1.13/5  rDev -50.9%

After being coaxed by family to have another one of these, I decided I had no choice but to grab some lime slices (not just one, but several), put this in the freezer, and serve into a frosted pilsener glass; I've come to the conclusion that, in this state, it's palatable, but not good. My review still stands, because no beer by design should require the addition of lime (or any fruit) to make it drinkable.

---

I'm giving this bad boy (emphasis on bad) a re-review, because A) I kind of wonder if this really IS as terrible as I keep saying it is, and B) I want to save my Troegenator Doublebock (that I originally planned on having) for a better night where I'm not in such a sour mood. Poured into a frosted beer mug, and served ice cold.

A: Pours a crystal-clear, straw colored body (yes, it looks like urine), along with a laughable head that fades away into nothing. There actually is a little lacing, though.

S: Smells like pure DMS (that's dimethyl sulfides to you and me). You know that sulfury, cooked vegetable aroma? That's it. And it's kinda strong too. On the plus side, skunk is low (the fact that the skunk is low - rather than nonexistent - is the best thing about the beer's smell tells you everything).

T: Oh yeah, this is as bad as I remember. No, wait - it's worse! The sulfur and cooked corn on the nose comes out swinging even harder in the mouth, and the skunk increases five fold. The front is rancid malt, and the aftertaste is horrid. To date, this is the only beer I've ever contemplated drain pouring - and in the correct context, I would do it without hesitation, too.

M: The one semi-good thing about this beer. Carbonation is high, borderline too high, but not quite oppressive. If it didn't have such a shitty flavor and slimy aftertaste, it would go down super easy.

O: I can't think of anything this beer does right. It honest-to-God makes BMC look brilliant. All I'm gonna say is, I could have had a Troegenator Doublebock instead, and I'm angry that I didn't listen to common sense. On the plus side, cathartic reviews like this do wonders for the soul.

PS: For the good of beerdom, just drink water instead. If you want a buzz, get some cheap whiskey, or if you absolutely MUST have a beer, some Miller High Life. In fact, I surmise a punch in the face would be more satisfying than Corona.

Anyone who doesn't like this beer is just a hater because of the hype. The beer is light and is very refreshing. Nobody ever says "nah man i don't like Corona"... that sentence should be followed by a slap to the face because they are clearly lying to your face.

Classic Beer. Pop one of these open at the beach and you'll surely enjoy yourself. If you're feeling extra adventurous, stick a lime slice in it and you'll have a great time. This is very refreshing and you'll get to taste a little bit of Mexico!

Nebraska

2.19/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Light gold and bubbly

Smell: skunk

taste: sweet cereal, skunk

Mouth feel: light, watery and carbonated.

Overall: I have had many coronas in my day. It is easy to drink many at once, especially with lime. I actually prefer it over your typical Budweiser or Miller, even with the skunked smell and flavor, but given the choice, I would rather have something else.
