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.

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

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.

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.

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

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2006 Best served at 0C from a stubby preferably whilst in the shower. Sure, it’s no good when it warms up but that’s not what it’s about. I’ll gladly drink several, which is a lot more than I can say for many of the local micros in these parts. If you rate this 0.5 or so you’re kidding yourself. And you’ve gotta respect the advertising, at least.

This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.
