A light, fuzzy, mild flavored beer.
If the bottle isn't properly stored it can get a foul smell, otherwise it ain't got a lot of smell.
the taste is not strong, refreshing as a beverage but not as enjoyable as a beer.

Quick review. Bright & light with mild maltiness. Mild everything, really. Despite lacking in terms of depth of flavor, I love how crisp & refreshing a nice cold Corona can be.

Looks tasty and golden. But the bottle being clear messes up the taste and smell. It smells like a skunk and it tastes like one. Only redeemable with a lime.

If you drink Dos Equis and then pee, your piss would probably taste exactly like Corona Extra, any questions? I didn't think so

Only g̶o̶o̶d̶ *drinkable* with a lime
Clear bottle makes the beer skunk fast in the sun (beach is where majority are consumed)

This beer is good in one way and one way only. It has to be 90+ out, super sunny day, sitting near water (beach, pool, river, lake, etc.), the beer must be ice cold, and you have to have a lime wedge shoved into the bottle. No glass. Must be from the bottle. In a moment such as this one though, it is a very refreshing beverage to have.

Would purchase again, but ONLY in this scenario.

Any beer that requires a lime wedge or salt added to it (or anything else for that matter) isn't worth the time. If a tall corn stalk could take a piss, it would smell and taste like Corona.

Great beer. Very refreshing on a warm day. Salt and limes are necessary

From the bottle with a lime (traditional, right). What's to say about the Look - it's light golden. Smell is citrusy on a hot day at the beach, the only place I drink it, and the taste is smooth and refreshing with the lime. Smooth - medium bodied with a pleasant taste. Overall best for a hot day at the beach.

This is overpriced crap. The only way I can enjoy one of these is when it's ice cold and with a lime wedge, which covers up the bad flavor. Tastes like urine when served normally. This has no business being as expensive as it is. I'd rather drink Keystone Light than this overrated swill.

A: Crystal Clear

S: Skunky skunk-a-rama. Also, corn. And more skunk

T: Better be ice cold with lots of lime. Otherwise - yikes.

M: Carbonated and water like

O: If it is hot, you're on a beach, and someone is giving this away, go for it. If it is any other scenario, why are you drinking it?

You know, on a nice summer day outside on the beach I just like to have a corona

look: 1.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Clear straw color. Barely no head, lasting 30 seconds. Average legs and activity.

Faint sweet aromas and flavors of corn, syrup, citrus, slightly skunky and metallic.

Light body with prickly carbonation. Short and weak smoky finish.

Overall : Faint flavors but good freshness. The sugar is good and does not feel artificial like most macro brands.
