Bottle- Pours a dark yellow color with a small head that fades to no real lacing. Aromais musty. Blend of yeast and hops with a bit of sweetness in the background. Has that old stale beer smell. Taste is not much better, sort of funky with yeast and malt sweetness. Coarse bitterness and a sticky finish. Light body, has a lot of rough edges and high carbonation. Not a decent drinker, but then you can’t expect too much from a poor step sister of Victoria Bitter.

Melbourne bitter. Welcome back to the 80’s. If you rate it as a beer its gets zeros across the board. Little taste, watery texture, flat as a tac and generally all round terrible. But you know what? Sometimes after a long day at work a terrible melbourne hits the spot. When you need that brainless beer its perfect. Theres no need to complicate simplicity like Melbourne. You know its beer (just) but when you’re brain dead and need a drink then why waste a good beer? Just smash it down and stop worrying about life. It holds a special place in my liver and probably will forever.

Bottle. Another ordinary lager. Very bland. Beer flavoured water with added alcohol. Only good for getting drunk.

Its bitter like the label says but thats about it, Reminded me of studend days when anything as long as it had alcohol would do.

750ml Bottle - No really aroma, very little taste - bit metallic and lost its head as soon as poured. Had that same candy sweet finish I get from VB.
