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.

Bland. Cheap highly drinkable beer. Lacks unique character and flavours. One of last choice options.

Oz has much better brews to offer than this one. I think I know where the term 'piss' for beer came from. It does the job on a hot WA afternoon in the summer though.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2006 Best served at 0C from a stubby preferably whilst in the shower. Sure, its no good when it warms up but thats not what its about. Ill gladly drink several, which is a lot more than I can say for many of the local micros in these parts. If you rate this 0.5 or so youre kidding yourself. And youve gotta respect the advertising, at least.

horrible beer, drink as cold as possible if you must drink it at all, terrible hop and malt flavours make for a terrible beer, cheap rubbish

lobsha (1) - USA - OCT 25, 2003 does not count
Quite a bland beer. Usually the first beer a young boy or girl will drink on the mainstream, however the taste and aftertaste is very poor and can result in one being sick. Quite a bitter taste, and is only good for a cheap piss up.

It surprises me a little to see the low ratings on this one. I find it quite ok. Golden with a nice and rather creamy head. Aroma is hoppy and with some citrus. Has a maild and fruity flavor. Ends with a sweet finish that brings some almond late.

A great comercial mainstream beer but a poor flavoured beer. Very bland, sweet and uninspiring.

Completely lacking in everything and anything. Bland, no hop presence and a definite chemical aftertaste. Not really woth being rated...

DanielBrown (4408) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2003
Bottle. Initial bubblegum hint, then a malty, almost vodk-y flvaour, before a bland finish. Quite crisp and nice lacing.

I prefer this over crowns or carlton draught but its still not good. CUB beers are just full stop - not good, more time spent on chemicals and marketing than producing good lagers. VB is popular, but does that make it good - I dont think so. cheers
