This looks like an Amber (red ale, if you prefer), a clear dark beer the color of which lies right on the border between orange and red. The head is a somewhat wispy foam that holds up a thin layer on top and drops down a modicum of splotchy lace.
Grainy all the way through, the aroma begins with a startling smack of something sharp. It's extremely unpleasant, and it's fortunate that it doesn't last long. Otherwise, it's got the vegetal and corn husk notes typical of an AAL, certainly not a Vienna.
The taste is better, and it manages to resemble something like beer. Some pale malts and a little grass come through with the husk and the malts even add some breads.
The light body is expected, but the grainy astringency mars it. It finishes a little warmer than expected with a bit of a bit, though crispness isn't especially sharp.
It may be a BA misclassification, but if this is out there in the same market as Negro Modelo, and they're going to claim the same style, this one might as well not even be out there at all. Negro isn't great beer, but it's respectable, as opposed to this beer.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Very clear amber color, a cream colored head disappears quickly leaving nothing, no lacing remains on the glass.

Aroma: Little in the way of the nose, only faint traces of some malt sweetness.

Taste: Like the aroma, there's little here to offer, but also little to be offended by. There's some faint caramel sweetness and some tangy aftermath in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light in body. Carbonated.

Overall: I rate on style, and in this case Mexican lagers get thrown in for comparison, and this was pretty decent based on that. I imagine it tastes a while lot better out of the bottle on a nice Mexican beach.

3.4/5  rDev +16.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance
Soapy off white head. It sticks around for awhile then dissipates without much lacing. Clear, light copper colored beer with active carbonation.

Smell
Mild. Maybe hops. Maybe malt.

Taste
It starts out malty and mildly sweet. It transitions to a dry finish. Not bad for an adjunct lager. It tastes like a higher quality version of Modelo.

Mouthfeel
Dry bitterness remains. Somewhere between light and medium bodied.

Overall
Nothing to write home about. Not bad. Adjunct lager. Cool looking bottle label. Has some character. Not offensive. Good with food.

Another brew from South of the Border that didn't quite cut it for me. Out of the bottle the beer had a great dark amber color with a perfectly white head to accent the beer. Unfortunately, the head had no staying power - dissipates ting very fast and leaving no lacing to speak or write about. I was very disappointed with the coppery scent of the beer and was wary to actually drink it, but was surprised at the decent flavor and mouthfeel. Overall, if you can get past the weird odor, Victoria is pretty decent.
