Pours out kinda light for a Vienna lager. Sticks to the yellow. Small 1/3" white head. Aroma of corn and slight sweet malt.

Taste, highly carbonated mild beer water. Just not much here. Can't discern what makes it a Vienna lager instead of an adjunct lager. Still tastes like there is corn in the mix. Sure, its not as bad as most Mexican lagers, but this doesn't rise to the level of Negra Modelo for when I want a little heftier lager from south of the border. The carbonation is high, the hops and malt are low.

D237 on the bottle. BB December 23rd?

It's a pretty gold colour, good head of foam, with lacing.

Smells of grain, light corn, bits of citrus, bread.

Malt isn't all that bready, maybe toasted? Light taste of corn, more grain, minimal bitterness and it doesn't seem to come from any citrus.
It's big with the flavours but what's there is satisfying to me. It IS more bitter than the Modelo Especial and I like that on a hot summer day.

L: brilliant copper amber with streams of rapidly rising bubbles helping to form a very finely beaded 1" white foam cap with fair retention

S: moderately low grain, a hint of fruit, a trace of sulfur, low hop aromas and low corn

T: It starts creamy with moderately low corn sweetness, moderate hop bitterness, a trace of apple with apple and corn growing slightly in the middle. Light malts with a slight bread crust, bread crumb, and light toast character are medium low

F: medium body and medium high carbonation.

O; a drinkable beer with some character that is neither overwhelming nor offensive

Copper colored beer with a rapidly fading head.Taste and aroma are caramel malts. I was not expecting this to be as flavorful as it was. I think it should be tried at least once.

Color is darkish yellow with a scent of caramel and wheat. The taste is just a follow up of malt along with the wheat. Has a small hint of toasted hops. The taste was decent but it did not go down very smooth.

Better than I expected it to be, worse than I hoped it would be. Probably one of the most watered down representations of the "vienna lager" style I've had

Poured into a narrow half pint glass: color is copper, head is off white/very light tan with fine to small bubbles; head presents 1/2 inch thick.

Smell is somewhat neutral malt, maybe hint of caramel and grain.

Taste is similar: neutral malt flavor, not much detracting, a bit more toast and caramel than aroma.

Mouthfeel is crisp, very dry, somewhat to style but maybe a bit overcarbonated.

Overall an amber Mexican lager that is better than expected with a somewhat lighter flavor than similar style beers.

Pours a beautiful amber. Smells of malt, caramel, and some adjuncts. Taste follows the nose exactly. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall this is one of the better mass produced lagers out there.

Strong carbonation stream and a light amber body with a minuscule off white head. Nose has a caramel malt backbone and a light cereal note.

Crisp and light and texture, with a generally mild flavor, with more caramel malt, vanilla and a touch of black pepper. None of it in force. Overall, inoffensive and easy to drink. Not bad in a pinch.

this is was better than a lot of other macro cerveza types, it really is, and it surprises me that its not more popular among the folks who drink those beers here in the states. there is nothing offensive about it, no adjuncty sweetness, no metallics, no chemicals, none of that, it doesnt even taste that cheap to me, i get some dry cereal grain flavor in the middle and the faintest bittering hop in the finish, its majorly clean and shockingly easy to drink, but also a little more substantial than some of its peers, and it appeals to my beerier side in that way. its also super dry and brightly carbonated, which make it refreshing to the max and really easy to slug down. really nothing wrong with this at all, and when i am in the mood for this kind of thing, i will reach for victoria again, it really is better than a lot of the rest of these that come around. wish it hadnt taken me so long to try one, i really enjoyed it with some spicy tacos and could see it working with all of that kind of food really well. if you have written all of these off, give a fresh and frosty victoria a try, you wont be let down...

Golden color with a thick head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of malt and corn sweetness and a bit of toasted malts and bread.
Flavor with notes of malt sweetness with a faint hint of toasted malts and floral hops that are not enough to give some chocolate notes. Medium dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
This is the popular version of a Vienna Lager, more like a regular Mexican beer going towards a Vienna Lager. That said, this felt much better than the regular local adjunct lagers. This is very fresh which might have helpd.
