2.55/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

I've been collecting bottle caps recently, and I found myself wanted a blue one, so I picked up a Corona out of the bargain bin. I'll forgo the Lime this time.

Appearance: Poured with a thumb of head that surprisingly retained but did not lace at all. The body is a very pale but crystal clear brass color with solid signs of carbonation.

Smell: Certainly has a skunky slightly acidic smell to it, with an almost sandy background. I also am catching a dried grass and generic grain smell. Charming it is not, as the words good enough come to mind.

Taste: Watered down, simply put as it starts with a light sweet corn and weak malt and turns to a bit of a dried grass kind of flavor. It's not offensive, but it certainly isn't good. I'm honestly not sure if this would taste better is it wasn't so watered down.

Mouthfeel: Well it leaves a bit of a sweet corn aftertaste, and the carbonation was fairly smooth, however the beer is very moist and watered down in the extreme. Slight acidic notes to the experience as well.

Drinkability: This beer is a thirst quencher, simply put as it had better be given how watered down it is. The acidic note would certainly cause me some stomach issues over time, but no problems with gas or getting it down. This beer is only for the summer though, simply put.

Final Thoughts: As the top selling import in the world, Corona is a testament to the power of marketing. A squirt of lime would give this beer some flavor, and help it's case but on it's own, it's really only appropriate for dousing ridiculously hot Mexican food, or having one after sweating on a beach at some resort. Frankly, if you put it next to a light lager, I would be hard pressed to tell the difference.
