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.

Bière blonde, translucide, peu mousseuse et moyennement effervescente. Le nez est timide, voire absent. Un peu de grains frais, sucrés, certes, mais vraiment rien de plus. En bouche, c’est la même «game» qui se joue. Mes points bonis sont distribués pour le côté rafraîchissant et la buvabilité de cette bière (je pourrais en siffler 4 ou 5 pintes lors d’une soirée sans trop de problème). Mais est-ce que cela ferait de moi un meilleur humain? #not

#2950. Thx! to Man-ki. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ “Panda group launch 2013 tasting”. BBF 03/02/2014. Finally trying this one. Clear light golden with zero head. Nose is that of soap & cleaning agent lemon + sweet grains. Taste is surprisingly heavy on bitter hop oil & extracts, soap, citrus cleaning agent, apple, sweet plastic, pretty bitter floral hop oil finish. Oily body. Only marginally better than most pale lagers & the distinction in taste is not even necessary a positive one.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Taste lightly bitter, crisp. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.
