Alabama

3.8/5  rDev +43.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle enjoyed on a hot summer day. Poured into a 12oz mug.

A: Has your typical macro look, light golden yellow. Does have a nice big soapy head that turns into bubbly rings.

S: Sweet corn and grains, a touch of hops.

T: Pretty good, has some light hops and pale malt. This beer does have a sweetness to it and I don't know if it comes from the corn or a bit of citrus.

M: Good carbonation for the beverage considering this is supposed to be a refreshing beverage. Quite refreshing and has a bit of a creamy consistency (low end creamy).

D: Very. After all this is an American style Macro and it pulls it off well. Not only that, it is better than most macros. May not be the best beer in the world, but it does represent the style and I believe it sits pretty high with the style.

3.73/5  rDev +40.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pretty clear and yellow. Perhaps a slight bit deeper than your average American Adjunct

Smell is fairly thin and grainy but fitting for the style. Not looking for much of an overbearing scent when diving into a Pacifico.

Taste isn't at all offensive. Nothing new but certainly a good Mexican beer to session

Taste is light but flavorful. Feels refreshing and can be drank in large numbers in succession.

Overall, I'd say skip the Corona and the XX and go for a Pacifico if you're looking for a light Mexican beer in widespread distribution

3.73/5  rDev +40.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle left my some dinner guests...no freshenss date. Pours a four finger off-white head over a crystal clear light bright straw colored body. Smells of saaz hops (ie, tin) with a very mild malt sweet underneath. Plus a touch of carboard. Amazingly, there is a hint of grassy hop co-ho in the nose. Tastes more sweet than hoppy. Malt is clean of fruity esters. It's a simple sweet with some dry bisuity character that stands over a saaz hop tin flavor that's got a dirty character to it. Mouthfeel is light and the carbonation is such that acrid carb is a bit of the taste profile. Some lacing on the inside of the glass. Burns my tastebuds a bit with each gulp. I was expecting a skunked foul beer, but was pleasantly surprised. This is one of the better 'american macro lagers' I've ever had. Judged to style, not my stout-loving preferences.
