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.

One of my favorite beers. After living in Bitburg, Germany for 7 years it brings back many memories. As for the beer it is a crisp and bitter beer that can be enjoyed both ice cold and slightly chilled. The US imported beer is slightly different than the German. So if you get a chance try the original. However, you will not be disappointed with either.

Bottle enjoyed at Bavaria. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Bland hop and grain aromas. Clean and light with mild bread, grain, and malt highlights. one bitterness from the nondescript hops. Average body and mouthfeel.

ContemplateBeer (1501) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 19, 2014
Aroma: Moderate grass with semi sweet, crackery malts; very light white grape. Appearance: Transparent gold with a foamy white head that sustained throughout. Flavor: Grass perseveres with semi sweet crackery malts; dries out beautifully with minimal bitterness. The word "elegant" comes to mind. Grassy, but not a grass bomb. Perfectly balanced. Palate: Light body, slick texture, average carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Best pils to have touched my lips.

Good solid German beer. Delicious beer for some beer pong or just to sit back and sample with the boys.

WHAT THE BITBURGER WEBSITE SAYS, and I quote: "Note first the bright, fresh golden colour and rich frothy head so typical of this elegant Pilsner beer. Its refined herbal notes are delicately poised, followed by a nutty and honeyed aftertaste. The overall impression of this gently sparkling beer is one of deep harmony, with the unmistakeable bitterness of the hops balanced and contained by an agreeable, mellow sweetness in the body." Say I: "Ya Vol", as the remaining 16.09 FL. OZ. can of Pils gets placed, gently, into the pilsner glass.

Had with our bjcp tasting group. Pours a light straw yellow. Some maltiness. Nice floral aroma. Very nice. Somewhat dry and light bodied. Nice beer.
