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!

Very watery and lacks its own character. This beer leaves no real impression and works probably best as a thirst quencher.

solidfunk (6843) - 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 (421) - 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 (1578) - @ $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 (9221) - 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 (5735) - 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 (226) - 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.

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 (6477) - 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!
