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.

Not very fond of pilsener myself, but I wouldn’t mind to drink it with a couple of friends on a hot sunny day.

a typical pils in my opinion. straw yellow, little to no head. light in body, and unfortunately light in flavor as well. grassy hops and a bit of breadiness, but not a whole lot going on. Too bad, cuz it’s nice, just to reserved."

Pure golden clear colored pilsner with a distinct "pungent" aroma. It almost smells like a fresh opened bottle of 100% virgin olive oil and it has a similar color to olive oil. Crisp taste with an astringent almost tart finish. Lovely balance and worth the try

AdiBeer (1138) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Aroma: intense grain and bread malts. Appearance: light gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, soft carbonation, light flowers, grain malts, dry in the average-long finish. Overall: OK Pilsener, but nothing too spectacular. Can at Viva Tropic, Port de Alcudia.

A super clear and bright yellow gold beer fills my glass and is capped by a bright white head of loose foam. This head settles quickly and sets up a thin wispy layer of slick lacing. Grassy, hay like and lightly floral hops blend with light biscuity pale maltiness. It is simple but nice. Just a slight malty sweetness seeks into a mostly dry pale biscuity malt character balanced by modest hay like and floral hops. The finish is fairly crisp feeling with mellow hop bitterness.

digopossobon (291) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 22, 2014
Aroma lembrando a cereais, bastante refrescante, um pouco de lúpulo. Bem adequado, porém bastante suave. Espuma formou bem, porém persistiu somente uma fina camada de espuma. A cor é bem adequada, um amarelo translúcido pálido com tendências ao dourado. Refrescante, muito suave, de um amargo excessivo e metálico. Não me agradou. Bem desequilibrada. De qualquer forma, sabor bem melhor que o da versão em garrafa. Não pretendo repetir a dose.

Tap. Pours a transparent golden with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma and taste of bready malts.

Can from the LCBO. Clear pale amber with a one finger white head that persists for a while. Nose is grains, light toffee and some honey. Light sweet with a metallic bitterness that is not that pleasant, Mouth is thin and watery.

Tap at Salon piva. Aroma metallic and astringent, hinting at poor beer. Clear piss colour, small head. Taste is metallic, astringent, dumbing. Not good.
