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.

Pours a clear straw with plenty of effervescence. There is not quite a finger of head and it dissipates into nothingness very quickly. The nose has the distinct notes of pilsner malt. The flavor profile follows the nose. The body is light and the finish is clean, crisp, dry and bitter.
This is an enjoyable brew but not quite among the best of this style.

Pale straw colour. More pale than most lagers. Very large amount of bubbles streaming up the tall pilsner glass. An ok head and good lacing left sticking to the sides to the end of the drink.
Lovely herbal hop aroma. Sweet and leafy smelling.
The taste, as with the aroma, is of herbal hops with and is very delicate and pleasant. The finish is very dry with a lingering bitterness at the end of the sip.
There is a great mineral water mouthfeel with light carbonation.
Overall this is a superb German pilsener. Ticks all the boxes for the style and is characterful enough to be considered interesting as well as thirst quenching.
My mark out of one hundred would 87.
