First off, I found this beer in a case of cans in a random liquor store. So its probably not the best possible experience. Likewise, I'm told by my German friends that American Bitburger is not nearly as good as that found in Europe. That being said, the beer was pretty darn good.
Normally I don't go for a pilsner, but if more American pilsners were as good as this then I would. The beer had a golden amber color and LOTS of hops. I drank it at slightly above room temperature, which lent a lot more flavor to the beer.
I would recommend this beer for anyone that wants a typical European drinking experience. Sure, there are lots of better European beers, but Bitburger is a popular beer, whereas most of those microbrews are going to be more obscure. Think Guinness in Ireland, except that it is Germany.

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

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.

I'm planning on cloning a Tannenzaepfle pils this spring and was looking through "Brewing Classic Styles" for some ideas on German pilsners. Jamil Zainasheff has been brewing a Bitburger clone for several years that he calls "Myburger." After trying it I can see the appeal.
Less is more. This is the beer that you drink with a grilled hot dog, mustard, and bun, potato chips, dill pickle, and cole slaw. Add a baseball game on the tube and you're set for the afternoon. Although its the perfect summer time quaffing beer, it would also go well with German foods in fall or spring. Pair it with grilled wurst, mashed potatoes, and sour kraut, or Hasenpfeffer with semolina dumplings, and a side of caramelized carrots or Brussels sprouts, for example.
Clear, pale straw color, excellent, though subdued nose. Taste is a great balance of pale malt and noble hops, with a fine, dry finish. The right carbonation gives this a nice bite but the malt and hops shine through, and again, that dry finish at the end is perfect.
