When it comes to Pilseners, I generally lean towards the Czech versions. Perhaps that a dumb bias, but this style generally doesn't do too much for me. Having said that, the Bitburger Pils is a giant amongst the style and is worthy of some attention.
An surprisingly enjoyable Pilsener which is far smoother than most on the market. While the traditional hoppy characteristics of the Pils are still weigh heavily on the palette, Bitburger has an exceptional clean, almost mellow, maltiness in both its aroma and taste. Quite dry, in the same lines as the Asahi Super Dry, but far more refined.
Pours a very clear, bright yellow sunshine tone, with a thick frothy head. No collar forms on this and the lacing is minimal, but that's to be expected with this style. Certainly an enjoyable brew and I can sense this one being popular sitting on the sundeck come spring and summer.

I love this stuff - I can’t add anything to the reviews that hasn’t been said (and said better than I ever will), so I will just say that I whole heartedly recommend it to anybody looking for a great sessionable beer that you won’t get tired of. Fantastic with all types of food, especially stuff like pizza or wings, I am a definite fan. I purchase the tall cans from the LCBO here outside Toronto for $2.40 CAD each

On-tap. Shaker glass @ Freiburg (Barcelona). Golden color & Crystal clear appearance. White froth & fairly good retention. Herbs & mint, flowers & honey to the nose. Sweet maltiness at first sip. Light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Clean bitterness, minty freshness & spicy touch. Dry bitter finish. Easy drinkable.

Although I enjoy this one either way, it's best served at room temperature. It isn't as smooth as some other pilsners I've tried, but it does have a good quality to it. I fell in love with this one while stationed in Baumholder, Germany. I was still a wannabe beer connoisseur and Bitburger was the first one to intrigue me.
