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.

MikeT (76) - Hollis, New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours yellow with small white head. Well balanced mal & hopps aroma, with a more hoppy flavor. Nice German Pils.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 30, 2005
Pours a translucent gold with a nice white head....this is the exported version. I wish I had tasting notes from the non-ex version. I have fond memories of it. This one just isnt crisp enough for me. It lacks the nice hop bite backing the firm malty, grassy taste of the non-export stuff. Finish is bitter and carbonation is light, but it just seems to lean to forward toward a sour maltiness. Typical of the Bit available on the US bases in Germany. The better Bit is to be had in the local pubs, on draught.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 27, 2005
Herbacious nose with some metal hints and sweet malt; well balanced; it has a nice smooth texture and body backing up some tangy bitterness, again metallic notes. Without the detracting ferrous hints Im so sensitive to, this would be a very nice brew, otherwise its just good.

Dorqui (2220) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 24, 2005
Compact and adherent foam, discreet persistence. Limpid yellow color much and bubbly one. Good aspect. Mineral water and malt notes, light and watery scent. Fresh and prickly taste; much simple and without pretensions. Pungent and moderately bitter finish.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2005
Pours yellow with small white head. Good amount of both maltiness and hoppiness up front in the aroma. Grassy, hoppy flavor, and as others mentioned quite hoppy for a German Pilsener.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2005
Bottle poured dark yellow with a small fizzy head. Aroma of light malt and wet dishrag. Flavor is crisp, grassy with a light hops finish. Not bad at all.

Fiend (104) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 4, 2005
A pungent aroma fills your nose as the thin head fizzles away. This beer has a crisp, strong flavor that tricked me into thinking this beer was a higher alcohol content than the 4.8%. For a Pilsner I was surprised at the strong hop presence. Pretty good German beer!

BeerandBlues2 (12836) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 29, 2005
Pours clean gold with a small white head that dissipates quickly leavinf a faint rim around the glass. Sour malt aroma with a hoppy nose and notes of yeast. Hoppy and sour malt flavor with faint olive notes. Fizzy and light palate that feels silky near the end.

edden (925) - cow- lumbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2005
3/28/05: Plastic Bottle.
Honey aroma (smells like a weak version of Honey Robitussin Cough Syrup). Yellow bodied. Light honey-lemon flavor. Better than a typical Pils.

ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Sweet aroma that smells like grain. Grassy flavor. Hoppy finish. Not bad, but Im not a fan of Pilseners.
