I've had Corona several times before, but I decided to try a little experiment. I work at a store that sells it and I wanted to buy a bomber out of a freshly opened box. Most of the Corona I've had has been light struck pretty badly, so I thought maybe the beer would be slightly better if I had been exposed to minimal light.
Appearance: Poured a golden yellow with about 1/2 a fingers worth of head. The head dissipates rapidly and leaves almost nothing behind, no lacing to speak of.
Smell: I have to nearly stick my nose into the beer to get a faint grain smell.
Taste: Not much here. The smallest inkling of hop bite towards the end. Still a little bit of that Corona skunk in there as well.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated and as thin as water.
Drinkability: I can put about a 6'er of these back and just catch a buzz. It does go down pretty easy, like carbonated water.
In closing this bottle was actually slightly better than most of my experiences with Corona. It was definitely less skunked. But for the price there are a myriad of better options out there.
Serving type: bottle
