There are a million worse beers and a million better beers. Outstandingly marketed so that you think you should buy it if you're going to the beach. Decent with the fruit wedge, lousy alone.

This is the Mexicans version of "fosters" no one drinks it in its country of origin and for good reason.
tastes like camel urine and isn't what id want for a sustain-er or even a quick beer to cool me off.

Poured into a pilsner glass. In the past 5 months I have had Chimay Red, Rochefort 6, 8 and 10, Westvleteren XII, Three Philosophers, KBS, BBA Narwhal, Heady Topper, 120 Minute IPA and bunch of other world class brews. That said, this is actually not that bad, but also not that good either. It's a bit watery, but still has a little malt flavor. Sort of grainy and sweet. Really bubbly on the tongue. Actually looks pretty nice in a glass. I understand why this is a popular summer beer. Nothing offensive here, just nothing to write home about. I've definitely had worse.

If you put Lemon in your beer, that means you don't want it to be tasted but drank for refreshing your palate during the summer. Lemon kills the taste all the other feelings you can get.

It's pretty ok... Nothing fancy! Much better with the lemon wedge.

What more can be said about Corona... great marketing and a terrible product. This is skunk in a bottle, and there's not enough lime in the world to fix this beer. Macro corn, watery, yellow and fizzy, and did I mention skunk? Not worthy of being called beer. It's only virtue is being cheap and safer than drinking the water while in Mexico... and that just barely.

It might be more nostalgia than anything else, but I like corona in the summer. It's a great summer beer and brings back great memories.

Has a bit of a floral smell. Other than that, nothing special.

I had this at a club once so my memory might be affected a little.

A - Typical lager colour, it might be a bit lighter but maybe that's just me. Head was nothing to note, standard for a macro brewing company.

S - Nothing too special here either, just smells like... well... a lager, maybe a little more skunky than the average macro. Not any notes of anything special that I could detect. The smell fine and not anything to get hung up about.

T - Very mild in my opinion, very lacking in flavour. Basically just pseudo-average, I would serve this very cold and down a lot of them since it is incredibly easy to drink. If there is nothing else better around and you wanna get drunk fast... down a few of these.

Poured out of a can. Blech, this is pretty bad. Tastes like steel wool, creamed corn, and whippits. I actually enjoy Corona when skunked, pero eso, es no bueno. A crash course on why lime was ever squeezed into a beer.

Can't find anything wrong with the visuals or feel though (when judging by style).

Great if you want to feel like you're on a beach. Easy to drink and feels like sand in your toes and the sun on your skin.

Corona is best when mixed with bottom shelf vanilla vodka.

It's something I'll drink when handed to me for free on May 5th, and that's about it.

With lime. The lime takes the skunkiness out of the smell and taste, but still a really bad brew.

Served in a frosted mug. Very pale. Slight aroma. Slight off flavor. Nice mouth feel.

Not much to honestly say about corona. I gave the smell it a low score due to it lack of smell. To me it tastes like budweiser and budlight. Corona will always be one of my go to beers though.

One of the worst tasting beers I have ever tried. No idea what the appeal of this beer is. To each his own I guess.

Don't really like beer that tastes like water
