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.

This beer poured a golden yellow color with a small white head that dissipated quickly. This beer is clear enough that you could almost read a book through it. Aroma and taste are of graininess and the hop bitterness is evident as well. Has a nice mouthfeel. I have come to appreciate the style and this is a very drinkable beer.

Oktoberfest at the Biergarden in Boca. Poured a deep yellow-gold into a large dimpled mug. Two finger head. Aroma is straw, hay, grass, and bread. Taste is similar. Slightly bitter finish. Light body. Not a bad beer.

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 (1365) - 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 (295) - 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.
