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.

Couleur dorée, petite mousse blanche. Nez malté un peu épicé. Gout légerement houblonné, un peu amer, mais bière très aqueuse.

On draft, big lasting head, typical german pils excellent on a hot day to kill thirst. Quite bitter, long finish.

Bottle. Over BBD but still good. Typical pilsner. German style. Nice bitter finish. Reminded me a bit of Warsteiner. Smooth finish. Okay.

12 oz. bottle. Poured a clear straw yellow with a thin white head that dissipated quickly. Taste of biscuit, caramel malts and grassy finish. Medium carbonation, thin body. Meh.

Not really interesting....the aroma is that of dough with a hint of caramel. The appearance is an uninspiring straw with a really short and disappearing head. Very light-bodied and borderline watery. The palate is inoffensive and short. It’s drinkable but not memorable.

Classic pilsner aroma. Don’t know what i was expecting, but this was just another pilsner in my book. Perhaps a bit more grainy than most pilsners.
