Pours a clear, light yellow with almost no head. Aroma is minimal, with some light malt and corn. Taste is light, with some sweet malt and and normal clean adjunct lager taste. Mouthfeel is thin but somewhat fizzy with nice carbonation. Overall, a decent adjunct mexican lager that is better than the rest.

On December 19, 2014, a young man by the name of Gabriel Medina became the first South American man to be the world surfing champion. When he won, a swarm of tanned legs and Brazilian flags stormed the Hawaiian beach. They picked up Medina. It was a great celebration. Almost anyone anywhere in the world with a computer or smart phone could have watched this happen live from the Bonzai Pipeline in Hawaii.

This company sponsors the World Surf League making it possible for these events to be available live. You can watch it all live, and videos of all the heats are available on youtube. Even the women's competition has full coverage. The sponsorship of Pacifico Cerveza helps to make this possible.

I love surfing so when I saw this on the shelf in the supermarket the other day I picked it up. The first thing you notice is the color. It has a clear rich golden color like the sands of Ipanama. When you pour it out, it develops a very decent white head. It's a thing of beauty. It's not heavy, and it doesn't have a strong taste, and it's not going to fill you up. With only a 4.5% alcohol level you can drink plenty of these on a hot day on the beach and still be coherent enough to shoot the curl.

This is going to be my beer for the summer of 2015.

A- Golden Yellow and Fizzy.

S- Corn and Strong Ethanol.

T- Pretty Mild and Drinkable. Mostly Corn.

M- High Carbonation and Medium Mouthfeel

O- Not a great beer but it was quite refreshing on a 30 degree Mexican cloudless day.

I drank this coming straight off a Negra Modelo, so perhaps my rating will be a bit skewed. I actually thought this was a pretty good beer, with a malty kick and good mouthfeel. With moderate carbonation and a golden color sprouting a white head, the beer looked and tasted above average to me. Now, is that because I already had two Negra Modelos before I tried this? Perhaps, but as of now, I'm giving it a half decent rating.

Pretty standard AAL. Cardboard and malt. Only drinkable extremely cold. A good beer to drink with spice Mexican food. Also doesn't hurt when you buy a case of these for under $15.

It tastes like a mixture of horse cum and gasoline but is quite earthy. No floral or tropical aromas other than the lime that instantaneously went rotten the moment it touched the beer. Mexican piss water would be an upgrade to this concoction. Shame on myself for paying actual currency for this.

Quite under whelming even for a Mexican lager. To use the words of a certain Arrogant Bastard it's just 'fizzy yellow beer'. Drinkable, though.

This is a beer I drink when I go to the beach and I want something else than water, a fresh lime and it´s good to go. Still bad but better than water.

12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

L - It is pale yellow with very little white head that almost immediately dissipated. No lacing.

S - I smell some light grain notes. It is surprisingly not skunky smelling like Corona as I expected.

T - The taste is light caramel and some grain. It is pretty much unoffensive due to little flavor.

F - Watery

O - I am cooking Mexican dishes today so I thought I would try an unreviewed by me Mexican lager. This is a lot better than Corona. It will wash down the spicy food nicely.

Pacífico brewed by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. , with an ABV of 4.50% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. It has the look of most lager brews on the market. The smell is skunky with grains and malts. You pick up a hit of hops in the smell of this brew. The taste is bold with flavor. You pick up on grains, malts, and a hit of hops in the taste of this brew. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich with flavor. I like how this brew goes down smooth. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V., did a nice job with this brew. I would buy this brew again.

I will make this fast. I thought this was going to be a bit better than it was, not wasting a lot of time on the review.

Appearance - Pours a super transparent golden color with a soap bubbly half finger that dissolves as fast as it appears. No lacing. Since it is snowing here I like the thought of drinking Mexican beer, sitting on a fishing boat not giving a damn.

Smell - A bit of corn, tiny lemon, skunk, urine

Taste - Nothing really. Tin, a bit of bitterness

Mouthfeel - Finishes like water, about the same consistency.

Overall - Move it along. If you want to drink beer south of the border go Corona or Dos Equis at a minimum. This is pretty bad.

Junto con Victoria, de las mejores lager mexicanas, muy pobre si la comparamos con las lupulosas que nos encantan.
