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.

My friend came back from a semester abroad in australia, she brought some of this w/ her. Said this is a cheap beer there. It went down real nice and smooth, i could probably drink a bunch real fast.

Cut my teeth on this beer and growing up it was one that filled the gap nicely. I have grown up now though and moved on to much better brews. Still have a soft spot for it though.

A standard lager. Light and not very bitter flavour.

Nothing special. Quite watery and thin, eventhough I drank it after the consumption of Chimay Grand Reserve. Wonder why?

A golden beer with an OK yet fast disappearing head. The aroma is slightly hoppy. The taste is refreshing, a little more bitter than the average lager and with hints of honey which makes it just a bit better than the average lager. It’s not nearly as good now, as it was, 6 years ago, when I first tasted it in Sydney - maybe the setting and all the beers drunk since has an influence here?

Bad skunk nose, no palate, no real flavor, no complexity, a waste of time and money.

Now I know it is true all around the world that it is not always quality that sells but money and advertising can do the trick. The USA has its Budweiser and apparently Australia has its Victoria Bitter.

Watery, outside of having alcohol in it I’m not sure of anything positive to say about it outside of that fact that it didn’t make me vomit.
