COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Victoria Bitter has been Australias 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.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2005 Hmm, awful sweet malty flavour followed by a bilious aftertaste and accompanying hangover the next day. Shocking.

Bottle, Wetherspoons in Glascow. Not what I expected. Urine yellow, fizzy, no head. Sweet with that gross taste that comes with cheap bad wine.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
Poured a tawny yellow with a bug head that fell down into fine lace. Nose was sweet, familiar somehow, and led into a quenching mouthfeel. A whisper of hops and a rewarding swallow that left little to be desired. No doubt a fine session beer for what it is. I didnt expect to be blown away.

Drank this while having red wine sauced kangaroo burger at the Australian chain bar Walkabout, Temple, London. Standard taste, somewhat sharp on the mouth, just okay.

DuffMan (10150) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 Pale golden, clear, medium head. I wouldnt go so far as calling this "foul", but it is pretty boring. Sweet malt is really all you get for flavour (the same as all corn-adjunct, over-processed pale lagers on the market). I wouldnt choose to drink it again if an alternative were available, but I wouldnt turn it down if the beerfridge was empty on a Friday night. This is my standard review for all "two-star-or-less" piss. RE-RATE: Ive had this TONS since I originally posted my rating, and I have to say that it is actually pretty bad. It is always stinky and corny and unclean tasting. Not a nice macro.

omhper (24799) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2005
Draught at Irish Murphy, Ballarat. Yellowish golden, brief head. Dusty orangey hop aroma. Some coarse vegetably maltiness, low bitterness. I still do prefer the Australian version of cheap crappy lagers to most other cheap crappy lagers.

Jarmby (25) - Lilydale, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2005
The one redeeming quality of Vb is it looks ok in the glass.But who pours it into a glass? It smells of stale tank water and has that taste but with a malty sweetness. Its thirst quenching on a hot day ,but you have to learn to drink it because just about everyone else wants to buy it and drink it. The TV adverts are pehaps its greatest achievment

TBone (17316) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2005
Bottled (BB 11/2005)
Paleish yellow, small white head, some lace. Malty, rubbery-skunked aroma. Watery. Malty base with biting rubbery flavor. Bitter aftertaste. A bit strange aroma and flavors in this.
