The ultimate showdown. Corona side-by-side: one with lime, one without.
Without: Naked Corona
A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in the similarly clear bottle. This allows the beer to soak up the maximum amount of sun possible, which is a good thing right? Some bubbles appear after prying off the bottle cap, but otherwise the body is pretty inactive. I didn't pour it into a glass, just seemed like the bottle was the best vessel for this offering. 3
S: The thin bottle top isn't the best means through which to catch the aroma of Corona, but what I do get is sugary sweet. A little bit of frat basement mixes with how your fingers smell after spilling some sugary juice on them. The slightest bit of beer is in there, too! 2
T: A taste only a mother could love. Very sugary sweet. Some malty caramel begs for something to balance it out, but all you are met with is stale American Adjunct Lager. 1
MF: Light and crisp, the body is what Corona is known for. It does go down well when you're on the beach, preferably directly after swimming in the ocean and swallowing so much seawater that you can't taste anything else. The finish is really off-putting, otherwise it wouldn't be terrible. 3
O: Really pales in comparison. You really are doing yourself a disservice by drinking this straight. 2
With: The Way God Intended It
A: The bottle looks even better with that attractive, vibrant green lime as a hat. The beer explodes to life as the acidic lime drops in, bubbling heavily and yielding a small, fizzy head. 3.5
S: This is where the lime really shows its merit. The lime mixes with the sugary aroma to smell like...well...lime juice. But that's better than what it was otherwise. 2.5
T: I have to tell you, I am honestly shocked how much better this is with a fresh lime wedge in it. The sugary taste that was begging for balance, finds it with the tartness of the lime. The finish is all lime juice, instead of the stale residual sugar from the regular version. 3
MF: Basically the same as the original, just without that nasty aftertaste. The lime really puts this beer on a different level, whatever that means. 3.5
O: The clear victor and still champion: Corona with a lime. 3
