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.

Light golden color with a tall white 7 minute head. Noble hops nose. Sharp bitterness. Quite clean. Decent dry hoppy finish. One of the better ggerman pils available in the states.

Re-rate: the first time i drank this out of a can and it was disgusting. However, when avoiding the can-versions this is ok (for a pilsener).

Clear gold in color, the head is frothy white, the lace is adequate. Nose is malt, clean and crisp. Front is malt, the top light, the finish is lightly acidic, dry and a nice touch of hops, a decent drinking beer. Ranks #841 on my master list.

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 (7575) - 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.
