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.

maekchu (1982) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 30, 2014
Bottle from local Yamaya store. Mild cardboard nose, sweet cheap malt, sweat. Medium golden straw color. Muddled sweetness: sugar, molasses, grain. Very slight hopping in final. Thin body. Rather flavorless and also a bit rasty on the tongue.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 30, 2014
This is kind of a classic. I’m very fond of Australia, and the best cold beer is Vic’s as they say. Well, it’s a tad more tasty than all the other lagers sold in Australia, with an extra bite to it which makes it so effective in the super hot Aussie Sun.

MarkoNm (454) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 24, 2014
Pours an orangey golden color, clear, topped with a decent white head and a solid retention. The aroma is mostly malty along with some biscuity notes. The taste is pleasantly bitter throughout, with a slightly unpleasant metal feel in the aftertase. Otherwise nicely drinkable.

This stuff is dreadful, I would honestly rather not drink than touch this stuff. Plenty of people like it and I can’t understand why, I’ve tried many times but now have given up. Do yourself a favour and don’t bother.

sm89walt (1751) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 16, 2014
Keg - Newport Arms, Newport, Sydney. Poured a clear, pale straw yellow. Aroma of grain, corn and subtle lemon. Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation with a short, abrupt grainy bitter finish. Crisp and firm mouthfeel but just a bit dull. Not much to see here.

MRMedellin (209) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - APR 15, 2014

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2014
A dark yellow, clear beer with a white layer of foam. The aroma’s of grain came around as soon as the bottle was open. It tastes really bitter, and leaves no room for any other tastes. It remains for quite a while in the aftertaste. Een donkergeel, helder bier met een witte kraag. Het aroma van graan en gerst komen al vrij bij het openen van de fles. De smaak is ook vol bitter en laat weinig over voor andere smaken. Dit blijft nog vrij lang hangen in de nasmaak.

Iphonephan (3066) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 4, 2014
From a can on a dive boat far out in the Coral Sea. Not much to recommend with this one. Not bad after a day’s diving.

Beerhunter111 (6917) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 1, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, muffig, getreidig. Geschmack wässrig malzig, getreidig.

Hopptrician (4) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2014 does not count
golden, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, went into this rating with extremely low expectation, with previous memories of this beer being bad! And whereas it was far from good, it was not bad, basically just an easy drinking lolly water, was surprising to me. No way i would start drinking it though!
