malty aroma with a flavor to match. Some very light floral notes and notes of butterscotch. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Very short, nice, lightly sweet finish with just a small hint of corn.

A simple but rather enjoyable beer for me. Very easy to drink. Crisp, clean malt flavors with a low-moderate hoppiness. Not that exciting, but certainly gets the job done.

lightish colour, a little hoppy, quite nice and refreshing. sort of beer that would be great to enjoy with a good barbeque.

on tap germany: pale yellow gold with white foamy head. clean pale aromas with a following of crisp snappy light hop bittering. medium bodied palate. easy to drink. for something more exciting in this group drink a paulaner!

Presentation: 355mL brown bottle; freshness code that's undecypherable to me appears on back. Appearance: light golden, no head. Smell: a bit grassy, but smooth and appealing. Nice taste... Has a good bitter twang. A bit thin in the mouth, but really not bad. I think this would make a great session beer. I actually enjoy it more at room temperature.
