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.

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.

Certainly not a bitter, a boring Aussie lager, one small step above Fosters in that it is actually drinkable if served VERY cold.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2004
(375 ml bottle.) Sweetish orange-like aroma. Flavour is mostly bitterness - more than in Foster's and Castlemaine, but not really pleasant. Will not be a regular beer of mine this one.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2004
A good way to cleanse the palate between drinking quality ales. This just bites, and is completely undrinkable, and that is me being generous.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Dough and ass aromas. Urine colored. Lightly sweet throughout with a very grain aftertaste. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: why do dogs like there asses?

Golden color with a white head. The taste is earthy watery with notes of fungus and uglyness. Boring as h...

If you don't like this then your probably a toff anyway. What more can be said about the institution that is VB? As Aussie as a Lamington and as about as tasty. Good free beer. Spanner.
