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.

375ml bottle at Brisbane Airport. Nose is vegetables and metal. Taste is cold water, slight hops. Horrible aftertaste-all metallic spritz. Under no circumstance allow this beer to get warm.

Bottle 0,375 l, Walkabout, Bournemouth, England, UK. Ciemnozłote piwo praktycznie pozbawione piany ze stęchłym zapachem. W smaku nieprzyjemnie ziołowe z goryczkowym finiszem.

Absolute filth, old school Aussie crap, don’t drink it if someone had a shotgun to your stupid noggin. Bogan horror piss at its worst, just another mainstream CUB pale lager piece of piss. Avoid at all costs.

eduardovl (1103) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
375ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a regular and clear yellow color forming a medium and fluffy and very bubbled white head. Medium retention and many lacings left in the glass S: Sweet grains. Adjunct malts, mainly. Notes of corn, flowery hops and Lager yeasts T: Sweet malts upfront followed bit a skunky and bit citrus hop bitterness. In overall, a quite dry taste. Adjunct malts are quite annoying. Strong notes of corn and the hops bitterness is medium and quite dry too. Bready Lager style yeasts M: Light body. Strong carbonation. Adjunct grains and a medium dry hoppy bitterness O: Low drinkability. I was curious about this beer for long years. Quite disappointing. Not recommended at all [ BA Review @ 1/13/2013 ]

VBEv (3) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 14, 2014 does not count
VB on tap has got to be one of Australia’s best beers. Definitely not for those that don’t enjoy a strong bitter. An acquired taste that gets better with every beer. It’s truly a beer that can be enjoyed all year round. The best cold beer is Vic.

czlowiekwiadro (424) - POLAND - JUL 21, 2014
zapach potu i starych nadgniłych jabłek (jak pod drzewem na jesieni). kolor ciemnego złota, przejrzyste, piana słaba, średnio trwała. w smaku pełne, słodkie, też daje starym jabłkiem. trochę witaminy c. goryczka wyczuwalna ale niska i nie za dobra. nasycenie średnie do wysokiego.

Malty aroma. Clear golden colour with poor head retention. Malty flavor, very harsh with a poor finish. Light to medium body with high carbonation.
