I'd somehow avoided drinking one of these until last Friday night when it was all that was in the green room at a work event. Just the worst. I couldn't even finish the can.

Didn't know whether to rate with or without lime, but then I realized that it really didn't matter.

From notes/memory: Pale as wee, smells faintly of wee, tastes like west Texas water that has not been processed through a reverse osmosis system, mouthfeel of water.

My favorite everyday beer. It's got a lot of flavor for a lighter beer. It's refreshing, has a clean after-taste, and is not as watered down as other American Lagers.

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.
