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

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 Bottled.
If I'd been sitting in the sun in Australia, I'd probably had loverd this one.
Rather bitter and sourish and a lot of carbonation.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2003 A tragedy that this beer is Australias favourite. Only bearable when ice cold.

Bottle: Drunk at room temp. Pours a yellowish color with thin fizzy head. Easy to drink with not much going on. Light hops and malts. Good on hot days of course.

So cheap and easy to drink. The flavours are pretty plain but its clear appearance makes it great to drink on hot days.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Toilet water and citrus nose with hints of brandy. Dull amber colour with a rapidly vanishing head. Sweet treacle and apple taste, slightly skunked with a short, thin bitterish finish. Pretty poor really, better than that famous piss Fosters though.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2006 This stuff is about as bad it gets. How this can be called a beer is an embarrassment. It is nothing more than a bottle full of chemicals that happens to be 4.9% alcohol. Vile, unadulerated filth and I’m a Victorian.
RE-RATE: On a trip to the UK recently, I was bought a bottle of VB by one of my so-called friends and drank it as not to hurt his feelings. I was quite staggered at how much WORSE this is when it’s brewed in the UK. This was sickly sweet and metallic all rolled into one. I aint no fan of VB, but the Aussie version is completely unlike the UK version. Both are bad, but if forced to choose I’d take the Oz one every time. I couldn’t even finish the UK bottle.
