A dark yellow coloured beer. Strange for a lager one, but it is ok when you drink it. NOt refreshing at all, but it does not taste awfull as many of th macro lagers. The smell is alittle honney and does not have many foam or bubbles, but it sticks to the glass, so, after all,is not that bad, for me it was, fine, after a hot day, it can be deliscious.

Victoria brewed by Industrial Cervecera S.A. / Compañía Cervecera De Nicaragua. This brew pours out a nice deep amber color with a small white head. The brew is almost alooks like tea in color. The smell is rich skunky, with, grains, and malts. You pick up a hit of hops in this brew. The taste is bold with flavor. It is sweet, with malts and grains. Victoria is a real nice relishing brew. The mouthfeel is nice and clean. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice brew to it.Industrial Cervecera S.A. / Compañía Cervecera De Nicaragua, did a nice job with this brew. Overall I'm giving this brew a a solid 4 out 5. Nothing bad but nothing great.

This is the second most common beer found in Nicaragua after Tona. I would say it is slightly better. Victoria is a fairly typical mass produced warm weather lager. Fairly inoffensive,it goes down remarkably easy in the hot weather and is really suited for relaxing in a hammock. Between this an Tona, I would rank Victoria slightly higher. It seems to have a bit more malt and heft to it than Tona.

Not a beer to seek out but if In Nicaragua,this can hit the spot.

Also looking at their website, this appears to be 4.9% ABV as opposed to 4.6% for Tona

From a 12 fl. oz. can marked 090809-0742C2. Sampled on March 17, 2009.

On St. Patrick's Day I was drinking a Nicaraguan beer provided to me by a friend who had just returned from two weeeks in her homeland.

A - Fairly typical of a pale lager. It pours yellow with a whole lof of bubbly head that simmers down after a moment. No lacing to speak of. It reminds me of an American macro.

S - It smells like beer. It had some decent malty sensations and an aroma of rice, corn, and grass.

T & M - The mouthfeel is watery-to-medium. The taste is slightly hopped with a background of grains and grass. It went down in short order.

I love my friend for bringing this back to me to try because she said it was her favorite but to me it was not dissimilar to the average American adjunct lager.

This beer is almost exactly Tona. In fact when I drank them side by side, they were all but indistinguishable. Whatever.

If you've ever had Dos Equis you've had this beer. The brew is a fizzy yellow drink with a little aroma and only a token head. Hops are absent in the flavor which is sweet with light colored malt. Adjuncts are not detectable. Mouthfeel is as weak as the rest of the beer and I can't find a better word to describe it than "average". Drinkability is very high. On a hot Nicaraguan afternoon these are very refreshing and cheaper than water. Somedays all you need is some cheap beer, a good steak, and some good friends, know what I mean gringo?

lol, ok, the reason this is rated so high for me is that I was laying in a hammock on the beach drinking it... this beer is one of only 2 you can actually drink in Nicaragua... but they come out of a fridge with the temperature actually on the door, so you know how cold it is, essentially... let me just say that this is the most refreshing beer, but on ly if it is cold...it is exactly what you think it is... cheap generic lager... but is damn tasty when in a hammock close to freezing... knock back about 12 of these during the day at about $.50 a pop, and you cant go wrong... dont seek it out though, but when in Rome...

A very hot day in Granada, now back at the hostel and ready for some brew. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pale yellow color with a one half inch head. Smell is rather mild, some grains. Taste is crisp, light, some corn. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Its whats available in Nicaragua. Nothing special, not too flavorful, nothing that anyone would really go for unless you like standard "lite" style beers. I was in Nicaragua for a couple of days, and with the limited choices, it was either this or Tona. It looks like any other beer in the area, clear. It smells average, nothing special. It does serve a small purpose, it can easily be a replacement for water after walking around in the heat of Nicaragua. It goes down easy, but dont expect much out of it. If you are at a point where you can order it, you are most likely in Nicaragua, and there arent any "better" options, so you might as well....

Hmm where to begin. This beer has it's place on drunken nights or for a stroll down the beach, but that's about all it offers. Tona kicks it's ass...hands down.

I wouldn't recommend it, better beers available in Nicaragua, even Frost is better than this.
