Pacifico Light is a mexican macrobrew from Grupo Modelo. It is the light version of Pacifico. It enters the market as a competition entity to Tecate Light form Cerveceria Cuauhtemoc Moctezuma.

Appearance: Light straw yellow. Almost no head formatio and no lace retention.

Smell: Very little malt aromas, with no hops detected.

Taste: Some maltiness with little bitterness. Some metallic notes.

Mouthfeel: Light and simple. No hop profile, although good carbonation is detectable.

Drinkability: Typical of a mexican macro. Good for the beach or hot summer days as simple refreshment.

Serving type: can

Not much flavor in this one. Super clear with a little bitter bite. Similar to a coors light, but less flavor. I don’t think I ever got a buzz and realized it is only 3% ABV! Nonetheless, a crisp Mexican lager and not a bad thirst quencher while getting a tan and watching the beach rovers..

A friend from work brought some of these to the States from Mexico, and gave me a couple. He wanted to see if I could brew up some of these for him and his girlfriend, I will try to accomplish that buy simple using the grain bill from the first running of a Mexican beer ....that ought to do it.

This one just boggles my mind, on the can 3%ABV, 26 calories.

Flavor profile can best be described as very watery water, with minor corn flavor up font, slight bitter camp fire urine with corn after taste.

can consumed down in mexico

Fizzy yellow color with a thin layering of white head. Clear and plain, as you might expect.

Some grainy scents along with grass and corn. Fairly devoid of character.

Grainy and corny flavors with some faint cereal hints. Tossing a lime in might help out, but this one is super watery, even by light adjunct standards.

Lighter body, higher carbonation, crisp and unpleasantly bitter on the tongue. Eh - the Modelo Group can do better than this. I'd probably take a Tecate over this, although that's not saying much.

Pacifico Light as in most Mexican beers taste best in the summer with a lime...however, judging Pacifico sin limon...its just another no frills cerveza! The beer poors golden clear with good carbonation that give a white foamy head for a brief time. The smell and taste are enhanced with grain. The hops help somewhat with the taste so that it is not bread water. Mouthfeel is easy especially on hot days...enjoy!

I am pretty sure this beer is brewed with the exact same infamous Mexican drinking water. This is as skunky as a beer I've ever had. I tried one at the local cantina here and I took two swigs before I threw it away. Worst $3.50 I've ever spent. There are no redeeming qualities to this beer. Why this beer is manufactured I do not know.

Its a mexi beer, so that pretty much says it all. I've drank from the bottle, love how in Mexico they put a tiny littel key lime on the top.

When your in Mexi its great with the little key limes they put on top, but I wouldn't drink it anywhere else.

I like it better than Corona.

The newest beer of Grupo Modelo, unfortunately a light beer.

A: Pale yellow, without foam, nothing to note;

S: Is orange soda or light beer?, at least do not suck

T: No taste, just mineral water, little grains and extreme carbonation;

M: Fuzzy;

D: A clear example of how an excellent beer (pacifico) can degenerate on a bad beer.
