Reviewed 12/4/2005 (12oz bottle from 24 variety pack):
Pours a fizzy pale yellow colored body. Has a malty aroma. A dry dusty taste, with a bitter aftertaste. Watery, and grainy. Similar to the domestic fizzy yellow in appearance, aroma, taste. Not good.

Bitburger pours a straw golden color with a lot of bubbles and a small head. There is a an aroma like dirty dishwater. The taste is watery, soapish, and also tastes like dirty dish water. Very light, which helps it, but just undrinkable. Overall looks good, but tastes bad.

looks like an average german pilsener. smells like an average german pilsener. The bad news is that it doesn't taste like one.
Mouthfeel is just terrible, and combined with the taste, made me want to spit it out. And couldn't even finish a whole glass (and it was a small glass).
The marketing hype said a lot about this beer (I had it at a local beer festival), but it didn't quite live up to the expectations. It was said that this beer is really popular in Germany. I found it hard to believe.
Maybe it should've been at a lower temperature or something, but this beer just didn't do it for me.

Sludge is the first word that comes to mind...swill is a close second. Almost no head, no lacing, a horrible stale taste that lingered in my mouth followed my trauma of drinking this stuff. Hard to believe this is made in Germany. I will note...Born on date on bottle says it was made 7 months ago. Not sure if this made it worse, but it sure didn't get better with age.

I bought this beer cause I didn't know it but it seemed to have very good marketing (it says "Best German Beer" on the package) so I reckoned I'd give it a try.
When I did drink it though I was bitterly disappointed.
It's your typical grey, monotonous whydidIpayforthis lager beer.
No better than Heinekein. When you pour it it looks promising, with not-so-persistent head and hardly any smell.
But when you do drink it you'll be left wondering whether they were drunk or just in bad (wicked) faith when they called it a good beer, not to mention the "best" beer in Germany.

Smell: malt (white bread, hay) slightly earthy hops, some citrus. Taste: watery sweet malt and almost no bitterness from the hops.
The taste is just too thin, and without the hops, the malt is too sweet.
I like german pilsner - this was, however, a disappointment. It is in no way near Jever, for example. It needs more hops.

Had this beer on tap at the Toronado in September of 2004. Well, I was expecting a clone of Radenberger, but this fell far shot of it. I may need to re-review this one because I had it immediately after a flemish sour beer. Maybe my taste buds were shot at this point. Anyway, it was a very pale yellow color, left little or no head and next to no lace. Smelled very outdoorsy, like grass or maybe hay or something. Extremely light on the carbonation. It felt like I was drinking a cask conditioned beer, but it wasn't. Very flat and watery with very little aftertaste. Very disappointed in this one. Could have been a bad sample or my taste buds though. May try again sometime.
