Victory lager is a Vienna lager style beer that pours to a light tan color. The foam on this beer is very slight and it doesn’t last long at all, leaving behind a not so attractive beer. The nose on this beer is one of sweet grains and rather mild to the senses.

Tasting this beer yields a flavor that is rather, well, so- so. It features flavors of sweet grains, lightly toasted malt, a touch of caramel, and is very smooth. The issue is that the taste just isn’t very pronounced. The body of the beer is light and crisp and the taste is refreshing enough, but the product tastes like it was brewed with only a fraction of ingredients it was intended to be brewed with.

Victoria lager is a decent enough product and it likely won’t offend anyone, but it is quite unremarkable and it leaves little that is memorable. Try some if you like, just don’t expect to come away from the experience feeling very impressed.

Clean crisp and light. Not your typical light beer in that it's cleanliness taste is not muddled by sweetness.

12 ounce bottle

Pours light caramel, clear under a thin and vanishing off white head, that leaves no lacing.

Just a hint of malt on the nose.

Thin and on the watery side, with just some faint caramel, and sweet malt. Would be passable on a warm day or if I was actually in mexico eating some tacos with hot sauce. Besides that stay away.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is grain and grass with not too much else going on. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of grain and grass, with some very sweet malt in there as well. Medium carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Extremely simple, but actually not too bad. Better than expected.

Dark gold to light brown in color with wonderful clarity. Just a trace of white head covers about a third of the top. Aroma is predominantly corn but there is also light malt. The taste is similar to Pacifico with corn being dominant. There's a coppery hop bitterness at the very back of the palate that is prevalent in the fade. The mouth is lightly carbonated. Another warm weather quaffer from Mexico.

Undated 12 oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours with a deep medium amber body and a moderate size head that displays very good retention and leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.

Aroma: primarily Pilsner style hops, but with some faint baked bread

Flavor: mainly Pilsner style hops with some faint baked bread and mild+ bitterness. I can't agree with Modelo that this has "strong flavor", but it is flavorful and bold in the realm of mass-produced Mexican lagers.

Mouthfeel: Light body with very crisp carbonation and a dry finish.
