3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
When it comes to Pilseners, I generally lean towards the Czech versions as this style of beer generally doesn't do too much for me. Having said that, the Bitburger Pils is a giant amongst the style and is worthy of some attention.
An surprisingly enjoyable Pilsener which is far smoother than most on the market. While the traditional hoppy characteristics of the Pils are still weigh heavily on the palette, Bitburger has an exceptional clean, almost mellow, maltiness in both its aroma and taste. Quite dry, in the same lines as the Asahi Super Dry, but far more refined.
Pours a very clear, bright yellow sunshine tone, with a thick frothy head. No collar forms on this and the lacing is minimal, but that's to be expected with this style. Certainly an enjoyable brew and I can sense this one being popular sitting on the sundeck come spring and summer.

Bijna geen schuim te krijgen, maar de geur valt goed mee en de smaak de eerste slokken ook, maar hoe meer je ervan drinkt, hoe slechter het wordt

Can. Pours a golden body, with an average white head that diminishes fairly quickly, leaving a fair lace. Malty aroma, with light bitter taste, very tasty and malty. Watery texure, light to medium body, average carbonation. A very nice pils, especially for it’s price.
