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.

stouby (4859) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2005
Can, at home (030615). Golden with a small creamy head. Aroma moderate malty and hoppy. Flavor moderate sweet and distinct bitter, long duration. Light body, watery, lively carbonated.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Pours a dark golden yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aromas of grains, grass, floral hops. Flavors of cheerios, with a nice hop finish.

wxman (1865) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Bottle. Pours a bright yellow with a big head that reduces but stays. Aroma is mild flowery hops with some malt. Clean refreshing bready taste with some hop bitterness. Quite good, but Bitburger is German for BudMiller Coors.

ganache (6087) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 11, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2017 A classic Pils. Bitter, dry, nutty, hoppy. Good with a heavy meal, reasoned popularity in Germany. [2005.12.11: 3.0]

Finally getting a hold of this in the States, a 500mL can marked 2017.04.21 on the bottom (and a year earlier). Nose is sweet and lightly perfumed, a little sickly tbh, with grainy pils character showing and a little mineral. Pours ultra-clear golden into the glass, above-average carbonation and a soapy bright white head. Taste lightly but very persistently sweet (I imagine this would cloy for some) and very, very grainy -- one acclimates quickly, but it’s a little dirty and doesn’t contribute any deeper malt flavor. Also lingers to cover the long aftertaste. The citrus up top is still bright and lemony, very drinkable light-medium body and there is a bit of malt feel to be found there among the watery swashes. Not terribly hoppy but more than many, and maintains a vibrant freshness. It’s a set-it-and-forget about it corporate lager, and not terrible. [2017.03.13: 2.6]

Fukito (1064) - Santiago, CHILE - DEC 10, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2006 can - December 2005 Pours pale golden with a respectable white head that lasts enough. Aroma is clean, bready and grassy. Taste is bitter and dry, maybe a little fruity and yeasty, i found it very subtle and pleasant. Aftertaste is very short and light, but you can feel the lingering afterbitteness. Not memorable, but a nice german pilsener that i would gladly drink again if offered.

rsans (125) - Pont-Rouge, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Bottle. Light yellow color with a small white head and a fine lacing which does not last very long. Malty with a herbal aroma. Strong long lasting hops flavor . Medium body. A fine bitter aftertaste which is to my liking. Way above other mass-produced beer. Hum, hum this may become my favourite for “session drinking”.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2005
12oz bottle from 24 variety pack: fizzy, pale yellow in color, aroma of malts. Similar to the domestic fizzy yellow in apperance, aroma, taste. Dry dusty taste, bitter aftertaste.

Ayumbomb (63) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Never have I ever poured a beer down the drain because it was so unbearable, but this beer made me do it. A Milwaukee "Beast" Best might deserve comments like "It takes 3 or 4 of these before it tastes good," but this was a whole new ball game. The worst beer I have ever consumed, no lie!

Siroy (220) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
[Bottle 341 ml, served chilled, fresh, Blind tasting test with Mario D’Eer, dates are unknown] This was a Blind tasting test; I didn’t know what I was drinking.
This beer is sold in Quebec and i’ve had the chance to try it often. I tasted it as the SAQ Beer classes as well and my notes were exactly the same!

This is the best ’Classic German Pilsner’ I’ve had so far. Starts with malt, ends with hops. That’s it. True. This is a good beer to drink when you’re thirsty.
Of course, there is nothing special with that beer when you like strong ones. But you have to admit that compared to the style, this one is excellent.
Dispite all this, I cant rate it high since its boring overall compared to beers in general.

stubby (334) - Santee, California, USA - NOV 19, 2005
Probably the highest marks I would give this style. Very refreshing, and a great example of noble German hoppiness. I think I could beer bong this and enjoy it a lot more than coors light. Almost creamy as it warms. Lip-smackingly good.
