Pennsylvania

2.23/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Pacifico pours out a light gold color, very light, almost straw. The head has a nice puffiness to it, but it's fizzing down swiftly. Excellent clarity. Not much carbonation visible, at all. I think I saw a bubble or two rise up, as if they were the last to go. No lacing, as expected.

Smells like corn syrup and musty stale lager grains. Very similar aroma to Miller Lite, as far as I can recall. No alcohol presence, but mild crispness and fermentation. A beer-y scent that is low in magnitude and rife with adjuncts. Economy lager stuffs. Who wouldn't be opposed to dropping a lime in this?

The flavors are muddled and watery. Still, there's generic lager flavor. Sure, it would be decent if it had some grassiness, any kind of real hop presence, or better quality grains; but, as an adjunct lager, it's not horrific. There's almost a weird fruitiness to the way the malts are steeped crossed with a note of the lager yeast, and I can't entirely fault this flavor, as it has some flavor, proper. Corn syrup and mustiness are obvious, of course. Typical Mexican swill, but without any realized harshness. Smooth-drinking, with a burst of late carbonation that runs a little high. Causes some stomach bubble unrest, but it's simple enough. The body is a joke, but I'm not going to write a separate paragraph knocking the mouthfeel, which honestly, is expectingly lacking. Lacking, but not difficult.

I didn't like Sol or Corona, and Pacifico isn't much better, but I think it's better. Take that.
