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).

Lots of hate on this beer but I think it’s refreshing and better than other Mexican beers like Corona. Not an amazing experience but it does go well with Mexican food and seafood.

Unremarkable offering that isn't bad and probably better than most Mexican beers.

Refreshing, especially with a lime. No bad aftertaste, like Corona. Mexican beer at its best.

Pours out a medium yellow straw color. Head is white and fizzles away instantly. No lacing at all.
Not much in the nose. Faint grains, corn sweetness, and some pennies.
Taste is very neutral. Grains and mineral water is all I can say. Nothing really offensive although really nothing.
Mouthfeel is light with a tingling high carbonation. Works for the style.

Appearance - The beer poured straw yellow with a white head.

Smell - The beer has a light lagee yeast smell with hints of youthful indiscretion.

Taste - When cold, the beer has a crisp lager yeast presence with adjunct grains. With a lime wedge, the beer pops a little more.

Mouthfeel - A thin feel is coupled by a higher level of carbonation.

Overall - This is not nearly as offensive as some American adjunct lagers.

I must admit I have a soft spot in my heart for this beer....it's all I drink when I'm in Cabo on fishing trips.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a fair amount of effervescent head that quickly disappears

Smell is lightly sweet, with a slight herbal/floral character

Taste is light biscuit, with very little hop, however just enough to add an astringency which evokes citrus.

Above average carbonation, fairly crisp and dry. Leaves you wanting another.

Very good for what it is....a beach beer. Well crafted in the sense that it's designed to complement salty/lime foods. Perfect for some fish tacos, guacamole, and lime.

Pours a nearly crystal-clear straw with a finger of white foam that dissipates quite quickly. Aroma is dank and herbal hops, biscuit and toast malts, with a sucker punch of dry, white rice behind. Flavor profile is herbal, dank, and citrus hops, with biscuit and toasted malts behind. Dank and herbal are the emphasis out of the hop range. Mouth feel is crisp and refreshing with a thin, delicate body. Overall, a smasher of a Mexican lager.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.
