Style and Ingredients


Victoria Bitter was first brewed by Thomas Aitken in 1854 as a full flavoured, full strength and thirst quenching beer for the harsh Australian climate.

It delivers higher bitterness through the Australian family of Pride of Ringwood hops, combined with a 4.9% abv for a balanced, full flavoured beer that retains its flavour ice cold.

Aroma and Taste


Full flavoured, full strength beer; the gentle fruitiness of the aroma compliments the sweet maltiness in the mouth which in turn balances perfectly with the clean hop bitterness of the finish.
