2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 One of the best Mexican beers I’ve ever had. Great labeling, great taste, like everything about it. I don’t know what it is about this beer, everything about it screams "crappy beer, just forget about it" but I just can’t seem to dislike pacifico. I will certainly attempt to figure this out.

The proper pronunciation comes from Lorenzo Fortunato who always called this "pacheapeeko". Really not as bad as it's been made out to be by some. Certainly not great either. Tastes good when free.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light head, light in color. Not a ton of aroma. I just can't get past that fresh cut lawn flavor.

Bottle (sampled: Teotihuacan, Mexico 26.2.04)
Pale golden color and white head. Not much aroma. Some malts and lightly bitter finish. Decent Mexican lager.

A light amber beer with no head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of black currants. The flavor is malty and the hops prickles the tongue. The palate is thin.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2004 Had a 12oz bottle today in Algodones, Baja Cal. with chiles rellenos. Didn't smell as bad as most of the USA mainstream beers. Tasted less disagreeable too. I think the Mexican beers are better than the BMC offerings. Not much of an endorcement there.

A average beer. However better than most Mexican beers. No head, classic golden coloured.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
12 oz bottle. Nice label. Pale, not-quite yellow, clear, little fizzy head. Smells like corn. Struggling to find anything to say. Why should I make the effort? What good will it possibly do you, gentle reader, for me to make an enormous effort to find something meaninful to say about the nasty plasticoated tin flavors at the end and the watery body? Does Grupo Modelo care what I think? Well?

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pure yellow with white head that is thin and goes quick. barely any aroma, grassy? grain flavor, on the raw side? can't really tell due to weak flavor, but I think that's the intent. went well with pizza

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had one of these while enjoying my lunch at Chile Verde in Dublin. Anyone wanting great mexican in central Ohio need not look any further than this little best kept. Very faint
nose of a grassy field with a hint of wheaty perfume. The brew is a light bubbly golden straw. The average frothy white head is fully diminishing with no lacing. The neutral flavor only hints at hop spice. The body is light and watery and the finish feels crisp. Not my brew of choice but got the job done in this setting.
