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.

Somewhat reminiscent of a Canadian macrobrew. Nothing complex but somewhat easy drinking if it's ice cold.

Completely lacking in everything and anything. Bland, no hop presence and a definite chemical aftertaste. Not really woth being rated...

Bland. Cheap highly drinkable beer. Lacks unique character and flavours. One of last choice options.

horrible beer, drink as cold as possible if you must drink it at all, terrible hop and malt flavours make for a terrible beer, cheap rubbish

rlgk (17301) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2003
It surprises me a little to see the low ratings on this one. I find it quite ok. Golden with a nice and rather creamy head. Aroma is hoppy and with some citrus. Has a maild and fruity flavor. Ends with a sweet finish that brings some almond late.

DanielBrown (4353) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2003
Bottle. Initial bubblegum hint, then a malty, almost vodk-y flvaour, before a bland finish. Quite crisp and nice lacing.

Oz has much better brews to offer than this one. I think I know where the term 'piss' for beer came from. It does the job on a hot WA afternoon in the summer though.

lobsha (1) - USA - OCT 25, 2003 does not count
Quite a bland beer. Usually the first beer a young boy or girl will drink on the mainstream, however the taste and aftertaste is very poor and can result in one being sick. Quite a bitter taste, and is only good for a cheap piss up.

A great comercial mainstream beer but a poor flavoured beer. Very bland, sweet and uninspiring.

I prefer this over crowns or carlton draught but its still not good. CUB beers are just full stop - not good, more time spent on chemicals and marketing than producing good lagers. VB is popular, but does that make it good - I dont think so. cheers
