Definitely the staple diet of many a true blue drinker in Australia. Make sure you get real McCoy version as the English brewed version is caled Victria Beer (not to confuse the word bitter). Must be served extra cold.

A beer for tough Australian guys. OK, leave them drinking it, so why to export it?

Golden colour, not much head. Corn aroma. Watery and unclean. No hops. Could be mistaken for a third-world-beer.

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.

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.

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.

Bottled. Amber, poor head and low condition. Aromas of nut and solvent, slight peardrop flavours and a thin dry finish.
