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.

macca147 (109) - 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.

Skarecrow (630) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 18, 2017
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 (7312) - 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.

CurlyJoe (214) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 6, 2017
Refreshing Aussie beer. Nothing special in aroma or appearance. Taste is quite bitter, but a clean bitterness. Also some malty sweetness. Will opt for this over most other mass produced brews at a Surf Club or RSL, as it has a bit more character and taste.

Bunnerz (7) - Hamilton, AUSTRALIA - DEC 14, 2016 does not count
It is not the best tasting beer but there is something special about a VB stubbie. Strong after taste and can have a mighty good session on these bad boys.

Towey1989 (2558) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2016
Bottle at Beyond The Pale, Leek. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, grain, slight butter, a little cereal and subtle grassy hops. Taste of caramel, grain, butter, some cereal and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A grainy, grassy bitterness in the finish. Not a terrible lager but very buttery and grassy. Average for flavour. Ok for its style.

Aroma is rather weak and grainy but not unpleasant. Taste of grains and grass. Slightly bitter finish. It is not too bad.

josanguapo (1555) - SPAIN - SEP 21, 2016
From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. After dinner. Biterness reminds cruzcampo, but its more tasty and malty, with some wet herbal notes. Pretty drinkable.
