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.

A very average German Pils, one of the most commonly known beers in Germany but yet it misses a specific character.

nephirem (67) - CROATIA - FEB 12, 2016
Pours clear yellow colour with small, short lasting white head. Typical smell of yeast and malts, however very faint. There are some unpleasant notes to it, tho. Medium body with soft carbonation. Slightly bitter taste. Aroma is weak, malts, yeast, a bit grassy. Aftertaste is bitter and slightly unpleasant and metallic. Overall, below average. Quite poor. Avoid.

DylansDad (520) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 2, 2016
Offensive aroma from the can of rotten vegetables, corn and leaf litter. Settles in the glass to a bland generic grainy malt smell. Taste is generic lager, not pilsnery, sweet and tart. Carbonation helps keep the interest up. Finishes slightly peppery, lemony, light bitter, not undrinkable, but the sweet glugginess builds at the back of the throat and gets me hankering for a GOOD beer.

Jabah (285) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Sampled on Singapore Airlines. Kind of bland in flavor, with light grain and grassy notes. Some caramel in the color and taste. Flatter feel. Average at best as far as a pilz is concerned. Think I’d prefer a Beck’s. (German brewed or St. Louis brewed).

Can, sample from pilsner tasting, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours golden with small head. Aroma is bland, some grain. The taste is light hops, grain, light sweetness. Not terrible, but not very good either.

Bogus88 (122) - POLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Puszka 0,5 l. Aromat słodowy, głównie nuty zbożowe, w tle nuty trawiaste. Barwa żółta/jasnozłota, klarowna, choć widocznych jest trochę pływających drobinek. Piana biała o średniej obfitości, pęcherzyki w większości średnie, szybko znika bez śladu. Smak lekko słodki i lekko gorzki, dominują nuty słodowe. Na finiszu goryczka krótka, ziołowo-trawiasta. Wysycenie średnie.

Piana biała, średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa. Na początku obfita ale szybko się dziurawi i zostawia cienką warstwę. Troszkę koronkuje na szkle. Aromat wyraźnie słodowy, bez nut chmielowych. Do tego dochodzi maślany diacetyl i utlenienie w postaci mokrego kartonu. Dziwne ponieważ data przydatności to jeszcze pół roku. W smaku nuty słodowe i średnio wyczuwalny diacetyl. Po nich pojawia się bardzo dziwna zalegająca goryczka która raczej nie pochodzi od chmielu. Wysycenie średnie do mocnego, piwo dosyć wodniste. Nie spodziewałem się po tym piwie czegoś zaskakującego ale wady które wyszły za bardzo mi przeszkadzają.

Hozza a megszokott német minőséget, olyan mint egy kutyaharapás macskaszőrível.
