COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cimbasso (234) - - DEC 12, 2014
A golden pilsner sampled from a bottle. White head, but not much carbonation. Good malt flavours which are full and almost creamy. The hops have a really tasty, grassy bitterness. Excellent balance, really good, characterful flavours and a good, long finish. A very good pilsner from a top German brewery.

A clear gold with a little white head. Aroma of hops. Body is light, texture thin, carbon enough. Taste is bitter. Palate is overhelmed by malt and hops. Bitter aftertaste. B@Christmas event.

superspak (2828) - Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2014
330 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 4/26/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear bright golden straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good clean balance of pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice clean balance and solid robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a nice German pilsener style. All around clean balance and solid robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Rotaldinho (102) - Paris, FRANCE - NOV 29, 2014
Grainy pils malts on the nose with light spice and a hint of earthiness. Presents a very clean and crisp palate with light grain flavors leading to a crisp, spicy, clean hop finish. Light and dry.
