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.

Well the bogans like it. Good ads. Pretty ordinary chemical slop with a bitter metallic aftertaste.

Hangover in a bottle. Horrible synthetic preservative chemical muck, try Emu Bitter, makes this crap look like cat piss

Octopussy (50) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2002
Nothing fantastic. Up there with West End Draught in my opinion. It is a bitter beer especially the aftertaste. Not many other prominent features so at least it has no horrible flavours present.

The most refreshing, tasty, mouth-watering, smoothest beer in the world. Any Australian who bad mouths this beer is either bull shitting, or kidding themselves. Serve Cold. The BEST.

Quite possibily the worst tasteing Lager in the Aus. Or is that Aussie brewed Fosters... hmm. Don’t drink it. All that shit they put in it kills brain cells faster than injecting acid into your head.
