North Carolina

2.95/5  rDev +28.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

A - very typical of the style. Light straw color, little head and not much retention. Average.

S - skunky smell. Smells like a cheap adjunct other than that though.

T - varies a lot. Pretty good in my opinion if you buy it in the 12 pack box. I think that keeps the light out of it. Not terrible in a 6-pack, but pretty skunked. Don't buy this as a single unless you want to kno what a skunky beer taste like. If it's not skunked though this is actually an above average adjunct. Has a nice hop character and balance for the style. Good in cans if you can find them.

M - too much carbonation. Otherwise avg for the style.

D - very drinkable just like most adjuncts.

Overall I think this beer gets an undeserved bad reputation. If it's the skunk taste that gets you, give it a try in cans if you can find it, really above average taste for a macro adjunct. Can be a little pricy for what it is though.

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.
