There is a reason this wasn’t imported here for well over one hundred years. This Vienna-style lager, which is an ugly light brown color, is terrible. It tastes like Busch in a can, no BS. Also, the glass they designed is quite top heavy and will fall over if you breathe on it wrong. Another attempt at trying to market a crap beer to unsuspecting drinkers. They call it ultra-premium. Ha!

Can (Thanks Jukka). Deep orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grainy, some maize, mild toasted notes as well as some earth. Flavour is kind of dusty, grainy, some slight toasted and mild strange sweetish notes. Watery and lacks a body pretty much.

ContemplateBeer (2007) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 14, 2016
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Rob G.; shared with Boo. Aroma: Very light toasted malts; maybe a touch of apple cider vinegar? Hmm. Additionally, a dash of some noble family hops in there. Appearance: Transparent golden light brown with very soft carbonation holding up a bubbly tan head that settles into a thin ring. Flavor: Initially toasty and semi-sweet, but is quickly reigned in with some decent hop bitterness- well, more than you’re likely to see in virtually any mass-market Mexican lager (as least from what I’ve had). The finish is semi-dry. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Not too bad, really. I prefer the fuller malt character of Negra Modelo, but I’d wager this is the better warm weather beer.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear golden orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Okay aromas with solid balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with poor strength, and a bit too yeasty. Taste of cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, toasted biscuit, light honey/nuttiness, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Minimal dryness. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal yeast notes present in the taste. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/creamy, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4%. Overall this is a good Vienna lager. All around good robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, clean, and refreshing to drink. This improved as I finished the glass. There was quite a bit of corn/DMS in the aromas initially, but it went away as it sat in the glass; none were present in the flavors. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12 oz bottle from the six type sampler case. Pretty much a run-of-the-mill Mexican beer with nothing special. Was a bit weak in taste.

Pours clear amber, short lived white head. .Aroma is subdued grains. Taste is light sweet malt, hint of hops. A touch if corn? Light mouthfeel. Not great, but a drinkable Vienna lager.

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.
