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.

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.

This is pretty bad stuff but at least it has some flavour, and it doesn’t taste bad enough to make you feel like you’re struggling just to finish your glass.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2003 I confess to a personal prejudice on this one. It was the first beer I ever drank, being introduced to it by my brother. It is still one of the best beers when you have - as the ad says - "a hard-earned thirst". Goes down pleasantly, easily and quickly. One of the few lagers that doesn't turn on you no matter how much of it you drink.

This is a perfect beer: perfects "2s" for my rating. Smells a little fart-like. Light gold color and a surprisingly reasonable taste given the nose on this thing. Thin body. I paid WAY too much for this: 1.85 Euro (about $1.85 at the time of purchase) for a .33 liter can.

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!

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.
