A bitter that’s mass produced and tastes like it. Golden colour with an average head that if you keep tapping your glass will stay until it goes flat so you better drink it quick.
Hardly any smell to talk about although does have a slight hop fragrance.
Still its better then a few beers in Australia just.
Victoria Bitter (VB) is regarded as Australia's favourite beer! Yeh right! Frankly VB is a very average beverage! The taste is sour and the colour is equally off putting! Frankly I would prefer to have a coffee than s VB!!!

Pours clear golden with a white head. Malty aroma with some grass. Taste is mild and malty with some moderate bitterness at finish. A simple but decent macro lager. (375ml can) MarcoBasile (325) - DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
This one brings back memories.
Pours crystal clear golden colored body with a white creamy head.
Aroma of pale malts and grain. Subtle citrusy hops.
Taste is malts and some sweet corn with subtle bitterness.
Watery, well carbonated, plain. AlfredoGarcia (287) - Santiago, CHILE - JUN 14, 2017
330 ml bottle. Really clear low carbonation. Yeasty smell, boring. Way better than the regular pale lager, but kind of bad ending, little metalic. For the price alcohol costs in Australia is really not fucking worth it. jmgreenuk (9326) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle at a Melbourne Indian Restaurant. Poured a clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is grainy malt, light woody hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light grainy metallic cardboard woody hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Every bit as bad as I expected. The only positives that I can take from this are that I drank it in Melbourne and someone else paid :-)

Bottle of piss given to me by our wingmanwillis, big massive thanks for this one Dave. Drunk from the bottle like a bloke. Aroma of sweetcorn and American shitty adjuncts with an Aussie criminal twist. Taste is very bogan like, texture of flannelette. Love Chris Franklin. Shn crew Forever.
There’s your fucking storyboard. macca147 (156) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2017
On tap. Schooner. Pours a pale gold with a good white head. Aroma: Malt dominates with very mild citrus, honey aroma. Taste: Malts dominate the flavour balance. Mild sweetness from the malt. Lingering bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Much better on tap than bottled in my experience. Not anything special, a typical Australian commercial bitter, but it has a lot more flavour than the other commercial mass-produced beers.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2017 Stray 375ml can from The Trusts West Liquor.
Golden with good head.
Aroma is pretty non-descript - grain/malt with a touch of burnt rubber.
Very slight "bitterness" is followed by a thin grainy body, a metallic note and quite a sweet finish.
Perfectly adequate lager for knocking back while watching the Footy I guess.

Idiosynkrasie (7436) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2017
375ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy, malty aroma, hints of corn, grey bread. Taste is minimally sweet grainy, hints of corn, popcorn, flat, bitter hoppy overtones. Monotonous, but not as watery as was expectable, lively carbonated and with fairly lasting finish.
