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.

Very nice German Pilsener. Dry, hoppy, perfumy, pleasant. Nice rocky head. One of my staple beers.

Excellent hop character, very softly malted, stinging crisp close - a little watery, but still in style guidelines, I suppose. I love this aroma.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 A well made German style pilsner with emphasis on clean malt flavors and mild hops.

Color is a clear, light yellow, soory but it looks like pee. Poured with a favorable large head, white and foamy with some divets and was about three fingers high, lots of retention, and created patchy lace. Smells faintly of sweet malt and hops, very clean, but somewhat plastic-like with a thin earthy hint. Taste is evenly distributed between a slightly sweet malt and a dry hop. Feel is firm but light and watery, clean, and soft with a drying feel throughout the finish and slightly bitter sweet. Its quite drinkable, but left a little empty, easy drinkin' for sure.

Unlike most folks I'm pretty sure I prefer Urquell to this pils. Not bad, though. Mild hoppiness. Looks like pee. Reminds me too much of some of the weird cheap american brews my grandfather used to keep. I'm in the military have noticed that some of the folks woh've done tours in Germany will keep a 'bitte ein bit' sticker on their cars. What a bunch of dorks.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2005 One of the best mass market German beers around. Very pleasant with a wonderful pilsener character. Very light color and minimal fizz. Light and hoppy.

This is probably what American beers tasted like 50 years ago before they lost all character. Aroma is pleasently hoppy. Appearance doesn't get high marks due to yellow fizziness, however there is a decent fluffy white head that mostly dissipates and there is some light lacing. The strong suit of this beer is the flavor which exhibits nice hop bitterness. Pretty good.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2003
Large white foamy head, lasts relatively long and leaves fine lace. Light golden colour clear. Hoppy aroma. Silky, little watery, clean taste with a long bitter and dry finish. Nice pils.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2003 Bitter aroma or sour malt and slight floral hops. Appearance was clear, even through the brown bottle. Looks very clean with a well trained head. Flavor was zesty malt, kind of like pilsner urquell if it wasn't so skunked from it's green bottle. It was dry, bitter, and refreshing on the palate. Overall it's a well done pilsener. This is what american macro's should strive for.
