Pacifico Clara, a Pale Lager by Grupo Modelo

I am not a fan of pale lagers—American, Mexican, or otherwise. However, I was at a social gathering, and, against better judgment, decided to indulge in such a beverage.

I have to say that I was mildly surprised that Pacifico was better than I expected. I wouldn't seek it out, but I could have another one if it was the only drink of choice at a party. It lacked the skunkiness and over-the-top, off-kilter perfume (or, perhaps, rotting floral bouquet) of Budweiser, Miller, Corona, and their ilk.

This is one of those beers that would also serve the purpose of thirst quencher after mowing the lawn—along with a snack of chips and salsa.
