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.

This be good. A pale colour but a taste that is terrific... a bit of bitterness, clean and hoppy. My favourite german beer to date up there with the best Czechs.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2005 This is one sleeper pilsner. I Loooove pilsners and hadnít tried this one till now because A) It has an undeserved reputation as Euro-macro piddle water and B) I pick Czech Pilsners over German most of the time for my personal consumption. This beer is well put together and a good rendition of the traditional dry-tart pilsners from the CZ republic. Poured a very pale yellow...clear with some particulate in it...a white chunky cap reduces to a nice lace quickly as the effervescence dies down. The nose is very aromatic without being overpowering.....saaz hop tang with a more herbal bouquet and some nice biscuit malt notes. Starts very mellow then builds to a nice light silky body permeated with a good hop-malt presence in fair balance ...then the finish is the best part of this beer.....it goes into a lovely dry clean finish where the herbal tones are departed then a lingering metallic twang of saaz bittering parties on the tongue in the after taste. This is a very nice German Pilsner with a dry herbal tone to it I think youíll like if you are a fan of the Pilsner style.

It looks like a typical macrobrew. The taste was slightly wheaty. Not sure if I would recommend it to anyone.

Clear pale straw colow with white head. Floral hop aroma with some grainy malt. Some vegatable mixed in. Hop bitterness is a little sharper than the malt, but the sweetness still makes it way through.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 Bottle. Creamy barley malt and grass hops aroma. Golden yellow with a moderate head. Creamy malt flavor with a light grass hops finish. Probably the most reliable German pils that is available worldwide (along with Warsteiner).

Bottle at Decoy, Birmingham. Iíve had this plenty of times before, especially in Germnay, and itís one of the most reliable Lagers. Crisp, tasty hops and a light, fresh bitterness. A good flavour, very refreshing and maintains itís quality across the palate. Excellent.

Good solid performer. Bottled version wins no outstanding kudos, but preferred as a pils / lager over say Yuengling or Fosters. Nice almost deeper yellow coloring, expected hoppy nose decent+ body.
