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.

LazyPyro (427) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
375ml bottle. Pale pissy golden yellow colour with almost no head. Sweet malt aroma, light grain. Flavour is mostly just the sweet malt as well, some faint grain and metallic notes too... but it’s not that bad actually. No bitterness to speak of though. Soft carbonation and watery texture. Yeah it’s nothing special but it’s drinkable, better than expected knowing all the bad ratings.
