my personal favorite of all the cheap mass produced mexican lagers, and maybe the only beer in the world ill take with fruit. the worst part of this one for me is the smell, which is kind of a pale malty metallic resonance, just not very nice at all. the citric notes from a fresh lime in it can only save the nose to a very small degree for me. the taste is much better, very light and refreshing, but sort of hollow in taste. light malts is really it, no hops or yeast or anything of note. again, a bit of lime picks this one up to decent, and helps cut through the spice of a burrito or some spicy nachos. feel is the best part, light in body and good carbonation, good drinkablilty as a thirst quencher. overall not brutal by any means.

Poured into a mug.

Pacifico, a name synonymous with light, watery yellow. Smelled tinny and skunked. A touch of grain and corn on the taste, but the mug this brew was poured into was mercifully cold, taking the edge off the skunkiness. Watery mouthfeel.

I hate to be this brusque with a review, but there really isn't anything in here that you haven't had if you've had a Bud, Corona, High Life, etc. Little flavor and no reason to recommend it over those or anything else.

Appearance - Pours a pale, clear yellow with a finger width head which dissipates quickly, leaving behind a thin lace.

Smell - Faint aromas of grain.

Taste - Tastes of grain; corn and barley. Slightly sweet, followed by a slightly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied. Good carbonation leads to a nice, crisp bite.

Overall - There's nothing offensive about this beer... there's also nothing great. It's drinkable, but not necessarily enjoyable.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear pale gold with a fizzy one finger head.

Smells of sweet corn and rubber. Also a hint of lemon.

The flavor is a little better but not much. Somewhat astringent from the get go and very adjunct tasting. Some corn and bread along with a citric tartness but that odd bitterness lingers throughout.

This is really not a good beer. I would probably take Corona over this.
