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.

Pours a light yellow color. Small white head. Smells of sweet grain and not much else. Tastes a little sweet and kind of skunky as well. Tastes pretty average.

kathouse (1544) - Nevada, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Nice white foam from the tap. Clear, pale golden in color. Aroma of hops and light malt. Taste was very thin. Light mouthfeel, low carbonation, watery. Not something I would recommend.

Pale lager appearance, fair head. Standard German hops, very grassy, herbacious and metallic. Tinny grass hop bitterness, and a little grainy honeyish malt

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2004
Keg. Malty bready aromas with leafy hops. Some sweet malt and a moderately bitter finish. An enjoyable pilsener.

piscator34 (2298) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 25, 2004
A very staightforward, yet solid, pilsner. It’s light yellow in colour, with a good amount of carbonation and a floral hops nose. The best thing about this beer is what’s missing... no skunk, no weird adjuncty flavors... just light malt, slightly bitter hops, and a clean finish.

WYSIWYG (20) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 24, 2004
No head. No smell. Quite BITter. Drinkable, but just a BIT too expensive and BITter.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Relatively dark golden color with a few bubbles and almost no head. Aroma is slightly skunky with some hoppiness (reminds me of Saku). Flavor is also pretty skunky, but with a fairly healthy dose of hops for a pilsener; earthy taste. Watery, as expected. Overall, it’s drinkable but certainly not worth seeking out.

Pale golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma with a touch of skunkiness. Flavor is mostly malt with a bit of hops in the finish.
