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.

Yuck! Skunky and citrus-y aroma. Yellow and no head, not much to say about this beer, but the flavor left me look like a chimpanzee with showing its teeth!

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2002
Pale gold clear under a small short lasting head that still manages to generate some lace. Bitter sappy woody hops aroma. Medium rawish metallic bitter palate with a touch of corn syrup sweetness. Start has some character and is decently carbonated but a weak middle, and hint of paint thinner finish and after taste are disappointing.

Decent lager, but not much of a bitter. Drinkable nontheless.

Best of beers I tired during my trip to Australia. I must say it’s better than our cheap beers over here. Wish it was sold in the U.S.

madsberg (10140) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2002
UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: Lager, with not much character. Has some bitterness, but it is way too waterish and uninteresting.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2003 Surely intended to quench one"s thirst. Looks like the average lager with a white and quickly dissipating head. The initial flavour did NOT please me, but the finish is better: some hop bitterness with an almost fruity character. Still we need some serious global warming before I feel like buying this again here in Denmark!

I agree with Oakes on this one. A middle of the road Aussie lager.
