Light body. Crisp refreshing goes down smooth. Taste of corn, malt, and grains. Good session beer.

I enjoy Mexican Lagers and are probably my favorite style of beer. I find lime and a little salt to be a great combination with any beer. I think Pacifico is a bit smoother than some of the other Mexican beers like Modelo and Corona. I enjoy Modelo Especial as one of my favorite summer beers, but change up from time to time and get Pacifico. Pacifico does not have the aftertaste that Modelo has, so in that respect it is a bit cleaner. Pacifico is hands down better than Corona. Corona is just a terrible beer, skunky. Pacifico has the right idea using brown bottles. I think that helps with the freshness.

My favorite of the Mexican lagers. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Nothing to write home about, but definitely a good beer for a day with some friends in the warm summer sun. Get some reggae on the radio, grab some good friends on a nice warm sunny day, and throw a few of these back in a nice relaxed outdoor environment.. preferably a good beach and I promise you'll make this your go to beer for such an occasion.

Add lime, super drinkable and pretty tasty to boot. Couldn't ask for a much better adjunct.

Pours a clear light golden colir with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with lingering grains.

Very basic but a better choice in the mass production Mexican brewed beers. Way better than Corona or Tecate. If options are limited at a Mexican place, try this. Just a small hint of flavor in it that makes it stand out just a bit. I sometimes throw a lime wedge in, but works fine on its own too. No need for the lime to make it palatable like Corona.

Pacifico pours a straw color with a very small head. There is a skunk aroma. The taste is full of adjuncts, very grainy tasting. Flat and offensive flavors. Overall its hard to say something nice, bad flavors that are strong.

Taste isn't great, but its not the worst. Very carbonated and not a ton of flavor in it. Its cheap so I drink it.

Served on tap. Pale yellow with minor head. Very little aroma, and whatever aroma I had was drowned out by the lime. Taste was bland, all carbonation and metal. Decent texture, not great.

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.

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.
