More flavor than any comparable Mexican beer. No skunk taste like Corona. This beer is what you take to a party. A lime goes a long way with this beer and makes it even smoother. Perfect golden color, pours smoothly. Not bitter at all. Even on draft and cans this is the mexican beer for everyone.

4.75/5  rDev +78.6%

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.

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.

A- I cringe at the fact that I'm even pouring this is a glass that doesn't already contain V8, lime, and hot sauce because all other things aside, pacifico makes the best michelada (the only acceptable beer cocktail). In a pilsner glass it's clear light golden with a short fizzy white head and minimal lacing. No better or worse than any adjunct lager. In a bottle, it's brown with a happy yellow label and preferably dripping with little chunks of ice. Sometimes it wears an outer banks neoprene zip up pirate suit.

S- pale grains, maybe some corn, and a minute bit of grassy and floral hops. Miles away from the clear bottled corona and modelo, there's no skunk or off flavor, no tecate blandness, and almost as close to a pilsner as Bohemia. For what I want out of this beer, it is indeed good.

T- light flavor, clean flavor, better flavor. Among its peers it's at the head of the class. Once again not skunked, pleasant mild bitterness on the back end balances out the barely sweet grain flavor. No lime necessary.

MF- take that drinkable corona feeling and make it a hundred times better. Completely refreshing and thirst quenching with carbonation that doesn't fade out. Perfect moderate dryness.

D- I can't be a hater here. It might be a shitty beer compared to other styles but when you consider the class it's in, pacifico is the star. This year and probably for many years to follow, I'll be putting aside the clear bottles and gettin down with that golden anchor volcanic island lifesaver adorned with malt and hops. Give clara a chance. Not after labor day though..

Look: Yellow crystal color, two fingers of foam that disappears very soon;

S: Soft, a mix of fresh malt with corn, remember me the sea i don't know why;

T: Corn mixed with sweet malt, some slightly spicy hops at the end;

M: Extra crisp and refreshing, medium bitterness, medium body and high carbonation;

D: The best beer to drink with sea food.

I'm sure glad I tried this before reading these reviews. I live in the Bahamas and with summer coming, this is a most wonderful brew to have around. It's light, rich mouthfeel is followed by sweet corn and a bit of ocean spray. This is my favorite Mexican beer so far and reminds me of the kind of brew the majors should be making. Put me on a boat, catching mahi, with a few of these in the cooler, heaven.

Perhaps the new distribution of this beer has been a goal for the brewery. A lot of people like it in sunny days, it is very drinkable and won't get you durnk so easy. The colour is pale yellow, the one for a lager here. BUt the closest you are to the city were it is brewed the best it tastes.

I've been a fan of Pacifico Clara for a long time. It is probably one of my favorite beers if you particpating in a session. It has no real signature taste. It's easy to drink though. I'm also partial to mexican beers. It has no impressive color. The taste is arguablly not that great. You can dink many of these and not be tired of them. I recommend this for any person that just wants to drink not too seriosly and wants to have fun.
