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.

Faint aroma. Fruity flavor of tea and malt. No surprise, there are also bitter notes. Bitter aftertaste also.

This was not a fantastic beer, but I was in Australia for a few weeks and I not only had VB multiple times, but I also had the opportunity to tour the brewery. I wish that I could get this beer in the states, but I know that even if I could, it wouldn’t taste the same. This is a good beer. If you go to Australia, have a VB, you won’t regret it. There are many great beers throughout Australia, but VB is definitely worth a try.

I lived in Australia for close to a year and I only tried this beer a few times and I hated it every time. However I saw this beer when I was in Europe and I was feeling nostalgic and I thought maybe I should give it one last try. Bad move. Pours pale yellow with thin white head Smells- Kind of skunky Tastes-Not much flavor and what is there isn’t very good. Very slight sweetness with a bitter aftertaste. MF- SLight carbonation Overall- Not worth it.

Not a good beer at all, maybe i’m not a fan of bitters but this one is a poor tasting failure

Not a bad beer but it doesn’t wow you either. Nice taste of hops and as the name suggests a bitter finish.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Nice surprise from start to end. Pouring in golden with a creamy head. Crispy look and mouthfeel. Fresh fruits in the back with a bit of grape dominating,. Easy going, fluffy finish. Quaffy and easy to drink. Perfect beer for a football evening.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2013
Expected a thin and average Pale Lager but got surprisingly a very decent beer. Pours out typical in a clear golden colour with steady creamy head and medium body. Nose of hops and dried fruits. Taste of raisins, dried cranberries, prunes, light hops and caramel. Very easy and nice to drink, delicious smooth and tasty.

Average beer but out of a long neck in front of state of origin with a dogs eye it does the trick. -
