Day 92 Drink: Bitburger Pils

Bitburger traces its roots back to 1817 in the city of Bitburg. The beer is imported to the U.S., but is not as well know as some of its German competitors, such as Beck's, Spaten, Lowenbrau and Paulaner. But Bitburger is one of the top selling draught beer in Germany and you will find it available in many places as you travel the country.

Bitburger Pils is a light golden color lager with a whispy white head. It has a light floral hop aroma. The hops offer a nice crisp start to the beer. The body of the beer is light and refreshing. A nice warm weather brew.

My very first keg as Bitburger Pils. It is a very nice German beer. Not my favorite, but most people seem to enjoy it.
