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.

I lived in Australia for close to a year and I only tried this beer a few times and I hated it every time. However I saw this beer when I was in Europe and I was feeling nostalgic and I thought maybe I should give it one last try. Bad move. Pours pale yellow with thin white head Smells- Kind of skunky Tastes-Not much flavor and what is there isn’t very good. Very slight sweetness with a bitter aftertaste. MF- SLight carbonation Overall- Not worth it.

Not ad bad as rated previously, better than most of the Aussie pale lagers, but leans to the watery side.

miggle (229) - Fürth, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2015
Red shiny golden color. Weak foam. Malty smell of dry hay and caramel. Taste starts sweet and becomes bitter in the end. Emerald a little bit flat.

adamnowek (455) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2015
Light, malty, and carbonated. Really not special at all. At least the bottle is cool, I guess.

Hält, was es verspricht. Angenehm bitter, leichte Süße, schöne Flasche mit Drehkronkorken. Das passt schon - Flaschenbier halt.

This beer has the aroma of an old man’s fart. Watery, tasteless and the only other thing it gives is a horrible headache.

txspartan (973) - Wilrijk, BELGIUM - FEB 7, 2015
Moudly grass and cut hay aroma. Malty, slightly bitter, some sweet notes like honey, a little spice.

jdjuice (394) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 26, 2015
Pours a respectable amber with minimal head. Smells cinnamony, apple cider, with slight sourness. Doesn’t taste good. Slightly sour, weak, watery, not very good.

375ml bottle at Brisbane Airport. Nose is vegetables and metal. Taste is cold water, slight hops. Horrible aftertaste-all metallic spritz. Under no circumstance allow this beer to get warm.
