This one's an excellent alternative to Corona should you need one. Hardly even needs a lime if you ask me. Absolutely one of my go to summer beers for hitting the lake.

This is probably my go-to Mexican beer...so when cinco de mayo came around this year, i picked up a 6-er. It's got a fuller taste to it than Budweiser or some other American lagers. But, alas, it's still a mass produced lager..that tastes ok with a lime stuck in it

Like the dry mouthfeel, as it's noticeably different from some of my favorite Mexican beers, like Estrella Jalisco and Modelo, but it's also a surprisingly harsh beer. Not easy to finish the 24oz can I had and was admittedly difficult to grab another beer afterwards.

This may not be the best craft beer, or even a craft beer. But where it shines is in everyday drinkability. All cervezas look and smell similar. The taste of this is what sets it apart from the Corona drinkers of the world. You are not missing much by skipping over this beer but it would be good for a themed party. Rests easy in the tummy.

24 ounce can poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a clear straw color with a dull white head, no retention or lacing, looks really thin and light.

A: Sweet corn, slight grassy note, not much else, very bland.

T: Like the nose, lots of corn, slight lemon, grassy note, there's a strange metal taste in the finish.

M: Light bodied, low carbonation.

O: Not a big fan of adjunct lagers and this one fits right in the category, low on every aspect, I'd only drink this again if I on a hot summer day but there are better beers for southern CA summers.

This is an adjunct lager, so you kind of know what you are getting into but this is the best of this style I have had. Not so much corn flavor, and very refreshing.

I can't really say much about this lager. It's not bad, but are any adjunct lagers ever really bad? They tend to be bland, and Pacifico fits snuggly into that description. The head dissipated fairly quickly although I did like it's colour, which was a darck yellow that bordered on amber. It doesn't have much of a distinctive nose, and it's slightly sweet on the tongue. There is abosolutely nothing memorable about the mouth feel. Like many adjuncts (I feel as if I'm profiling) it's okay, but not very daring, which I suppose is its purpose. While I might find a beer like Wild Heavan's Funkenbach awful, at least it's attempting something.

I have had Pacifico at several times, but last night I had one of the best Pacifico beers I have ever tasted. The reason is quite simple - it was ice cold served with a bit of ice on top from the mug being so cold. Of course, the beer itself was refreshing, however with little taste. To say the look is golden is an overstatement, but that is certainly in its purvey of possibilities! Light, refreshing beer that paris with spicy food or hot summer days.
