Today I’m posting a guest review from James Lau: Graphic & Web designer, and amateur photographer. I met James at an Eco Tweet-up, and have seen him at subsequent Tweet-ups. At the most recent tweet-up I found out that James is a huge beer fan. I recommended that he do a guest review for me. James had the same reaction as most people do, which is something along the lines of: “I’ve never reviewed a beer before”, or “I don’t know all the terminology”. To which I always reply…it’s about enjoying the beer, not about getting everything right in describing it or using a bunch of fancy words! I love this review he provided…simple and down to earth!
Before I opened a Bitburger beer, I need to review this beer!
Says on the bottle…
– Germany’s No.1 Draught Beer
– Made using crystal clear water from volcanic springs. Brewed since
1817 according to the German Purity Law of 1516.
– 4.8 alc./vol.
I would describe this beer at a lighter beer then the Sam Adam’s Noble
Pils beer. Less hop flavor, but has a nice crisp…taste. Sorry for my
lack of beer language lingo here. LOL Definitely a much lighter beer
then light I would say. Not much of a “bite” from the “BIT.” LOL
I can easily gun this down in less than a minute…sorry Germany…I
like German beer, but this wasn’t something that stood out as an
astonishingly new German beer for me. You can cruise through 4-5 of this
beer in less then 20 minutes…if i wanted too.
Comes in a 6 pack, at around $9.59 with tax.
