Inoffensive, with nothing of note standing out in a good or bad way. This is a good alternative beer on hot days when you need to drink a lot in a short amount of time.

Had a bottle at Krueger’s. Just your basic domestic - grassy corn with a little sugar.

De Grupo Modelo(MEX) propiedad de AB in Bev(BRA-BEL) la popular “Victoria” una Vienna Lager de 4.0% ABV, la versión en botella cuenta con la imagen del héroe de leyendas de diversos países europeos Gambrinus al cual se le atribuye la creación de la cerveza, aun no se acuerda bien la procedencia de este personaje, el estilo Vienna originalmente era una cerveza de festival, fue popularizada por los migrantes austríacos en México que tambien fueron los fundadores de las dos casas cerveceras mas importantes en ese entonces de México. Victoria visualmente tiene una escasa corona de espuma de ínfima retención, actividad de carbonatación bastante considerable, color ambarino claro y traslucidez de las Lagers, cuerpo acuoso que no hace marca en el vaso. Los aromas no son tan apropiados para una Vienna, ya que es evidente un olor dulce muy similar a el azúcar quemado y notas a maíz(dos adjuntos o elementos ajenos a la ley de la pureza alemana), siendo que el estilo es reconocible por la ausencia de adjuntos y maltas especiales, se puede apreciar cierta aroma a pan o masa, muy simple el aroma y mas similar a una International Amber Lager. Ya en el paladar muestra un balance hacia el dulzor pero no de malta sino a azúcar con ligeros toques tostados, sabor sulfuroso o a agua mineral, pan blanco, maíz muy claro, amargor mínimo y al final de nuevo dulce, cuando una Vienna debe ser seca y mostrar notas a cereales y no mínimo dulzor, esta mas dentro de una Amber Lager.

Bottle with a lime at a good Mexican dinner. Didn’t need a lime though. Not skunked. Pretty clean with a sweet finish. Great compliment to the food.

nazzty (1256) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2016
Very watery and lacks its own character. This beer leaves no real impression and works probably best as a thirst quencher.

solidfunk (7351) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Not the worst among Mexican lagers but pretty close. Some papery aroma. Golden pour with ok head. Tangy mash malt finish. Had a bottle of this on a boat in Xochilmilco.

bnokk (453) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 2, 2016
APPEARANCE- Light carmel color. Very clear, little head. NOSE- smells like a pils or lager style. FLAVOR- similar to the smell, tastes like a fairly typical lager style beer. Very smooth and well balanced malt character. NOTES- Great beer for hot weather drinking.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2016
Can to plastic glass @ Alinea: The Progression. Drank in the kitchen with the chefs. Yellow lager aroma and flavour which was great on it’s own and better when turned into a michelada. Washed down a shot of mezcal just fine as well. A tame beverage for sure.

slowrunner77 (9937) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 21, 2016
a step up from standard Mexican lager, but still behind the curve compared to most craft lagers. decent lawn mower beer at best. Semi sweet, crisp and clean, non-offensive.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a minimal fizzy white head that vanished completely. The nose is sweet caramel malt with a slight huskiness. The flavor is pretty bland and boring, as expected. Sweet caramel maltiness with zero hop presence, lingering sweet and grainy finish. Medium bodied with a sticky clinginess and light fizzy carbonation. Just about what you would expect from this one.

Cajun (345) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 28, 2016
12oz bottle - Pours amber with white head. I found this to be interesting. A mix between a California common and a Corona. Aroma of biscuits, bananas, and cloves. Subtle flavors of grass, toast, banana, and edible flowers. I didn’t hate it like my preconceived notions told me I would. So there’s that.
