FROTHINGSLOSH (5965) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a large white head. The aroma was sour, tangy, dry and a touch spicy. The flavor was tangy, dry and only lightly malty with a cardboard undertone. The finish was dry cardboard. Unimpressive.

One of the most popular beer in Australia... Pours clear golden with small white head. Smells like most of industrial lager. Atromas of sweet malts and some fruity hops. Average carbonation, light body. Abrupt finish. Boring.

375ml Dose. Goldgelbes Bier, wenig Schaum. Herber Duft. Etwas Hopfen. Langweiliger Geschmack.

Found Some notes and ratings from my 2009 trip to Australia. This was Nothing special. Inferior to the "old".

LazyPyro (221) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2015
375ml bottle. Golden orange colour, thin white head which fades away very quickly. Light aroma of grain, hops. Taste is a little bland, some malts and hops and a little metallic bitterness. I mean it’s not bad but there’s not much good to write about either. Disappointing.

Along the same veins as VB. Really rubbish mass produced beer here in Australia. Some old timers have a sentimental attachment to it because they have been getting drunk on it for the last 40 years. Doesn’t seem have the same level of loyal following as VB but some people keep drinking because that is what they have always been drinking. You can drink it if you have to but personally I wouldn’t recommend it. It is light on the palate with only an unpleasant yeasty mildly bitter taste.

DavidAust (145) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 29, 2015
Typical of mainstream Australian mass produced beer. Mild and inoffensive if served super cold to keep away the nasty flavours. Will quench your thirst after mowing the lawn, or cheap enough (comparing to other Australian home produced beer only) to mix with lemonade to make a shandy / radler. But be gentle with the lemonade as there isn’t much flavour in the beer - so you will drown it out if you put in more than a quarter of the volume. If you are a beer connoisseur or simply used to stronger brews - avoid this one. Only drink at about 1-2 degrees Celsius and drink quickly.

Dark yellow colour, strong and bitter flavours throughout. Very ’hoppy’ with subtle yet rich barley flavours. 6/10 bitterness with a slight sweet aftertaste. Strong honest beer.
