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.

fhoublon (314) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Canette de 500 ml achetée dans un Maxi local. Dégustée le 4 avril 2008. Bière blonde limpide. Mousse peu, col mince et éphémère. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de céréales et de houblon. Très douce, peu sucrée, très amère. Goût d’amandes, de céréales, un peu métallique. Style typique des bières allemandes. Manque un peu de caractère.

Bottle. I’m not sure what it means when it says this is an ’agreeable’ beer, but in the bottled state I tried it I found it somehow too bitter, too sweet and had a lack of body. That doesn’t seem possible when I write it out in words like that, and I most certainly don’t agree with it

Clear pale yellow beer, small aery white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: grains, sweet malts, little bit of hay. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty bitter, bit sourish, grassy hops, malty, grains. Aftertaste: bitter, grassy hops, some cow fodder. Very German of course.

Achei uma cerveja um pouco amarga para uma pilsen. Porem respeita a lei de pureza, diferente das brasileiras.

Backlog. Tried it a number of times, primarily on tap. Some caramel with a hint of citrus and a touch of sweetness.

Chopper925 (115) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle. Colour is a light yellow, small white head. Aroma is somewhat fruity and malty. Taste is light sour with a extreme bitterness, and a metallic mouthfeeling. Carbonation is average, with watery mouthfeel, very bitter finish. Has never been one of my favourite beers and will never be one of them.
