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.

Better than I was expecting. The 660 ml bottle is bigger than Id normally select for a weekday evening, but by the end I wouldnt have refused another. The aroma was the most interesting feature: a sort of musty furniture polish smell that put me in mind of ancient university libraries and museums in English county towns.... The things beer does to your imagination!

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Poured a clear, bright, golden color with a tight 1/4 inch of head. The nose was of malt, herbal and grassy hops with a hint of honey. The taste started with decent malt backing, balanced by a subtle hop bite in the middle and at the finish. Drinkability was very high. The taste of this beer is nothing groundbreaking its simply a good, middle-of-the-road German beer.

So-so. Nothing to write home about. I guess the $8.99 price for a 12-pack says it all.

frankenkitty (2007) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Golden with a fading white head and delicate carbonation. Herbal hop aroma with light grains. Flavor was balanced, ending with light bitters. Thin but crisp, light and refreshing. Cornfield and RAYBOY01 pressured me into having one of these, and Im rather glad that they did.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2005
Botle: Crystal clear, very palr gold with a rocky, sudsy white head. Classic PL/Pils aroma - Spicy, herbal hops, buttery, corny malts and a bit of lemon. The flavour is likewise classic - foamy sweet malts and herbal spicy hops with some lingering white pepper tones. Quenching and nicely done, although the corn loses it a few points.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle from Sainsburys. Golden yellow with diminishing head. Gorgeous fresh hop aroma, oily, herbal, grassy. Spritzy mouthfeel with bags of hop in the dry long finish. Great stuff.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2007 Retasted 15/03/2007. 330ml bottle shared with 4 others at Island Bay. Very very tired. No head, sweet aroma, all the hop character is gone except for a mild bitterness. A shame to see these German beers in such a manner. Dropped everything a little but not as low as it should be - I know this is a better beer (even if only slightly better). Tasted 29/09/2005. 330ml bottle at Cellar-Vate tasting, Backbencher. Pale gold, crystal clear, low carbonation and a thin, white, head. Lovely honey-ish malt and herbacious nose. Flavour is slightly more hop angled - restrained sweetness up front and a bitter herbal, rosemary-like, lemony, hop flavour. A bit short but easy drinking.

harrisoni (17594) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
660ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pale gold with thin white head. Lemon, pale malt Saaz/Hallertau hop aromas. Good pilsener flavour in mouth and then good hoppy finish. I like it.
