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.

Pours golden straw color with very thick foamy head. Some lacing.

Smells a little like hay and hops sort of hiding in there. I’m not overly impressed.

Taste is slightly of lemon and grain. There’s some definite hops in there. I like that lingering bitterness, lasting well after swallow.

Mouthfeel is watery, yet finishes very dry. It’s light. It finishes bitter and crisp.

Overall it reminds me of Budweiser as far as taste goes. But this is better. I would consider buying it again. But only if price was competitive with Budweiser.

A mid golden yellow coloured beer with a thick white head. A light, metallic hop aroma, some evidence of pithy citrus fruit. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is hoppy, pithy citrus and metallic. This is followed by a mild, dry malt flavour that does balance the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50cl can from the convenience store. Pours a clear yellow with a high white head that leaves impressive lacing. Nose is of hay, light cereals, pils and slight cardboard. Taste is dry and features some interesting cereals and a light earthy hops presence. Some cardboard as well but the can is not even past its best before date (05/06/2015)? Body is light and carbonation high, causing massive burps and feeling watery. Overall an OK pilsener, I think I need to try it fresher someday.

Muito parecida com a heineken. Se servir em uma taça, sem a garrafa perto, se confunde tranquilamente.

Całkiem całkiem. Aromat słaby, wygląd średni, a w smaku jak na pilsa przystało.

Bardzo jasne, słomkowe, piana obfita. Goryczka dość wyczuwalna, przyjemna i ziołowa. Nuty mleczne, ale jednocześnie orzeźwiające i lekkie

Golden colour with white head. Almost without aroma, just some hoppy, metallic notes, maybe little citrus. Taste is similar with soft carbonation, watery finish. Average pilsener.

tightslice (339) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 18, 2015
On tap at Gourmet Haus Staudt in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light hay and biscuits.. Some earthy mineral notes. Taste is the same. Very light and nothing much to speak of. Quite boring.

czlowiekwiadro (358) - POLAND - APR 15, 2015
zapach słodowy, z nutami gorzkich ziół, do tego sporo mleka albo śmietany i trochę kurzu, ogólnie przyjemny. kolor słomkowy, bardzo jasny, klarowny. piana obfita, ale średnio trwała, niezbyt ładna. w smaku dość wytrawne, lekkie i orzeźwiające. trochę czuć kukurydzą. goryczka zdecydowanie dominuje w smaku, bardzo czysta, ziołowa i przyjemna. nie jest bardzo wysoka, ale wyraźna. mimo wytrawności jest dość okrągłe w ustach, przypomina tłuste mleko. nasycenie raczej niskie
