Pacifico Light as in most Mexican beers taste best in the summer with a lime...however, judging Pacifico sin limon...its just another no frills cerveza! The beer poors golden clear with good carbonation that give a white foamy head for a brief time. The smell and taste are enhanced with grain. The hops help somewhat with the taste so that it is not bread water. Mouthfeel is easy especially on hot days...enjoy!

Not much flavor in this one. Super clear with a little bitter bite. Similar to a coors light, but less flavor. I don’t think I ever got a buzz and realized it is only 3% ABV! Nonetheless, a crisp Mexican lager and not a bad thirst quencher while getting a tan and watching the beach rovers..

The newest beer of Grupo Modelo, unfortunately a light beer.

A: Pale yellow, without foam, nothing to note;

S: Is orange soda or light beer?, at least do not suck

T: No taste, just mineral water, little grains and extreme carbonation;

M: Fuzzy;

D: A clear example of how an excellent beer (pacifico) can degenerate on a bad beer.

I am pretty sure this beer is brewed with the exact same infamous Mexican drinking water. This is as skunky as a beer I've ever had. I tried one at the local cantina here and I took two swigs before I threw it away. Worst $3.50 I've ever spent. There are no redeeming qualities to this beer. Why this beer is manufactured I do not know.

A friend from work brought some of these to the States from Mexico, and gave me a couple. He wanted to see if I could brew up some of these for him and his girlfriend, I will try to accomplish that buy simple using the grain bill from the first running of a Mexican beer ....that ought to do it.

This one just boggles my mind, on the can 3%ABV, 26 calories.

Flavor profile can best be described as very watery water, with minor corn flavor up font, slight bitter camp fire urine with corn after taste.

Very watered down, even more than you'd expect for a light beer. I like the Clara a lot more than a traditional Mexican lager, but unfortunately the light one has much less flavor than Clara or even other light beers! Not bad on the beach, but I'd take a Corona or others over this.
