Pacifico

Family Pale Lager Style North American Lager
Country Mexico ABV 4.4%
Producer Grupo Modelo
Price $$ Packaging 12oz/355ml, 24oz/710ml bottle
Characteristics Refreshing

Overview For the last 50 years, Pacifico has been brewed by Grupo Modelo, but a century ago it took its name from the ocean on which its hometown of Mazatlán—where it remains über popular—is located. It’s the pride and joy of Sinaloa.

Flavors and aromas There was evidence that this beer was lightstruck, which speaks rather poorly to its provenance given that it’s packaged in brown glass. There are also lemony noble hop flavors, nice bitterness, and a tinge of bitterness, leading to a soft, refreshing finish.
