Typical adjunct lager smell of corn grains rice and yeast and beery smell. This is actually better than how Corona usually smells because I'm drinking it from a can so there is no skunky smell at all. On the taste I get crispness from the carbonation along with the sweet corn syrup like malt with a very very slight burst of a citrus hop? Its very very subtle though. I also get the rice taste mixing in with the yeasty taste. Its not that bad. The corn syrup malty taste tries to hold up against the watery body and does an OKAY job at it. This is a pretty refreshing full flavored beer and I actually like this better than regular Budweiser only if it comes in a can though. The bottle skunk smell and taste is awful at which point I'd pick a Budweiser over this. Smart move on their part to put it in a can though. Not bad but not good.

Anyone who doesn't like this beer is just a hater because of the hype. The beer is light and is very refreshing. Nobody ever says "nah man i don't like Corona"... that sentence should be followed by a slap to the face because they are clearly lying to your face.

Classic Beer. Pop one of these open at the beach and you'll surely enjoy yourself. If you're feeling extra adventurous, stick a lime slice in it and you'll have a great time. This is very refreshing and you'll get to taste a little bit of Mexico!

2.19/5  rDev -4.8%
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.
