Corona is a popular beer product mainly due to its heavy advertising with its catchy tropical theme. The beer itself is typical of what one would expect in a mass- produced lager: light, yellow/straw color, wide availability, and heavily marketed. Other qualities that are associated with Corona Extra are certainly nothing to brag about. Its aroma is skunky with a little dash of corn and adjuncts. The flavor of Corona is grainy and sweet, with a taste that is bland and begs to have something added. Of course, it is common to add a lime wedge to a bottle of Corona but what this beer needs is something much greater- something that will make it at least taste like a semi- respectable beer product.
The watery body and overall weakness make this beer a popular choice on a hot summer day. Personally, I can think of at least 100 better choices for warm weather brew. It is amazing how the management team at Grupo Modelo have successfully convinced the public that this skunk- enhanced beer is something special. Other than the ads and the sophisticated- looking bottle, there is really nothing to cheer about with Corona Extra. Mexico makes much better beer than this.
