Shouldn't have to justify my rating. Either way, I've alwayse hated corona but as of recently I've fairly enjoyed it.

Only drinkable with a lime. It kind of sucks by itself.

Pours as golden as you can see it through the clear glass is comes in. Outside of the look there isn't much to this beer. If limes didn't exist people wouldn't drink this beer. Even a slight rise in temperature and this beer becomes almost undrinkable.

Pale golden color, clear liquid and minimal head. Light malty aroma. On the palate it is very refreshing and light. Good lager for the summer.

A tad more pleasant than Budweiser, which isn't saying much..
Add the lime, the incessant marketing (aka conditioning) will actually make you think you are enjoying a refreshing beer (not).

Was offered one by a fishing buddy while out on the boat.

I obliged.

From the bottle out of an ice chest at ~39F.

Tasted like anti freeze mixed with cheap malts and stale hops.

Then I come to find out that Corona actually contains propelyne glycol. Yes folks that is the scientific name for anti freeze.

FYI-Glycols are toxic substances to the human body according the US Center For Disease Control.

But for some reason the FDA allows distillers and macrobrewers to use these toxic substances in our food supply.

Glycols are also responsible for lowing testosterone in men and women. In women causing ovarian cancer and turning men into liberal pansies with no heart.

No thanks Corona. Your beer tastes like shit.

This beer is not terrible, especially in the summer. It's just not as good as the craft beers out there. But I would take it over bud or miller anytime. However, there are so many beers to try that are far better. If you have the options, spend a couple extra bucks and try a different beer. Its worth it.

I appreciated this beer only because it is hot in merida Mexico in the summer and it does the work of cooling one off. It feels refreshing, hence the high mouthfeel rating, which in this case is simply a bodyfeel rating. I would only buy it again under similar circumstances, which may happen again soon.

Of beers that are available nearly anywhere, Corona is one of the best, if not the best. Coronas are meant to be drank in social gatherings such as parties or in a bar with a bunch of friends. You buy Corona because its cheap, available nearly anywhere, and tastes better than its peers. Do not compare this beer to craft or expensive not easily accessible beer. Compare this beer to Budweiser, Coors, Miller, Heineken, etc.

Seeing this beer rated so low overall makes me assume that it's resulting from comparing this beer to the best beers out there. That's not a good idea. Overall, I'd call it better in quality than most general American beers (Bud, Miller, Coors, etc.) and very refreshing on a hot day.

If you manage to find a bottle which isn't skunked, at least it's inoffensive and goes down easily.

If.

Drank at a banquet function. I remember enjoying this back in the day. Not so much so now a days. tastes like vegetables sitting out in the sun for an entire afternoon. cheers for evolution.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Mikasa pilsner glass. Pours with a fingers worth of white foam that dissipates to a half fingers worth within a minute. Plethora of bubbles for that first minute then they become mild. Very mild lacing. Pale golden color. Very strong chemical aromas (like cleaning products without the pleasant floral scents that are usually added to make them smell good) with strong adjunct malt aromas (more rice than anything else) and a hint of sugar sweetness. Initial taste strongly reciprocates that chemical odor, however, rice malt flavors immediately follow and overpower the chemical flavors making this lager bearable. Slight sugary notes follow up adjunct malt flavors to give it a somewhat pleasant ending. Carbonation is so strong that it practically burns the tongue (or is it the mystery chemical that's the culprit???). Meduim-bodied and has a crisp finish that strangely quenches my thirst. I have to admit that this is my guilty pleasure beer. A definite go to when I go to non-craft beer bars. Don't judge me. Y'all have your guilty pleasure beers, too.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Crystal clear, golden straw color, thin white head, spotty lacing

S: Adjunct grains, slight lager yeast smell, light hop

T: Skunkyness, sweet adjunct grains, slight hop bitterness

F: Light, fizzy carbonation, crisp, dry

O: This is one of my more favored adjunct lagers. I tend to gravitate toward this style as the weather warms because of price, availability, and they are just great to wet the whistle after a run or mowing the grass, also wonderful out on the boat.
