Pours pale clear golden color with lots of foam that dissipates quickly.
Not much smell or taste -- faint hint of citrus and grain, with a slight grassy finish. Lots of carbonation. Not much taste. Comparing to Corona, I'd say this is cleaner without the skunk. Overall, not much flavor and forgettable, but not terrible either.

The smell is much stronger than the flavor. Smells heavily of corn and vegetables, and almost sickly sweet.

It tastes like almost nothing at all. What flavor there is isn't particularly great either. It's like someone watered down a Heineken (not that I dislike Heineken).

The longer I let it warm up the more I realize this beer is really just a mess. A lot of strange and unpleasant flavors come out the warmer it gets, ranging from rotten vegetables to piss.

This is certainly the worst Mexican beer I've had. If this was the only beer available I'd... probably still drink it. I'd just drink it as cold and as fast as possible.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Straw color with white head; small bubbles which dissipated quickly and left the surface bland. Not much smell- not much taste either. But, I like the feel of the beer, and of course it goes well with spicy Mexican or Indian food. But here's the main thing: the label. Pacifico Clara has the most beautiful label; it just makes you want to buy the sh$t. I froze another pint glass and poured number two; it really helps.

Overall an ok beer. Taste like a Mexican version of Budweiser.
