I have poured out old Bitburger. I don't know what A$$ tastes like, but is sounds like a good description.
In Germany, fresh vom Fass, it's a pretty decent German Pils. Light, crisp and as the Germans say, Herb which means it has a good hop nose & flavor.
They've been brewing since 1817 and I'll take a cold fresh one anytime.
