Served on tap in a 25 ounce mug. Decent ring of head topping it all. Light straw .

Nose is a little wheaty, some light crisp hop too.

Taste is crisp, balanced hop and wheat

Bitburger is a familiar, comfortable type of pale lager. Refreshing, pairs well with food, gets the job done without pretension. For fans of euro and adjunct pale, helles/pilsner, and wiesn Oktoberfest.

Pours uber light yellow, happy clarity, heavy carbonation yet can't form or hold any head. Aroma was barley.

Taste is obliterated by the excessive carbonation. This is a mass produced pilsner, no off flavors, remarkably consistent, but yet offers little in the way of hop or malt flavors. Mostly just a fizzy experience all around. Pricey.
