The aroma is bitter. It smells like an ordinary lager. Has a golden color, with minimal head. Tastes a little fruity and watery, with minimal bitterness.

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.

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

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.

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.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 bad beer but it doesn’t wow you either. Nice taste of hops and as the name suggests a bitter finish.
