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.

BillKismet (3360) - 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. Iíve 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.

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.

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 isnít bad, as I said, and Iím sure itís pretty good for what it is. It just isnít for me, though I would certainly take this over any typical American counterpart.

Way below average german pils.

eczematic (1320) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2006 very light, very dry, smooth and grainy, with a tasty bitter herbal finish. definitely one of the better mainstream German pilses. rer8: very subtle, complex, spicy hop flavours make this a cut above most other German pilses. rer8 again: plenty of herbal, minty, aniseedy hop complexity. nice balance of bitterness and acidity in finish makes it very refreshing and crisp. dry and moreish. the malt is light but present - a nice hint of pencil shavings and just enough sweetness to balance.

I like it better than Warsteiner. Iíve only had it in bottles. The German Pilsener style isnít as good as the boho, for me, but this will definitely do in a pinch.
