I lived in Australia for close to a year and I only tried this beer a few times and I hated it every time. However I saw this beer when I was in Europe and I was feeling nostalgic and I thought maybe I should give it one last try. Bad move. Pours pale yellow with thin white head Smells- Kind of skunky Tastes-Not much flavor and what is there isn’t very good. Very slight sweetness with a bitter aftertaste. MF- SLight carbonation Overall- Not worth it.

MacBoost gave me this. Thanks MacBoost! I want to say it’s not fucken bad but, frankly, it is fucken bad. It is a wicked, metallic, chemical soup of a beer. It tastes like a 10% malt liquor without the burn. I still dig it tho. Fucken hell.

Can at home with lenincat. Clear gold appearance with a modest, off white head. Aroma smells like corn and some candy. Moderate carbonation. A little bit like sticky rice in the mouth. It’s not fucken bad.

On tap in Queenstown. Nothing "bitter" about this. Just a basic innoffensive pale lager.

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!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 (427) - 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 (9455) - 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.
