A: Pours a light, translucent gold with plenty of head. Carbonation levels are quite active as evidenced by the large, foamy head and the plethora of bubbles climbing up to the top of the beer.
S: Sweet, light fruits, adjunct grains (corn), sugar and grass. An almost cider-like aroma.
T: Sweet malts, adjunct grains, pear, grape and a floral hop bouquet up front, followed by some butter and melon and finishing with bittering, lemon citrus hops and a twang of metal and mineral water that lingers on the tongue.
M: Light bodied with active, crisp carbonation. It feels nice on the tongue and goes down smooth with a bit of chewiness in the middle. Finishes dry with a bit of astringency.
O: Overall, not one of my favorite Pilseners because of the bitterness and astringency; not sure what all the hype is about. It's definitely drinkable and would pair nicely with anything off the grill, especially white meats, but I'd pass for something a bit more balanced.

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.
