COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Victoria Bitter has been Australia’s favorite full strength beer brand for many years. VB, as it is widely known, was launched in the 1890s and since then has developed a reputation as a great beer with a tradition of rewarding Australians who work and play hard.

The alcohol percentage went down from 4.8% to 4.6% in 2009.

MrBlueSky93 (516) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours amber-brown, viscous with white coloured single finger head. Aroma of bread, biscuit, slight metallic. Taste is bready, biscuity, with a touch of metallic at the end. Ok..

LazyPyro (335) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
375ml bottle. Pale pissy golden yellow colour with almost no head. Sweet malt aroma, light grain. Flavour is mostly just the sweet malt as well, some faint grain and metallic notes too... but it’s not that bad actually. No bitterness to speak of though. Soft carbonation and watery texture. Yeah it’s nothing special but it’s drinkable, better than expected knowing all the bad ratings.

Luvystypotables (1451) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2016
A sweet malt aroma, with a hint of bread, pours a clear gold color with heavy carbonation and a foamy white head. A sweet taste with a hint of malt. Refreshing and easy to drink with a light body and a slightly sweet malt finish.

mile (3714) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 10, 2016
Can. Light golden, small and mostly diminishing head. Light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish aroma, light - some metal. Body is light, malty - lightly grainy and lightly sweetish flavor, light metal.Finish is short, malty lightly grainy and lightly sweetish, light - some metal and faint hoppyness. Watery and sweetish lager with notes of sharp metal. Australians who work and play hard deserve better beer than this.

HammerTroll (1122) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 27, 2016

Kurtos (156) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2016
Can. Pours a pale bronze. Aroma. Slight aroma of lemon and bubblegum. Taste. Slight bitterness, with flavours of lemon and bubblegum. Overall. Not a bad beer, very light on the palate and not bad for a few.

mrjez (320) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2016
Had countless times years back, this time from a 250ml bottle. Smells of grain, musty and metallic notes. Taste is quite watery with a harsh bitterness. As it warms I detect malt, but the fizz makes it hard to enjoy. It was pretty hard to get through even a small bottle, once my thirst was quenched I had no desire to taste any more.
