Name: Victorian Bitter or VB

Style:bitter Lager

Origin:Melbourne Australia


Victorian Bitter:
Australia's favourite full strength beer, Victoria Bitter or VB as it's fondly known, has a tradition of rewarding hard work and hard play, dating back to the 1890s. Over the last 10 years, it's been a consistent winner in the esteemed Australian Liquor Industry Awards (ALIA), more recently picking up "Best Full Strength Beer" in 2001, "Tap Beer of the Year" in 2002, and "Best Full Strength Beer" again in 2003.

VB is a full flavoured brew, less malty in character and slightly darker than CUB's traditional lagers. A gentle fruitiness in the aroma complements the sweet malt on the mid-palate balancing perfectly with a robust, hop bitterness.

Name: Dreher



Clean, with a pleasant hop smell, and a barely perceivable malt scent and taste. Slightly bitter, golden - yellow, mirror clean pale beer. It is rich in carbon dioxide, quite foamy, with a long lasting head.

Beerpig rating:7.5/10

Dreher is Hungary's most popular beer and if you are ever in Budapest you are bound to be served Dreher which is where i first discovered it it. Its a great refreshing beer to have on a hot day and i consumed plenty of them while sitting in cafes on Vaci Ucta street in Budapest. A great bar to have some is Vendiak in Budapest.

Paulaner Hefe-Weibier

NAME: Paulaner

STYLE: Wheat Beer

ORIGON: Munich Germany


Paulaner Hefe-Weizen is the company's flagship style and brings the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of Munich's beer gardens to America. It is a classic Bavarian wheat beer. "Hefe" in German translates to yeast and "Weizen" (pronounced Vi-Zen) translates to wheat. Yeast retained in the beer is responsible for the cloudy appearance of Paulaner Hefe-Weizen. A centrifuge process is used with traditional wheat beers to retain the yeast instead of the typical filtering process used with beers that are clear in appearance. Paulaner Hefe-Weizen contains 60% malted wheat and 40% malted barley. Wheat beer was originated in the German state of Bavaria in the 15th century. In Bavaria today wheat beers represent almost 20% of the beer category and Paulaner is one of the fastest growing at an average rate of nearly 10% per year since 1995.* While the wheat beer segment in the U.S. is much smaller, the style is gaining more attention. The reason why isn't too hard to figure out – wheat beers offer an extremely refreshing taste. Paulaner Hefe-Weizen is refreshment made for relaxing with friends any time of the year.
