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.

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.

kajser27 (1067) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 28, 2016
Clear, golden-yellow colored, small white head. Aroma is of malt, grainy and cereal, some sulphur, bit herbal notes. Taste is light+ sweet malt and grains, cereal, sulphur again, light+ herbal bitterness, dry finish. Light+ body, average carbonation, slight creaminess, crisp. Decent pilsener, nothing too exciting.

Probably it suffered a damage...wet carton, honey, deep golden/amber, foam is absent, light body, law carbonation, taste of resin, honey, very sugary and sticky, bitter doesn’t exist...i must retry it.

AntiusII (13) - Bromölla, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2016
Appearance: pale clear yellow color. Minimal head. Aroma: bready notes. Taste: low bitterness, some acidity not in a geuze kind of way more like a synthetic vitamin-c. Palate: small body, thin texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: When I want a malty beer this is an alternative, but its still a light lager. There are malty lagers with mor huge aroma than this one

Muito boa essa German Pilsner, lúpulo saaz saindo bem no aroma, amargo no ponto. Drinkability altíssima.
