A hard earned thirst needs a big cold beer, and now the best cold beer has returned to what originally made it great — unashamedly full flavour and full strength at 4.9% alc. And you can rest assured, the big Vic Bitter taste is here to stay.
Victoria Bitter is fermented between 18-18.5°C, which is very warm for lager. Put simply, the higher the temperature, the quicker the fermentation as the yeast multiply and devour the sugars, turning them into alcohol. Why do this? A warm, fast ferment results in a beer with more flavour. If you want bland, flavourless beer, you better look elsewhere.
