I think this beer is a little under rated. For the style beer, this is a refreshingly good beer especially in the summer months. Crisp taste, easy drinking and no bitter after taste makes a good beer for the novice drinker.

No Guinness at this Mexican joint in Arizona so they poured me this. Not a bad beer at all ice cold and they didn't have my Irish brew

Bottle poured into a standard pint glass in Cabo San Lucas. A light coppery brown color with a will o' the wisp of a white frothy head. Aroma is a muted caramel sweetness, corn bread, and white grape fruity notes. Inoffensive and thankfully lacking an obvious DMS element. Still has that inescapable macro-lager smell though. Body falls squarely in the moderate range, with excessive carbonation. Taste is a smooth light corn bread sweetness coupled with the subtle grape notes from the nose. Minimal hop aroma or flavor. I do get a sultana raisin sweet dried fruit note here and there. Finishes fairly dry, with a grainy astringency and a few metallic off-flavors. Rather pedestrian brew unfortunately, even if it does represent the vestiges of a rather cool Austrian/German brewing tradition. This one plays it overly safe and still manages to hit a few bum notes.

Purchased at a gas station in Flint MI. Served at 6deg C in a plastic cup

A- Opens well and pours a head that is gone as fast as it came. Clear and light gold.

S- Not much at all here.

T- Metallic and tinny. Like a horrible Corona experiment gone bad. Just bad overall

M- Terribly thin, light and carbonated.

O- Pure garbage. Wish I could have brought this back it was that bad. I poured over half down the sink.

Food Pairing

This one was so bad it made it to the sink so no food pairing on this one.

Sorry

This Modelo produced lager was pretty good. It was a light tan beer with a thin head that disappears quickly. The aroma was only slightly hoppy but the taste was crisp and refreshing

from a bottle, into an imperial pint glass
A: bright clear burnished copper, with a decent head
S: corn, grain, sweet caramel malt...
T: like the nose with a few herbal hops. Not a great combination, and not really living up to the style.
M: fairly light, medium carbonation, lingering malt/corn finish that isn't too great, but an okay mouthful.
Overall: Not too good.

I knew people who would bring Victoria back with them from Mexico back before it was commercially distributed in the US. I am not going to argue that it stacks up to craft beers but if you are looking for something on a hot day or something to stock for a party of non beer geeks this is a solid choice.
