2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2004 Pacifico is golden yellow in appearance. This cerveza poured into my glass with almost no head, all of which was dissipated within ten seconds, a constant stream of tiny bubbles were always present. The aroma was of sparkling apple cider, lots of carbonation otherwise no distinctive scent present.
This beer had no distinctive flavor. The most noticeable sensation on my tongue was a slight acidic sting, as if citric acid were present from a lime. Sitting on my tongue the beer felt extremely dry, almost like sparkling cider. The finish was very dull, almost water dull. Better than corona but bad by any other standard.
Overall a decent Mexican beer, boring compared many others. I'd recommend Pacifico over its more popular counterpart Corona. Pacifico has a similar feel to Corona, without tasting as cheap. Call it a session beer, although I'll only buy it again if it's on sale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden with a litle fast discipating head. Few but constant bubble stream from the bottom of the glass. Slightly hoppy nose with a tab of alcohol to it. Slight water flavor with some bitter and hops. Very light bodied and smooth. Needs a lime.

When I drink this stuff, it reminds me of California. Not like I've ever been there but I imagine standing on the beach with a cooler full of these by my side. Good with enchiladas.

I like this beer. Not because it's a classic or a great beer. It just goes nice with a mexican meal. Very drinkable, just don't brag to your friends that you drink this stuff.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Very non-threatening, much like the glass of water I had with it. I guess you could say it went well with the spicy burrito. Then again, I wouldn't have wanted to waste a good beer.....

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Some aroma of hops. Appearance is a very light yellow. Not much flavor, use a lime. Thin on the palate. Light, went well with the Mexican food.

A nice beer to kick back on a nice day with. As far as Mexican imports, it is the elite. PLUS, the label makes me think "pirates" for some reason!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This brew poured a small head of white quickly disappearing bubbles that left a light orange colored body behind. Its aroma is mild with hoppy notes. The mouthfeel is initially hoppy with the typical hop bite and a mild hop finish while it is smooth inbetween.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma light and malty. Flavor is lightly sweet and the finish it crisp and dry. Nothing bad, just not much there.
