Commercial Description

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.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2 into a Pilsener Glass. The back label has a "Best Before" date that reads 062911. Appearance: A super clear and bright yellow gold beer fills my glass and is capped by a bright white head of loose foam. This head settles quickly and sets up a thin wispy layer of slick lacing. Smell: Grassy, hay like and lightly floral hops blend with light biscuity pale maltiness. It is simple but nice. Taste: Just a slight malty sweetness seeks into a mostly dry pale biscuity malt character balanced by modest hay like and floral hops. The finish is fairly crisp feeling with mellow hop bitterness. Notes: It’s a solid clean and very drinkable lager.

    For the nose I found it to be skunky and even metallic. You can trace some malt but it's subtle. The head is not persistent and the robe is clear and pale. The taste delivers subtle notes of malt and cereals paired with some crispness that can be attributed to the acidity. A little bitterness at the end lets some aromas of hops come through. Not a bad beer but overall I don't think this pilsner is the best I tried so far. Best served around 10 to 12 degrees

    I lived in Germany for 2 1/2 years, and let me tell you, most germans i talked to don't like this stuff. it tastes horrible. it's like drinkin a budweiser that has been tainted with watered down ammonia. overall its one of the worst beer's i have had in germany.
