Massachusetts

1.78/5  rDev -22.3%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Presentation: CLEAR 12 oz bottle with no freshness date.

Appearance: Crystal clear straw in colour with a very faint bubbly white lace that does not retain well.

Smell: Odd faded aromas of sulphur, faint skunk, mild cooked veggies, grain and a good whiff of ethonal alcohol ... these all seem to be trademark Corona aromas.

Taste: Crisp carbonation holds a light to medium body. Flavours of husk, cooked corn and a light sweetness are all on the palate. Hop bitterness is there to balance and lingers for a bit until a somewhat clean finish comes along with some fading corn flavours.

Notes: This is the #1 imported beer in the US though there are numerous others south-of-the-border brews that are worth checking out. As for the lime thing ... you won't see it here. Is it really worth the $20-24 a case? Not to us.

Sometimes, I must admit that a cold Corona hits the spot on a hot summer day ... or is it the 5 lemon or lime wedges that I pushed into the bottle to mask this lackluster beer? Remove the citrus addition and you've got an adjunct full beer with a very bland character all around. Anything less than ice cold is also undrinkable.

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.
