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.

Bottle shared in W2 - picked up at Kris Wines. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white head. The nose holds cereal and pizza dough. Medium sweet flavor with sugary pale bread, cereal, light honey, biscuits, faint apple and metal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, with light alcohol, dry cereal, white bread, hay. So so.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Stubby bottle care of Leighton. It pours clear pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma is simple, grainy, white bread, white sugar, apple and melon. The taste is crisp, grassy bitterness, grainy, peppery spice, straw and white bread with a dry finish. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Not all that fucken bad.

LazyPyro (594) - Cheltenham, 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.

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.
