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).

(This Pacifico Clara was from a bottle bought at Trader Joes rather than a tap.) I expect any Pilsner to be crisp and refreshing, but this example was immediately harsh and metallic. To be fair, the Pilsner style is more suseptible to "going bad" so a more fair test would include more samples from different sources.

Light straw golden color, I piss darker than this. Extremely clarified and filtered and then clarified again. Only the head, which is initially presently, saves this from being a 1.

Has a ricey, grainy smell. Not sure anything else is present.

Simply awful. Tastes like dirty dish water.

It's sour, not even bitter, from the time it touches your lips til your stomach screams in horror at what's entering. There is a flowery feel to it, but that's it.

Just dreadful. Not sure I'm going to finish the whole thing. I feel for Mexicans that havce to drink the crap.

This is a rough cerveza to take. It is a very light pale straw and has no head retention at all. The smell is notably citrus in nature but smells completely off. The taste is light, bland and sour. A not completely painful mouthfeel, but way too thin. This is a drain flush for me at worst and chokable at best.

Probably a bit better than Corona, but that doesn't say much at all, no real character whatsoever, but easy to drink.

It tastes like a mixture of horse cum and gasoline but is quite earthy. No floral or tropical aromas other than the lime that instantaneously went rotten the moment it touched the beer. Mexican piss water would be an upgrade to this concoction. Shame on myself for paying actual currency for this.

Very light gold color, medium white foamy head. Aroma is grassy and sweet. A light tasting lager, very light malts, prevalent lemony flavor, not very appealing. Mouthfeel is kind of thin. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is lemony and neutral. Not a very good beer.
