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 don't think i have ever bought a VB unless it was in a 1 horse town that sell nothing else. I have no idea why this has become such an icon its crap, just crap. When extremely cold can be tollerated, yes aftertaste is horrid a slice of pizza is need or something.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2003
Pours urine-yellow with almost non existant head. Heavily carbonated. Smells like off hops and chemicals. Tastes like water with a hint of sweetness. Bad astringent hop bitterness aftertaste. Poor.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - FEB 2, 2003
Typical golden color just a bit darker than other Aussie Lagers. Looks flat in the glass, little bubble action no head. Smells like a sawmill, wood and pine scents, some malty tones. Very mild hop bittering, not what I expected.Not much flavor to comment on. This beer is like a pair of plain white socks, yes they're socks that's all. This is Lager, that's all. Better than Hahn's or Carlton's, but that ain't saying much.

Was slightly dissapointed by this. Where's the bitterness? Saving grace is its palate, which is much more evident than most lagers.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2003
Bottled. Amber, poor head and low condition. Aromas of nut and solvent, slight peardrop flavours and a thin dry finish.

Crit (3394) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
Why it is named bitter I will never know. Just a slightly fuller bodied better than average mainstream lager.

Bokeroo (16) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2003
Typical mass produced beer. Too chemical and hangover inducing. One for the plebs.
