I like good beer. And, there are lots of different beers that are good. Some are microbrewed and some are mass produced. Quantity to me is irrelevant. Corona Extra is my favorite for a light, American style lager beer. Unlike, Bud, Coors, Miller, and virtually all the other micro lagers and pilsners, Corona Extra has a slight hoppy taste that I like. Yes, Matilda, this is not an IPA. Duh! But, it's crisp and light as a proper American style lager should be and yet it's got a bit of character, in this case in the form of hops. So, on a nice hot day here in Houston, an ice cold Corona is a great way to chill.
Cheers!

Darkish-yellow, crystal clear. Very active bubbles coming up, thin head no lacing.

Sour, spicy grain aroma. Kind of musty and skunky with some spicy hop presence. Whiff of creamed corn comes through. As the beer warms the sourness picks up.

Mildly spicy hop bitterness up front. Very mild husky grain flavor, some more creamed corn coming through. Hop flavor is spicy but dull and rough around the edges. Flat grainy taste clashes with the dull and course hop spice. Slightly sour corn aftertaste.

Thin and highly carbonated, lending more bite to the moutfeel. So fizzy it foams up in the mouth confusing my taste buds and misdirecting them.

Bland, fizzy and with a rough hop edge that I find unpleasant. Perhaps the hops are trying to hide the vegetal husky corn flavor of the malt.

Drank from a cold 12oz. bottle.

A- see-thru light straw color. Head, lacing, who knows? I drank it right from the bottle. After the lime wedge goes in it looks - inviting.

S- some kind of faint grain aroma with a hint of alcohol. Skunky like a pilsner for a brief moment until the lime wedge eliminates that.

T- Yummy, in a lack of pronounced flavor kind of way. Hey, it's the lime and the fact that it is a beer that holds up to ice cold temps. OK, there's a little corn and malt grain taste trying to hide.

M- wet and cold with good carbonation. Silky, so easy to drink by the bunch.

O- I know, I'm going against the grain here, so to speak, but I like what I like. And I liked Corona 30+ years ago when I first had it, and I still do, lime and all.
