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.

DJC (238) - USA - MAR 9, 2008
Pale yellow body and a head that diminished very quickly. No real lacing to speak of. The aroma is clean and bitter -- nice hop profile. The flavor resembles the aroma, yet some malts appear and keep the hops in check. Good balance for the style. Average carbonation, but what impressed me was how dry this beer was. Extremely drinkable, and I would definitely love to try this fresh from the tap someday.

Luneylane (36) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 21, 2016
A bottle from the basement of Shing Kong Mitsukoshi, opposite Taipei main station, drunk at home. Aroma: hoppy, just... Appearance: clear, amber, some lacing. Palate: well-carbonated, astringent. Taste: ultimately watery, but bitterness shines through. Not bad, but not as good as Pilsner Urquell.

UXO (1493) - CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
Appearance: clear straw with one finger of rocky white head diminishing rapidly a thin cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: corn syrup, crackery malt, bready yeast, grass. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-mild bitter, light tart. (5/10) Medium-light body, lively to moderate carbonation, crisp and clean medium duration off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5) Danger, Will Robinson! It says “Premium” on the label, so in accordance with my theory, it must be terrible, right? Well… not really. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s nothing great - but it’s a long drive from terrible. Easily drinkable, with a fairly clean finish. For a mass-produced beer, it’s actually not bad. (Cute little pun on the label, too - “Bitte ein Bit”.) I’d certainly rather have this, than a Coors Light. Doesn’t get any better as it warms, though, so get it gone and move on! (11/20)

Alusmamuts (1566) - LATVIA - SEP 20, 2016
Golden with medium white head. Malty aroma. Medium bitterness with medium sourness and quite strong maize sweetness. Slightly sour aftertaste with bitter notes.

Beerclubsa (65) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 18, 2016
330ml bottle from Liquor City Claremont. Pours a perfectly clear golden yellow with tightly packed, rocky head with good retention and some lacing. Aromas of cracker malt and some bread and lots of corn. Medium carbonation, light body. Flavour is upfront bitterness which recedes quickly into a sweet syrupy malt character with lots of corn. Not as drinkable as a pils should be.

Input a great review which went AWOl. It tastes and smells of sweet FA. OK. a Tick. Fuck off.

ziobarba2000 (45) - Roma, ITALY - AUG 31, 2016
Fusto da 5 lt. Schiuma eccessiva e persistente. Colore oro chiaro. Carbonatura insufficiente. Aroma di grano e frumento. Gusto piatto con finale ferroso. Consiglio 2/10

Maracuja05 (543) - Mainz, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2016
[backlog] Standard Pils in my region. Acceptable for a mass pils but nothing special. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.5/5

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - AUG 28, 2016
- hellgelbe Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - schwach wahrnehmbare Aromen nach Hopfen und Malz - passende Carbonisierung - geschmacklich relativ mild mit einem dünnen Körper - Malz und Hopfen bleiben in einer ausgewogenen Balance, ohne aber sonderlich hervorstechende Eigenschaften zu zeigen - der Abgang wird dann endgültig wässrig Fazit: Solides deutsches Durchschnitts-Pils

Fisler (396) - Bamberg, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2016
Na dann, ran an die Undustrieplörre: Optisch pissig hellgold. In der Nase reisig maischig. Im Trunk sehr maischig bitter. Herb im Abgang, da ganz okay, ebbt aber schnell ab. Zweifelhaftes Getränk.
