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.

The only time I tried this beer I was at a base in Scotland. P-3C SQUADRON. To bad I can’t get in America

I would rather get my next drink directly from an angry Tasmanian Devil’s tit than drink this swill ever again. It tastes and smells like that sewer fermentation smell you get down in Melbourne docklands in the morning, from the Vegemite factory. Almost the worst beer in the world, but I’m from Canada where you have OV and Labatt’s Blue to compete for that title.
