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.

What a true German pils should taste like. Avoid import bottles. Drink only tap or stubbi.

I would simply sum this beer up as being the best beer I have ever had the pleasure of drinking. A fantastic beer from a fantastic place. A shame more outlets here in the UK don’t stock it. Fortunately I friends in Germany who supply me with mass quantities for my personal consumption. Smooth and herbal with a sublime after taste, trouble is you just want more and more... Tastes even better on tap.

My sample said "Premium Beer", not Premium Pils. I'm not sure if they're the same. I paid $2.88 for a 4 pack of 16 ounce cans at Discount Liquors in Milwaukee, WI. 04/25/04. Hearty aroma. Medium yellow color. Average head. EXCELLENT, SIMPLY EXCELLENT bitter flavor and after-taste. It's not TOO bitter, mind you. But it's also not wimpy and light like most American brews. Very good character. I really, really like this beer. You can chug it. You can sip it. It goes well with food. An all around great beer. Strong presences of hops. This is my current favorite, and may end up my favorite of all time!

This beer just does it all for me. Have tried numerable german pilsners but this one just hits my palate perfect. Rich and hoppy, too easy to drink. Have not had the pleasure of tasting it on tap, but it is awsome from the bottle. It roicks from the mini-keg as well.

My favorite Pilsner when on tap. The bottled version is not nearly as good. Dry, crisp, subtle hop bitterness. Light body. Small bubbles with a big, creamy head.

This is what a true, classic pilsner should taste like..Slightly bitter, clean, and refreshing. A wonderfully pale, flowery aroma. a clear, pale yet bright color. Flavor starts off strong yet not overpowering, finishes off cleanly.
