I am surprised to find out that I haven’t reviewed Corona in the least. I thought for sure I had a review of ‘regular’ ol’ Corona in the clear glass bottles—aka Corona Extra—to set up my comparison… What’s the difference between Extra and Familiar Corona? The Corona Familiar came in a caguama, a big quart-sized brown glass bottle. And for some reason it hit the spot, prompting lots of reminiscing about travels abroad and comparisons to the swill we’ve all had from the clear glass bottles. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a fantastic beer but at the point and time when I had this it worked. And worked well.
This was a pale yellow color—piss yellow, some things never change—with a barely discernible aroma. It still had that honey sweetness I associate with Corona but it wasn’t cloyingly so. Not much flavor, a weak finish, but I’ll take this (the Familiar) over the clear glass bottled version any time.
