0.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle at a party, no opportunity to pour (gave a ’2’ out of kindness, just in case). Aroma of watery bitter hopps. Tasted of typical bad pale lager wet cardboard and corn, but with the added displeasure of horrible bitterness. Why (or even how) would people drink cartons of this? Mercifully, it also comes in a very small bottle to reduce the pain of finishing to avoid insult to the host.

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. :^)

Pours golden with medium white head. Aromas of grass, hay, some honey. Sour and bitter taste. Light body, average carbonation. Short bitter finish.

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.

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.

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.

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

0,375 bottle from beerbottle.eu. Has some strange, unusual taste. I guess I wont drink this again.

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