Bitburger Premium Pilsner

What the brewers say

“Its refined herbal notes are delicately poised, followed by a nutty and honeyed aftertaste. The overall impression of this sparkling beer is one of deep harmony, with the unmistakeable bitterness of the hops balanced and contained by an agreeable, mellow sweetness in the body.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very delicate at first, skunky, with some muscular German hops aroma that’s mostly floral. Behind that lies some cracker and mild bread sweetness. Earthy, sulfur tones, and spicy and earthy notes.”

Flavor: “Skunkiness up front, followed by malty biscuit, honey, and cracker. Floral hops bring on some spice and bitterness, along with some lime. Good body and high carbonation create a nice bite at the end.”

Overall: “Refreshing and welcome if you like the simple nature of this beer. Bright, light, and a little rough around the edges, but well-balanced with the hops and malt flavors.”
