Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a mini mug.
Appearance: Looks like a German pils to me! Straw-colored, lightly carbonated with a very, very fine head.
Smell: This is amazing. Beautiful (and I mean gorgeous) hop aroma penetrates my consciousness. A mild orange or lemon flavor to the nose and just a touch of malt. Just great here.
Taste: Good. Somewhat mild, but that's to be expected. The hops are right up front with this; not a lot of foreplay. Very, very light malt tinge to it, and that citrus can't be missed. It's quite bitter, without much sweetness to it at all. Fits the category to a T.
Mouthfeel: It's got a great bite to it. After the initial shock, it pulls back just a bit and warms the soul just enough to allow its entry into the stomach. The hoppy bitterness sticks around long after the drink has been taken; all in all, pretty good.
Drinkability: I could do this regularly. For me, it's not a session beer, but that's just a taste issue. All things considered, it's a great example of a German pils.
I tried Bitburger for the first time in Germany...it was a touch better there, as I recall, but then again overseas shipping has to mess with your flavor just a tad. Still, this one is WAY better than some other imports I've had lately, and I have to say that I am glad I picked up a BIT this week.

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.
