Ohhhh myyy....Corona. I remember back in the mid-to-late 80's, when this trendsetter beer really hit it's marketing stride. Frat boys everywhere would slop down gallons of the stuff while posing at the bar with the snappy, sexy-looking bottle. I myself will admit to knocking back a few of these once in a while, but even then, the skunky and acidic flavor always put me off.
Anyway, I was recently doing some housechores for some friends, watering the plants and feeding the cats while they were on vacation. They said I could help myself to anything in the fridge, but all I could find in there to drink was the dreaded Corona. I figured that I'd give it a try again after all these years, even though I still had my misgivings. All it did was bring back some nostalgic memories. The beer itself still sucked just as bad as it did back in the day.
Terrible looking on the pour. The nose was all sulphur and acid, pure skunk. Weak head, pale straw in color, very clear.
The taste was just overwhelmed by the skunk profile. The clear bottles do nothing for this beer in terms of the taste, although I stringly suspect that the skunk is an integral part of the flavor profile for a lot of people. Nothing else really comes through. Not much in the way of hops, no real malt presence to speak of.
Average mouthfeel. Not drinkable at all. People will almost always drop a lime or three in this beer to offset the acidic nature of the beast. That kinda works. I highly recommend that tactic if you're ever stuck drinking this overpriced, overhyped turkey. Next time I housesit, I'm leaving the fridge alone.
