1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lager convencional de aspecto, aroma malteado. Bastante carbónica, en exceso, por lo demás totalmente normal, del monton. Bebible, refrescante, algo dulce y sin nada que aportar.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Flaska @ Backstage, Varberg. Guldfärgad vätska med ett medelstort vitt skum. I såväl smak som doft är malten kraftigt dominerande, och till det en näven honung och gräs. Väldigt sött, liten beska.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours a light gold with a 2 finger head of foam and leaves some lacing. A pretty good looking brew.
The smell is of corn, grain, and a nondescript bitterness.
The taste isn’t bad up front; there’s a decent balance between the corn and grainy sweetness and a light bitterness. On the back end it does get a bit too corny and sweet but overall, it’s not that bad. Some compliment for a beer, eh?
Usual carbonation and body for the style, it’s easy drinking. It might have been even better before the best by of Aug 2011. :^)

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
VB (commonly called just ’green’) was once Australia’s most widely popular local brew. Cheaper than most alternatives and heavily marketed, in much the same way Fosters succeed overseas. As for the beer itself, there’s nothing to recommend it at all. Its aroma is reminiscent of a public urinal and the head and the finish are weak and watery.

Tinnie into glass. Lots of white head above dark urine yellow beer. Minimal aroma. Taste mild w some slight bready malt. Slight sweetness in the aftertaste. Not sure I could drink more than 1 or 2 before needing to switch to something better.

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

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light, malty, and carbonated. Really not special at all. At least the bottle is cool, I guess.
