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.

Bitburger is not one of my favorite German beers, but it is very drinkable, and is a good rendition of a Pilsner beer. The color and aroma are very good for this style, IMHO. This a good non-offensive beer for people making the jump from America light lagers to imports.

Woo-Hoo, my first review here!Great beer and great price, $6.99 for a 8 pack of 16.9 0z. cans. A bit more hoppy than most import Pils...and that ain’t a bad thing! Love ’em straight from the cooler on a hot Summer day.

Closer to my idea of a German Pilsener than the Warsteiner I just had. Lovely aroma and very dry.

I’ve drank an ocean of Bitburger over the years. I even used to go to Bitburg to party, just for ’fresher’ beer. It’s one of my favorites. Drink it with salt & vinegar potato chips!

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2003 Lean, no frills German Pils that boasts one of the hoppier finishes I've encountered. Very dry, but with a nice sweet malt lingering in the background. This was my father's beer, so I have a special place in my heart for it. Definitely among the better pilsners in the world.

A nice pilsener. You can taste the hops here. They are not strong but they are there. Somewhat ’Heineken-esque’ in flavor without the skunky aftertaste. U.S. macros could learn something from this one.

Lovely, drinkable German pilsener. I had this on tap and it was just so nice and crisp.

Well, well, well. Another German pilsner. I’ve really got to try these side-by-side someday, so I can tell the difference. This appears to be a bit grainier tasting than most. Like a liquid yeast roll. Smooth, easy-drinking. Not very hoppy-bitter.
