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.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2002
Very light straw-colored, with a thick head, and ample carbonation. One of the cleaner smelling pilseners I’ve encountered, with a bit of a sour flair. Yes! this beer has a nice snap to it, with its distinctive hoppiness, lively texture, and high drinkability. Great lingering hop bitterness. I like it. My kind of pils.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 Crisp pils with a little bitter finish. Not bad. A bit light tasting, really.

Panzuriel (1312) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2002
Very nice crisp and almost acrid aroma. Good color, nice bubbles. Great pilsener flavor. clean to the last drop. A bit on the thin side, but not too bad. A very nice pilsner.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 20, 2002
Rerate Still a pale yellow ’healthy urine’ coloured beer but with a large cream coloured short lasting head. Hops and a faint, yeasty, plasticky, plasticene, whiff in the aroma. Medium to soft palate with faint sweet malty wheat, and slightly stronger bitter flavours in the middle and finish. These types of German pils are way too light and bland for my taste.
First rated 12/5/02: Mainz, Germany: 2.4

Quite bitter flavor. Light body. Not much aroma. Not a bad pils.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2002
On draft at a wedding. Did not like it at all. Overwhelming bite on the nose and the taste made me run for the Budweiser. RERATE - I had to lower my rating as I recall how much I REALLY HATED this stuff.

kumite56 (471) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2002
Not a bad example of a pilsner. I was left short however as it was much lighter than I anticipated. Large white rapidly diminishing head. Slightly hoppy nose and dry. Suggest you save this one for a hot day after mowing the lawn.
