In celebration of the first sunny day here in Utah for a really long time, i thought I'd bust out a summer classic.
Before I continue, I have to say that an ice cold corona with street tacos in Cabo San Lucas is a pretty appealing proposition. Maybe it's because of the location, or maybe it's because this is a fairly refreshing offering when chilled to the max, I can't say. I have been known to drink these, and even enjoy them. However, this review will be based upon how this beer fares when compared to its contemporaries.
A - Color of dead grass. The head disappears in a matter of seconds leaving behind no lacing. The result is what looks like watery, carbonated apple juice. Actually, apple juice is probably darker in color.
S - Corona always had its own scent. Let's call it the Coronaroma. There was alwasy too much of a vegetal quality to it for my liking. A whiff of skunkiness, metallic, and dusty corn husks, and you've pretty much covered the bases.
T - Dusty corn, grain, slight metallic. Carbonation. This beer just tastes cheap. That's the bottom line.
M - The mouthfeel is awfully watery and thin. There's also aggressive carbonation that accentuates the thin feeling.
D - On a hot summer day, while you're laying on the beach eating street food in an exotic Caribbean destination, a corona is called for. Other than that, look around.

I haven't had this beer for a while but thanks to Trader Joe's surprise pack I was welcomed with one of these!
A-The bottle is pretty cool but the color is a turnoff.
S-Smells like skunk and pee.
T-Tastes like it smells
M-Weak and just gross.
O-This beer is just as bad as I remembered. I would not suggest it. EVER!
