1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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!

VB seems to differ with mode of consumption. Today’s sitting of VB was an above average experience of what we are forced to endure at sporting events in Australia.
This beer had a clear, golden, sparkling appearance. Medium bitterness (funnily enough), light sweetness, average carbonation. If it always tasted this above average bad, I would be happier at the football!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can, 0.375l. Clear golden color with average frothy white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, grass and vegetables. Clean lager taste with grainy maltiness and vegetable following, while finish is light bitter. Light body, thin texture and lively carbonation in palate. Average, typical, without many pluses....

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tap at royal pines golf club, australia. Clear deep golden color, white head. Aroma is basic malty and metal. Taste also malts and metal. Maybe more metallic taste this time than original mass lagers. Don’t know any reason to drink this in future.

Pours a clear golden yellow from the hand grenade bottle with a small head. The smell is sweet malt, grain, corn. The taste follows the noise ending slightly bitter. Light body, mild carbonation. A unexciting brew.

This beer has the highest market share in Australia its pretty awful actually. Flat, tasteless and bitter, a larger in actual fact. Its well marketed and hence succeed commercially but its one to avoid if you are an overseas visitor.

Victoria Bitter 4.9% 375ml can in NZ
Aroma: light mix of bready malts and spicy hops
Flavor: Mild; good balance although it is sweet up front and a bit bitter by the finish. The hops dominate eventually in the mildly bitter and hoppy aftertaste.
Feel: medium-light body; crisp and smooth; good, medium+ carbonation.
O: recommended as a decent but cheap and widely available (in NZ) beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,375 l bottle. Pours dark golden in the glass, low carbonation, small fine head. Sweet malt on the nose. Starts more like cheap whitewine with cardboard. Followed by a strange citrus sweetness, low dry bitterness, bread and potatoes. More than boring.
