I'm partial to Bitburger Premium Pils. I enjoyed this beer often when I was stationed over in Germany.
Bitburger pours with a golden, ultra clear body. Head build up is quick due to the ultra high concentration of CO2, a typical trait among Pilsner style lagers. The head dissipates rather quickly to leave behind a small lace that lasts all the way through.
It smells a bit toasty and biscuity at the same time. Tastes a bit like it smells, but with a slightly bitter finish; however, still all together clean.
This is a very smooth and refreshing beer. For kicks try mixing it 1/3rd cola, the Germans do it all the time. It oddly gives it a slight coppery taste.
This is much bolder than our American style Pilsner beers. Don't buy this thinking it's a German version of Miller Lite. Ich will noch ein mal!

4.46/5 rDev +28.9%

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.
