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!

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.

very good drinking beer bought one for me and my father paid $25 bucks for both 40oz bottles, herd stories from the old folks about this beer when i was growing up they swore that beers today dont compare to the unpasturised beer that victoria is they said they could even drink this beer at room temperature which i came to find out is very true and ill stick with the old folks knowledge since they've been around longer than me so cheer this is mexicos bet keep secret.

Rating from a SUPER FRESH 12oz Bottle [less then 3 weeks old]~ Maybe a lot of the rather low ratings for this Brew is Because it was past it's Prime/out of Date/......? That is the only reason [other than personal Taste of course] I could come up with,for such a wonderful Beer getting such shitty ratings,..
Pours a Beautiful almost Copper Color,and Looks very Inviting Indeed,..[you just cannot wait to dive in ] smells nice and Malty,faint sweet smell..almost like honey,and wow! a wiff of Hops? very Nice! this Beer Really does follow the nose,though it taste even better then it looks,right away a very nice Malty flavor hits you,with just a touch of sweet notes,followed by a rather surprising Hop flavor I was not expecting ~Awesome! and a Nice bit of prickly Carbonation Really makes this Brew a Perfect Choice for Quaffing down on a Hot and Humid summer Day,very,VERY Refreshing and Absolutely one of my new Favorite Mexican Brews~love it!

I had never had this before today when I found it on tap nearby my home. I'm very pleasantly surprised with it. I tend to find a great deal of beers too bitter for my taste and this is very refreshing. It's definitely not overly bitter to be sure. Adding a line to it also enhanced this already good tasting beer. If you don't drink often I'd recommend this to you.

Great color

likes: very drinkable, not too strong, enjoyed the lingering finish of light hops.

Very good served with Tacos

I really think some of my beer bretheren should give this beer another try since it is finally available in the US, right now its only available in Chicago But hopefully it wll move its way to Los Angeles and Dallas

I had been waiting for this beer to be imported to the states for a very long time. Best mexican beer out there. 100 times better than that bullshit Corona. Overall I think this is one of my favorite beers. I would recommend for everyone to atlas try this beer once. You will love it. No doubt about it.

Nice amber lager. I have good luck with this beer. It has a nice aroma and a sweet and light hoppy taste. Great summer beer not heavy but has a bit of color and nice head. Being from Texas maybe we get fresher bottles. I am surprised about some of the weaker scores here. I have never found this beer to be flavorless or lacking carbonation. Maybe they should complain to their supplier.

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