I usually don't write reviews from beers that I try at a restaurant but this one I will because I don't think that I missed anything.

I tried this at Old Chicago as part of their Cinco de Mayo mini tour

A-bright yellow with a very fluffy white head that fades quickly with no lacing

S-not much smell at all except for a faint corn/grain presence

T-much like the smell, not much there except maybe a hint of corn

M-thin and watery

O-fizzy, yellow and wet not that good if you are looking for flavor. Mexican version of BMC just another macro brew

2.38/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Served with a wedge of lime.

Appearance- Pours a clear golden yellow with a half a finger width of bubbly head that quickly recedes.

Smell- Corn, grains, skunkiness. Not much else to the smell.

Taste- Not really much to this one. You get the corn, grains, and water. The lime wedge helps to give this beer a boost.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A touch watery but not as watery as other macros.

Overall- A standard adjunct lager. Nothing special in terms of flavour. A patio or beach beer at best (this is what this beer is known for). Thank heaven for the creation of limes to make this brew a tad better.

Pours a very pale yellow color with a fizzy head that goes to nothing in minutes and no lacing. Aroma is of a typical macro beer with corn, and some hops with a skunky odor that is hallmark of the brand. Taste is also a bit skunky, but the lime and salt definitely helped cover it up. Very thin and highly carbonated but slightly refreshing on a hot sunny day.

Haven't had Corona in a long time. Disappointing, now that I've been experimenting with a greater variety of beers.

Often for meals, I'll drink a table beer ... e.g. Bud Light, Miller Light, Miller 64. These are cheap, low calorie, refreshing beers.

Hence my calibration for Corona. Can't say that Corona had any additional taste, character, etc. over these less expensive (and less calorie) beers.
