Notes / Commercial Description:
Cerveza Pacífico Clara, better known as Pacífico, is a Mexican pilsner-style beer. It was first brewed in 1900 when three Germans opened a brewery, the Cerveceria del Pacífico in Mazatlán. Cerveza Pacifico is named so because the Pacifico brewery is located in the Pacific Ocean port city of Mazatlán, in the state of Sinaloa, México. Its label includes a picture depicting a lifesaver encompassing a hill with the port's lighthouse, known locally as "Cerro del Crestón." In Mazatlán, the beer is available in three different size bottles: "cuartitos" (6 fl. oz), "medias" (12 fl. oz.), and "ballenas" (32 fl. oz.). "Clara" means clear, as opposed to "obscura" (dark).

Pours a clear yellow/gold color. A dense white head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma of grain and grassy hops.
Ditto taste, just not as much as the aroma suggested.
Crisp and refreshing. Went well with my potato taco.

Looks like a Mexican lager... smells like a Mexican lager... a slice of lime goes a long way with both smell and taste. Taste is clean and light. Feels refreshing. Overall it’s mexican beer at its best, light blonde refreshing small amount of,the grains come through. Perfect with tacos or seafood. Always bring a case camping in the summer with a baggie of limes

24 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 3/20/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair mount of streaming carbonation. Good appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness of pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop flavors; with a solid malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Some fruity corn aromas/flavors, but not overwhelming. Touch of an odd metallic flavor note near the end of the can. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Very clean on lager flavors, with no yeast notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very solid pale adjunct lager style. All around good robustness of pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink; with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very flavorful for the ABV. Clean pils malt/grains, and solid earthy hop presence/balance. Nice barely presence, and not overdone on adjuncts. An enjoyable offering. Middle of the pack on score for the macros I've had.

First, what is it? Is it an IPA? Of course not and so it should not be compared to one. Mexican beer at it's best. Clean. In a brown bottle to avoid the spoilage that plagues Corona. Crisp. Refreshing. A beer from a hot climate that is perfect for hot weather.

Lots of hate on this beer but I think it’s refreshing and better than other Mexican beers like Corona. Not an amazing experience but it does go well with Mexican food and seafood.
