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.

Draught at Bishops Arms Växjö, Sweden.
Light yellow color with a white head. Very malty scent that feels like it’s going to be a boring beer. Taste is surprising, not malty but refreshing, a bit sweet and hoppy. Nice bitterness and all in all an ok beer.

Extremely pale yellow colour without head to speak of. Highllly carbonated and thus fresh. It taste a bit rough in your mouth - not excatly bitter, rather sour. Aroma is slightly hoppy.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Pours slightly hazy golden yellow with faint white head. Aroma of grains and lemon-grass. Flavor is more of the same. I agree with TomDecapolis "your standard German Pilsner"

TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 14, 2006
Bottled. Pours a lightly hazy light golden with a small white head. Aroma is just like sun tea. Sweet with some lemon, tea and various grains. Also picking up some grass. Flavors of the same...your standard German Pilsener.

Clear golden amber. A good hoppy pilsner for the mass market. Dry boxboard finish. Nice.

zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - FEB 25, 2006
A fairly typical german pils- barley malts and some floral hops, drinkable but let’s face it at heart I’m an ale guy. But it is pleasant enough and lacks that strong metallic zing you get from other german beers so I like it for what it is- a smooth Teutonic pils. The commercial description is apt-"agreeable" is precisely the word for this.

very pale, easy drinking. Good example of a classic pils, bit mettalic though

2.5
raymow (1860) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Golden yellow in color with the typical slight skunky taste that is the norm for German beers. Not a bad pilsner, though, although it does have a slightly odd taste that I can’t quite pinpoint. Drinkable, but slightly odd.

2.8
VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Clear golden body with a white head. Light grassy, hoppy aroma. Smooth mildly hopped taste Aftertaste is a little bready and slightly dry. This meets my expectations for a German pilsner.
