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.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 This is version that is imported in the USA by Bitburger Import Co of Venice, Florida. Decent head that didnt last to the end. Flavor was of hops with hints of bitterness. It was just an average drink. Not a special; beer. Received another bottle for Christmas 2009. The beer has more flavor of bitter hops tham most pils. I upgraded my opriginal score.

I have drank several cases of this stuff. Its light on the hops flavor but heavy on the bitter side. I like bitter so this is a favorite.

Poured yellow with white fluffy head. Aroma was mostly yeast. The head left good lacing, and it was refreshing, if a little skunky? Not bad , but I am not a huge pils fan. And where is the STRONG HOP TASTE?

Very nice Pilsner. One rater spoke of similarity to Pilsner Urquell and Warsteiner and I agree, giving the nod to Urquell. Nice bitter begining, while leaving your mouth not too dry. Wish I could make mine this good!

Kevin (2193) - New Mexico, USA - DEC 16, 2004
tap. clear yellow with a fat white head. wee bit skunky. taste is sour grape and raw grain. finish is at least non threatening. at least it doesnt leave a mark. but on the plus side i was drinking this in the company of a stunningly beautiful woman so it wasnt that bad.

Another fizzy yellow beer. Rather boring. Medium head, slighty bitter. Almost the same as a Warsteiner Verum, but not as bitter. Nothing special.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 13, 2004
Bottle, from The Alex in Derby. Lager Beer, from the fridge. Malty smell, lagery taste, quite full bodied, quite filly. Not bad.

cAPSLOCK (156) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2004
I dont know why this mediovre beer gets such good ratings. This is, I suppose the german budweiser. Fairly hoppy since they spike it with hop oils. Good for a party I suppose.

Can (BB 10/2005)
Yellow with decent foamy white head. Not much aroma: slightly sharp hoppy. Good bitter hops in a palate with long bitter aftertaste. Plain but balanced, Urquell type of pilsener.
