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.

Sweet aroma. Golden colour, big head. Nice bitterness. Grassy after taste. Fairly light beer. Average.

An aroma of hop and fresh bread. A nicely balanced bitter beer.

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2002
UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 Lemon-gold appearance with the expected corn/pilsner cloying sweetness in aroma and flavor. An off-balance, unenjoyable beer. Re-rate 4-27-06: Boring blonde color w. a small fluff top and artificial-looking carbonation. Aroma is clean w. a nice twinge of malt. Clean, but dull flavor. Actually an impressive import pils in terms of drinkability, but I am still not a fan of the style.

THE good-time student beer. I’ve always liked it and found nothing similar so far. Never too strong or too weak and I like it in the smaller handy bottles. I had this one even in Sydney.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2002
Grassy, sweet malty aroma. Neutral, sweetish taste, bit grassy. Slight bitter, soapy aftertaste. There are much better German pilseners around.

Good old pilsner. Nothing fancy or distinguishing.

A decent pils with balanced taste and suitable amount of bitterness.

Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 Nicely hopped, slightly sweet pilsener. Good hops aroma. Golden yellow clear with small white lacing. Med carb & body. Nice hops taste with light malts. Bitter finish & after.

Not bad, I guess this would be the German equivalent of asking for a Bud. The color and head are nice, though...clear, bright, shiny golden color and a huge foamy head. The taste is just as described in the ad: very bitter. It is sweet, quite hoppy, and finishes bitter. It isn’t bad, as I said, and I’m sure it’s pretty good for what it is. It just isn’t for me, though I would certainly take this over any typical American counterpart.

Way below average german pils.
