This is the best of the Mexican beers. Light and refreshing with a wonderful taste. We are not talking sitting in a cold place analyzing the properties and elements of the brew. We are talking sitting on the beach in the warm tropics quenching your thirst with a beer that goes down nice and easy. Don't get me wrong I love my ales but sitting on the beach in Wainha, kicking it in the warm breeze listening to the ocean nothing, I say nothing taste better than a six pack of Pacifico.

Really light golden color with lots of bubbles, didn't make much of a head tho.

Smell is mostly corn,malty sweetness and some mineral/metal .

Taste starts off sweet but finishes dry with a little burn from all the carbonation, very little hops flavor.

Feel is a little watery and definitely thin .

Overall I would rather have corona familiar or modelo especial if I'm having a Mexican beer.. Probably wont buy it again .

Pacifico used to be an excellent Mexican version of a German lager, as it was Germans who started the Mexican beer industry. But it's been taken over by a giant conglomerate and they've dumbed-down the taste to light beer territory. Thin, watery... it's a shame.

Pacifico Cerveza Clara | Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, the head on this beer is 1/2 finger thick, with spotty lacing, and a clear straw gold body.

I smell bright, earthy/grassy grains alongside easier-going malts.

Tastes like a slightly rich, yet very refreshing blend of the smell. Perhaps a tab bit of apple mid-palate?

Mouthfeel is medium-light with fair carbonation.

Overall, I'l give Pacifico Cerveza Clara | Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. a rating of a solid 4. Light, refreshing, with enjoyable taste.

Pours golden color with even streams of carbonation forming a nice thin head. Appealing. Very malty, grainy, smell with some grass notes. Not complex but sure gets the appetite going. Tastes very watered down unfortunately. The taste does not match the smell. Incredibly smooth feel with just the right carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing. Definitely not the beer you want for sophistication but on a hot day this beer does just fine.

This is a below average Lager, The taste is bland and unmemorable, as with all Mexican beers that I have tried, there is nothing special here.
