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.

This is where it’s at right here. This is my favorite German brew. So smooth and a very pleasant aftertaste unlike other German brews.

A good beer, but nothing special. I am not much of a Pilsner fan, so it is hard for me to rate any beer of this style highly.

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2002
Pleasantly sharp hoppy aroma. Opens with a sharp hoppy bitterness, the middle is malty with some sweetishness. Finishes off very bitter. Not bad as German pilsensers go.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Lightly malty, strong dry bitter finish with hint of herbal spice. Excellent German pilsner style.

This is a pretty good German pilsner, no question about it. After a few, I noticed a little bitter aftertaste though, but not enough for me to complain!

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 I suppose if you like a classic German pilsner you would like this beer...but I don’t! No head, hoppy aroma, wheaty bitter flavor that is drinkable, but not enjoyable. I wouldn’t go out of my way to get it. Original rated 3/06/02. In my days of boozing I have come to appreciate the classic pilsner style. Although I still agree with myself of over 10 years ago that this is not a great beer. Tastes of adjunct ingredients. Would be tough to decifer between this and (insert American yellow fizzy beer). Oh well, next time the Koenig.

A smooth and tasty pils, full of flavour and a great bitterness. Finishes dry. Comes in a convenient 5L keg for the home.
