1.94/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2

I don't think I've ever poured this into a glass. You can see right through it, anyway, thanks to the clear bottle. It's the color of a well-hydrated man's piss, and I would imagine any kind of "head" that forms disappears within seconds. The smell is.... well, the smell is kind of absent, to say the least. Corn, graininess, and a metallic tone. What I usually do is squeeze and drop a lime wedge into this one. Then it just smells like lime. The one lime wedge over-powers every other aroma. Taste is basically the same, crispy and dry from intense carbonation; corns, grains, the palest of all malt flavors. Musky hops, but not enough to really matter or make it bitter. More steel flavors. I've had many skunky bottles, but I've also had plenty that were fine. But again, if you drop the lime it, it pretty much takes over the entire flavor profile, which probably isn't a bad thing. Thin body, crispy as fuck.

Corona was my "go-to" beer before I got into craft. Now that I realize what's out there, it's kind of funny that I ever found this stuff "tasty". But even to this day, I'd still take it over a Bud Light. As long as I can drop a lime in and sprinkle the neck with salt.

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.
