Reviewed 11/27/12

Note: 500th review posted to BA. A 24oz bottle of Corona Extra. It's happening.

Appearance: Crystal clear, golden yellow - pours with virtually no head - the fizzy, white head fades nearly instantly, leaves a tiny ring - not bubbly, clearly lacking carbonation - absolutely no lacing - gets a point for clarity, but otherwise falls flat (literally)

Smell: Mmm... the enticing aroma of a dead skunk sprinkled with sugar - this is the definition of light-struck beer (maybe the canned version isn't skunked, but the clear bottles imply that the skunk is clearly intentional) - beyond the skunk, there are some very sweet grains - nothing else in the aroma, period (could be worse, I suppose)

Taste: Grainy, watery, weird - sweet grains, sugar packets, corn - a little musty, with some corn husk - flat seltzer water - minimal bitterness, with some grass - sugary, gritty, strange aftertaste - bad, but it's not making me gag

Mouthfeel: Light, lacking carbonation, not clean, not crisp, watery, fails at being a lager

Overall: The triumph of marketing over sanity

I have a long legacy of hatred towards this beer. It was one of the first beers I ever had, and I thought it was terrible, even then (even compared to other gems like Bud Light). Now, it's time to bury the hatchet. This is my 500th review. So when I say, "Corona sucks," I now have evidence to back up my claim. "But, bro, you don't get it, Corona is great on a hot day, just imagine yourself on the beach!" No. That's marketing. Damn fine marketing, too. You know what's good on a hot day? A cold beverage. Corona does have the potential to be cold, but it's not good. Ever.

Side note: Why did I choose this for my 500th review? In some ways I have Corona to thank for inspiring me to explore craft beer. I disliked Corona so much that I felt compelled to find better beer. And I did. Th-thanks, Corona.

Nebraska

2.19/5  rDev -4.4%
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.
