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.

    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.
