StuffWine (183) - Perth, - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle at a party, no opportunity to pour (gave a ’2’ out of kindness, just in case). Aroma of watery bitter hopps. Tasted of typical bad pale lager wet cardboard and corn, but with the added displeasure of horrible bitterness. Why (or even how) would people drink cartons of this? Mercifully, it also comes in a very small bottle to reduce the pain of finishing to avoid insult to the host.

375 ml. can. 4.9% ABV per the label. Pours a thin, poorly retained, white head, with no lacing, over a clear dark yellow (SRM 4) body........nose is mild malts and hops with no character.....taste is slightly sweet to start, with mild malts, becoming dry with mild hop bitterness, balance slightly to the hops......mouth feel, light watery body, no alcohol, mild carbonation. This is a very simple and completely uninteresting beer. It is quite clean, and falls into the style of Pale Lager. This type of beer is only good for re-hydrating on a hot desert day. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

A big classic. Crisp lager, very easy to drink. Golden color, thin head, malty , a little bit sweet and light bitterness. Touch of citrusy tones. Above average lager.

This is a true Iconic Australian beer, and is one of the best you can find in australia. After being brought up around beer in the family i have had my fair share and I feel like this beer is the one that all Australians seem to go to for a beer. Its taste is superb, a little watery depending on can or bottle little to no bad after taste and after the first beer you can really get into a case of 30 in about 5 minutes. The smell is superb and I would bath in this beer to have its scent for life. This is like the air freshener of all Australian households and can be found in every fridge. This is in my opinion some of the best alcohol i have ever drank in my life.

Victoria Bitter is a most underrated amber fluid that lights up the palate like the light in an impressionist artwork. It has an flowery taste that tickles the throat and projects a strong aroma when one exhales on public transport. Best served very cold with fried takeaway chicken for a memorable evening.

1.8
explosivedog (1678) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 8, 2017
375ml can. Biscuit, little apple, little flora, touch of vegetation, little acidity near the end. Just a pale lager with a little more malt character than normal, and none the better for it.

2.1
Piepenhenrich (1246) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
From the bottle. Have it ice cold, so as to cover up for the lack in taste. Easy to drink, yet no match with other brews around.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2017 Best drank ice cold in either tins or stubbie, easy drinking,, very cheap drop
