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.

Tall, smooth. Purchased for World Cup enjoyment. My supply ran out as did Schweinsteger’s . Definately my favorite German Pilsner.

330 ml bottle. Clear pale golden colour, thin white head. Grainy-malty aroma with a aint hoppy note. The flavour is mild, dryish, grainy malty. Watery and boring.

My never ending quest for the perfect pilsner -- a style that I love at the end of a session -- continues with this German mainstream. Have had this many times -- watching zombie movies in the basement, at the bleachers listening to the Misfits as the sun begins to rise, in the backyard -- oh, but I digress. Classic example of the dry & tart pilsner, a delicate folding of brew flavours that hopheads (& yes I include myself among them) often mistake as uninteresting or as a fail. Seriously, if you don’t get the pilsner style do this: cleanse your palate, take the sip, dig that crazy vitamin C crystal like tartness & wait for the subtle dry finish. Sure, this ain’t the pilsner that fuels my quest of the sublime, but its better than some ratings here would have you believe c

Faint malty nose with a slight nuttiness. Medium-to-light body. Pleasantly bitter and well balanced. No real flaws. A pleasant light lager.

Bottle from Sully’s Crystal clear light golden color with a good sized moderate lasting frothy white head. Loads of DMS when this was first cracked then the skunk seemed to slowly crawl away. Sweet bready pils with a hint of ash and aluminum foil. Light floral hop aromas as well as hints of light pomme fruit. The flavor is light bready pils, earthy spicy hop, a bit of sulfur and metal with some sweet fruit. Uhm yeah, I’m not going to finish this bottle.

The Old Crown Inn, Messing. Keg. Bright clear gold beer, tidy white head. Palate is light and crisp. Very clean pale malts, whisper of sweetness. Light floralness. Hops are modest peel citrus, very modest, most noticeable in the aftertaste. Light crisp finish. Super drinkable and clean pils, very refreshing.

Cimbasso (256) - - DEC 12, 2014
A golden pilsner sampled from a bottle. White head, but not much carbonation. Good malt flavours which are full and almost creamy. The hops have a really tasty, grassy bitterness. Excellent balance, really good, characterful flavours and a good, long finish. A very good pilsner from a top German brewery.

vickey9 (551) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 12, 2014
A clear gold with a little white head. Aroma of hops. Body is light, texture thin, carbon enough. Taste is bitter. Palate is overhelmed by malt and hops. Bitter aftertaste. B@Christmas event.
