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.

By far my favorite cerveza from Mexico. Not too watery, not to plain. Great flavor, easy drinking and smooth. Smells like a lager would but its not worth skipping. Viva La Mexico :)

This is possibly the best tasting Lager made in Mexico that's available, but hard to find, in the U.S. I do not expect ale drinkers to ever give a favorable rating to a lager or pilsner. In the same respect, I will not rate a heavy, dark beer unless I like(d) it. Those of you who like the clean, refreshing flavor of PACIFICO ( Mexico ) will likely find that you'll love VICTORIA. UNLIKE CORONA... you don't have to throw a salad into it to realize its beauty!

I enjoyed this 12oz from the brown bottle in a mug.

The color is deep amber with good clarity and thin white head with fine bead and spots of lace.The smell is yeasty with slight buttery odor and light malt sweetness in the nose with gentle floral ester. The feel is mildly sweet with medium carbonation and light caramel sweetness with smooth body and light heft with mostly dry finish.

The malt has a good amount of flavor with mild caramel in the taste and there is a slight buttery diacetyl element with mild yeast flavor and practically no hop flavor. This is a pretty standard vienna style lager with mild malt and ok drinkability...I could take it or leave it.

Standard Mexican lager. Light, malty , refreshing and empty.... Only for summer, only if you thirsty.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled at a Mexican restaurant on September 18, 2014.

The waitress brought lime for the frosted mug which was slightly irritating but I dealt with it. Beyond that it pours medium amber with a lingering white head.

Aroma of light toasted bread, rice, grain, and clean hops.

Light body.

The flavor has some mild toasted malt and biscuit notes and a clean hop finish. It is a beer that is meant to be enjoyed as an adjunct lager and yes, it was. But craft? No way. Think of it for what it is and it will get better than a "Poor" rating. I didn't mind it considering the circumstances and I had two of them for dinner so that says something.

Surprisingly good, great taste, no lime or salt needed. Only down side is availability. Not well known so few sellers.

Mexican beers tend to be a little singular. But this one comes out of left field and is actually pretty good. Great flavor no corny/rice after taste found in most mexican beers. It isn't skunky, it's really decent. Good for a nice session and good at a BBQ a change of pace from coronas.
