Cerveza Pacifico ClaraCerveza Pacifico Clara
Notes: 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).

Clear, light golden beer. Active carbonation. Big fluffy head that does not stick around for long.

Neutral aroma. Very mild. Not much there. Some bread.

Smooth. Mild sweetness. Somewhat malty.
More bitterness than is typical for this style of beer. Bitterness lingers on the palate. A little bit lemony. A touch of adjunct corn flavor.

Body is on the border of light and medium. Satisfying. Chuggable but not thin.

I've been drinking a lot of this beer lately. It is very good. But overpriced. The quality is better than most other Mexican adjunct lagers. Quality is way above American adjunct lagers. Ice cold it is a smooth, enjoyable, flavorful lager to down in hot weather. A lot better than most of the competition. The balance is spot on. Tastes like beer, not corn / rice juice. Better than Corona or Budweiser. I like it more than Heineken. A very solid choice for lager.

Clara looks clear and clean. Decent thick head. Smells decent for being very light. No strong flavors and on the light side. Easy drinking enough you could make a session beer out of it until you’re ready for a stronger brew. It’s good enough. I’d buy it, I guess.

My favorite hot summer day beer. Crisp, light, sessionable. Not a world class beer, but as far as mass produced goes...not many other beers come to mind for refreshing and accessible.

One of my favorite Mexican beers. Very refreshing to drink at the beach. In my opinion way better than Corona and Modelo.

Clear light gold appearance with a fairly large white head and modest lacing. Cooked corn aroma that goes downhill as it warms. Not many ways to describe the bland taste, other than that I did not have to spit it out. Light bodied, lively carbonated mouthfeel. Going to try again? Doubtful.

12oz brown bottle. Neck of bottle is stamped 'BB AUG 2023'.
Clear, pale gold colored body. One finger of white head. Leaves behind scattered strings of lacing.
Aroma of grain malts, and a touch of floral hops.
Taste is sweet malt, with a toasted white bread note. Has a spice note, along with floral hops. Sweet malt in the aftertaste.
Thinner mouth feel. Good carbonation.
Crisp and clean lager experience. Made to allow for several beers to be imbibed in a session. Smells and tastes like a malt beverage but does not go to any extremes.

Pours out of the can a crystal clear bright gold-orange with minimal head. Smells like straw and faint malt. Taste is non offensive and actually pretty crisp and refreshing. Low bitterness and easy drinking.

Poured from a can into a glass. Pale, very transparent with not a lot of carbonation. Smells of gains, corn and aluminum. Taste is softly sweet, but not much to find. I have tried this in the Pacific side of the Mexican beach before and it tasted much better than in the city, maybe cuz of the weather

Look: In bottle, did not pour

Smell: Smells like the most basic lager, better smell than Bud Light but not much better

Taste: Not bad. Better than Corona without a lime bud worse than Corona with a lime, even if you add a lime to Pacifico

Feel: Water

Overall: Decent beer

A typical larger. Nothing special but not bad. I think it will be good for party where your friends only drink lite and find it the BEST(ridiculous).
Look: clean, golden color with very little foam (I have never seen beer with that little foam before).
Smell: a little malty, can't get much out of it.
Taste: Without any complicated flavor. It's very plain, watery, and a tiny touch of bitterness. And it finishes up with a tiny bit of malty flavor, which I find it hard to describe.

I dug this relatively well, it essentially tasted like Modelo which isn't shocking considering...ya know...made by Modelo. Overall one of the more enjoyable Mexican beers I've had. People rate macros way too critically. It will never have the same standard as craft beer so don't expect it to
