Pacífico brewed by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. , with an ABV of 4.50% This brew pours out a nice amber color with a nice white head. It has the look of most lager brews on the market. The smell is skunky with grains and malts. You pick up a hit of hops in the smell of this brew. The taste is bold with flavor. You pick up on grains, malts, and a hit of hops in the taste of this brew. The mouthfeel is smooth and rich with flavor. I like how this brew goes down smooth. There is nothing overpowering in this brew, it has a nice balance to it Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V., did a nice job with this brew. I would buy this brew again.

I will make this fast. I thought this was going to be a bit better than it was, not wasting a lot of time on the review.

Appearance - Pours a super transparent golden color with a soap bubbly half finger that dissolves as fast as it appears. No lacing. Since it is snowing here I like the thought of drinking Mexican beer, sitting on a fishing boat not giving a damn.

Smell - A bit of corn, tiny lemon, skunk, urine

Taste - Nothing really. Tin, a bit of bitterness

Mouthfeel - Finishes like water, about the same consistency.

Overall - Move it along. If you want to drink beer south of the border go Corona or Dos Equis at a minimum. This is pretty bad.

Junto con Victoria, de las mejores lager mexicanas, muy pobre si la comparamos con las lupulosas que nos encantan.

One bottle of several poured into a pint glass in Cabo San Lucas. Perhaps the most widely available shitty macro-lager in these parts, with the possible (likely) exception of Corona, a pale yellow fizzbomb with no head to speak off, although if you deliberately do an aggressive pour into a clean glass you can get about four fingers of blink and you miss it creamy white foam. Sorry, I fuck around a little when I get bored. Smells pretty mellow but what's there speaks of cooked corn, whiffs of apple and grape hard candy, skunk, dead grass (I am not exaggerating), and sweet dough. Classic macro lager taste and feel. Has almost a cotton candy sweetness, marginally thicker and less corny than Corona but this is not saying that much. More apple and grainy notes late. There is a German brewing tradition in this beer's pedigree but you'd never know it based on taste. Terrible brew truth be told, although a good study for those interested in intimate knowledge of DMS and the odd fruity notes one gets with under-aged beers.
