Consumed in October 2004 in Cancun, Mexico from a bottle. I've had many of these before, so I figured I would have it again and actually write some notes on it. A pretty decnt beer! I'm even a little impressed. Pours an amber color with a small head and the slightest of lacing. Smells of sweet, maybe fruity or floral hops. Maybe a bit of corn or rice or something I can't really tell what the other scent is. The hops in this beer are pretty tasty. Good, in fact maybe a bit too mach carbonation. Not really watery at all. A very good beer while sitting on the beach or kicking back with a few fish tacos. Wish they had buckets of these on the beach instead of Corona.

After throwing down quads and other dark Belgians all winter and spring and steady intermingling cases of ayinger Oktoberfest in-between, I have to throw on my Costas and Sperrys and unwind with the finest damn island hoppin beer of all time.. No not you, corona.
I can not be hater here. This is a very good Meixcan beer. This beer is godd with pizza , mexican food or any spice foods. It is close second to Corona Extra!

Apperance- Golden with a fizzy white head an a minimal lacing. Like a adjunct lager.

Smell- Some grains,corn, and hops.

Taste- Hasa light flavor, clean flavor with some after taste. I t was very good good balance and mild mild bitterness on the back end whic i did not care for.

Mouthful-Carbonation that doesn't fade and moderate dryness.

Overall- This is a Great beer for the Summer! It rrank high beer compared to others in its class, Pacifico is head and shoulder above the rest.. I will be drank this beer for the summer and many summers to come! Thank you Grupo Modelo in makeing another great beer!

You guys are ridiculous, this is absolutely the best mexican beer in existence. The smell reminds of the mexican breeze. This beer has the true flavor of a mexican beer. If you dont like mexican beers then dont drink it and dont complain. Maybe the reason none of ustedes like it is because none of you guys have any taste buds. Viva Mexico, Viva Pacifico.

The best Mexican beer period

This beer has a time and place. It is not to be dismissed out if hand. While lacking complexity and balance, it hits the spot in a hit day, out doors, when you are looking to throw back a quite a few. A crowd pleaser for good old beer drinkers.

Appearance – Yellow body; actually kind of cloudy for a Mexican ale. There was also a small head which, of course, dissipated quickly.

Smell – Very grainy with a whiff of floral hops.

Taste – More grainy malt on the taste buds, with a little hop again to add minimal dimension. There’s a skunk in there dying to get out, but he thankfully stayed put for this offering.

Mouthfeel – This is where Pacifico jumps ahead of other Mexican beers. The carbonation is real, not the fake soda pop variety you find sometimes in other, less refined piss beers. It makes this one refreshing.

Drinkability – IMHO, just what a Mexican beer should be. Lots of water, a nice mouthfeel, and enough taste to pass for cervesa. I served this one up muy frio – half hour in the freezer – made sure I was hot and tired from lots of yard work, and guzzled it after the tasting drinks.

12 oz. bottle poured into a footed pilsner glass

It pours the standard AAL, pale draw, white head, lots of tiny bubbles rising up. No lacing.

Aroma is of nothing. Seriously, no malt, hops, corn, rice, sweetness, alcohol or anything. Nothing. I'm actually amazed at the lack of aroma. I actually don't think I can downgrade it too much because of it.

The flavor is there though. A light graininess with a Minot metallic and then plastic towards the end. The plastic taste lasts into the aftertaste which is disappointing. Still not an offensive beer.

Mouthfeel is a little oily but still gas a lot of carbonation to keep it light. Very drinkable still. I was actually surprised on how not disappointed I was with drinking this. Leaps and bounds better than its other Mexican cousin, Corona.

A very decent Mexican brew. This poured a typical straw colour and had a minimal head. Smelled of grain and slightly of hops. Served very cold, this beer is good...a definant step above Corona and quite drinkable with mexican dishes. This brew has a slight skunkyness to it though, but it does not come out too bad untill it warms up. A very drinkable mexican beer.

Pours a very pale gold with a fizzy, non-commital head. You can just tell this one is going to run away as soon as it hits air. Lots of carbonation bubbles up the side of the glass, with bubbles floating up constantly. Mouthfeel is watery and fizzy.

Taste - well, a little bit of bready, mild hops and some corn. Not much body here at all, and smacks slightly of that macro cheapness. Better than Corona, and without the skunk. Probably needs a lime and a plate of mexican food.

This is still, however, my macro choice. Not as painful as most, and fun when you're at a Mexican restaraunt.
