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.

yespr (32032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is medium sweet cornish and with bitterhops coming through. Flavour is bitterhops, grassy and mild cornish too. Extremely clean - towards a bit boring. Dry and bitter finish.

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2003
A pale yellow beer with a fantastic head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of hay. The flavor is sweet and brewmashy ending on a slight bitterness. An average pilsener on my tastebuds - or did miss something - or maybe my expectations were just too high.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very pale, lovely floral nose with a moderate bitter finish. One of Germany’s best known pilseners, and a nice one. 220499

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is hops and malts in a good balance. Flavour is strong hops, but some sweetness balancing it up.

omhper (19963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2007
Bottled. Clear pale golden, brief head. Grassy hops dominate the nose. Dry with bready malt, but some syrup comes through and spoils the party. Light bodied with rather mellow mouthfeel. Pleasant salty bitter finish. Feels like a good pils with too short lagering time.,

The Old Crown Inn, Messing. Keg. Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light and crisp. Very clean pale malts, whisper of sweetness. Light floralness. Hops are modest peel citrus, very modest, most noticeable in the aftertaste. Light crisp finish. Super drinkable and clean pils, very refreshing.

Draught in Germany
Just to confirm that, as for mass produced Lagers, Germany (Bitburger) and Belgium (Stella Artois) brew some better product than Holland, Denmark, Australia ones…
