Victoria • Aroma (7/10): Aroma alcohol y caramelos. Leve café. • Apariencia 2/5: o Cabeza (color, consistencia y duración):  Cabeza escasa, blanca de corta duración dejando apenas nata en la pared del tarro. o Cuerpo (textura, carbonización, partículas y color):  Ámbar oscuro, casi ocre. Presencia de gordas burbujas. Se observan algunas partículas. • Sabor 6/10 (inicio, final y duración): o Inicio: Inicio ligero carente de sabor. o Ligero humo al final. Breve umami sobre las muelas. • Paladar 3/5 (Cuerpo, textura, carbonización, final). o Cuerpo ligero, delgado, escasa sensación burbujeante. Final levemente amargo. Resumen 16/20: Pese a poseer una coloración que no se aprecia frecuentemente por estos lares, Cerveza Victoria, también peca de ser una cerveza plana como la mayoría. Me cuesta ubicar en qué lugar de mis preferencias la pondría. Creo que apenas es un poco mejor que las lager claras que se fabrican en la región pero definitivamente no está entre mis favoritas. Sin embargo, si te la dan a buen precio, bien vale la pena preferirla sobre una modelo.

My score for this is low, but it is one of the best ’big brand’ lagers from Mexico. If you compare it with a good beer, it will be horrible. If you compare it with a Corona, Sol, Dos equis or Tecate, it is really good. If you are at a party with good friends, and you drink it really cold from the bottle (save your time, it doesn’t improve too much if you pour it), you will have a great time.

larsniclas (6607) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2016
Bottled from some restaurant near Chichen Itza Golden with a very brief, white head. Cereal aroma wi a strange touch of broth. Sweetish, cereal flavour with a very lo, if any, bitterness. Totally bland!

Drjohnrock (690) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Twelve ounce bottle from Delhi Liquor Store, tasted on May 23, 2015. Medium amber color, nice sweet malty/slightly spicy aroma, some flavor in the finish but taste if mostly watery. If I want water then that’s what I’ll drink. But it get a 2.3 because it’s still better than Corona.

Bottle, many times. Pretty decent richer-darker Mexican amber. Weak, not terribly complex, but entirely drinkable.

teorn88 (6036) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2016
33cl bottle on Akumal beach. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is muted with light grains and straw. Taste has mild bitterness with light grains straw and light skunk. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, meh

I typically rate Mexican amber lagers higher than most because I like them. This is middle of the road for the style. Certainly drinkable but there are better choices.

hfmejias (1260) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle at El Mexicano (Worthington, MN). Poured amber in color, clear, with a nice white head. Aroma of biscuits and malts. Taste of grain and sweet malts, quite watery. Refreshing and easy to drink, serves its purpose.

caribou43 (487) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 8, 2015
It is a basical beer, prefering the bohemia classic. The colour is medium dark copper and the foam is light. The sensation in mouth is so-so some malt and few hop. I will repeat some comments that these beers are perfect with the rich Mexican food like tacos, enchiladas, tlauyda from Oaxaca or a good barbecue with chorizo from Oaxaca and thousands of plates.

KUEric (934) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 17, 2015
I’ve had it, but figured since I’m in a rating mood again, I’d get the tick mark (901). It is exactly what I remembered. Watery deliciousness for a hot summer day or a spicy salsa laden burrito.
