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.

Its not a fancy pants beer - with strong textures and flavours. Its a beer for drinkers, clean crisp taste, bitter. Great for whittling away a thirst.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2004 Horses for courses. This is by any estimate a chemical based bad beer. However, sometimes its so bad its good... on a warm day at a BBQ when drunk freezing cold. Are worse at this price on the Aust mkt. Brings back memories of getting drunk at Uni.

Not pleasant, from the first smell after twisting the top off to the foul after taste. I agree with alphaone, how doies this beer sell so well in Australia. Maybe its got something to do with the Criminal heritage. A drink for bogans and people with no taste buds only.

I cant say that I expected an exeptionel beer experience with this bitter, but say say, this was not bad at all. The bitterness is the best thing about this beer, maybee some good malt could give some sweetness.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2004
Head that collapses into a film on top of the pale yellow body. Nondescript aroma. Thin palate. Somewhat sweet flavour hint of bitter, nasty ass chemical aftertaste.

The general of ausralian beers, strong bitter flavour. Is harsh and rough around the edges but highly respected and consumed by its followers, mainly due to loyalty and routine.
