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.

This was not a fantastic beer, but I was in Australia for a few weeks and I not only had VB multiple times, but I also had the opportunity to tour the brewery. I wish that I could get this beer in the states, but I know that even if I could, it wouldn’t taste the same. This is a good beer. If you go to Australia, have a VB, you won’t regret it. There are many great beers throughout Australia, but VB is definitely worth a try.

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

jdjuice (373) - 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.

TedE (236) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2015
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.

Bottle 0,375 l, Walkabout, Bournemouth, England, UK. Ciemnozłote piwo praktycznie pozbawione piany ze stęchłym zapachem. W smaku nieprzyjemnie ziołowe z goryczkowym finiszem.

Absolute filth, old school Aussie crap, don’t drink it if someone had a shotgun to your stupid noggin. Bogan horror piss at its worst, just another mainstream CUB pale lager piece of piss. Avoid at all costs.

eduardovl (992) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
375ml bottle served in a Weizen glass. A: Pours a regular and clear yellow color forming a medium and fluffy and very bubbled white head. Medium retention and many lacings left in the glass S: Sweet grains. Adjunct malts, mainly. Notes of corn, flowery hops and Lager yeasts T: Sweet malts upfront followed bit a skunky and bit citrus hop bitterness. In overall, a quite dry taste. Adjunct malts are quite annoying. Strong notes of corn and the hops bitterness is medium and quite dry too. Bready Lager style yeasts M: Light body. Strong carbonation. Adjunct grains and a medium dry hoppy bitterness O: Low drinkability. I was curious about this beer for long years. Quite disappointing. Not recommended at all [ BA Review @ 1/13/2013 ]
