Well, I've drank a thousand of these over the years but as a BA novice, I'm just reviewing it now. Poured it from a bottle (no expiration date) into a stein...should have used a pint glass but went with the stein b/c it was most accessible.

Appearance - Transparent, highly carbonated, light, gold color. Initially had about a 1/2 a thumb's worth of head but it quickly dissipated (within 15 seconds). Slight lacy, head on the side of the stein as I drink it.

Smell - Sweet, grainy, yeast-like smell. Hard to identify the source of the sweetness. I have to confess, I enjoy the smell of a Corona (I know this puts me in the BA community minority!).

Taste - Highly carbonated, very-light; compared to the recent (higher quality) beers that I've drank it is almost tasteless. Not much to really write about here....below average in terms of robustness of taste. No hoppiness detected.

Mouthfeel - Below average, not very pleasing on the palate due to plain taste and high carbonation.

Overall - It is what I always knew it was - a nice light beer to drink if you are having a Mexican meal, it's hot outside, and you plan on drinking 10 or so beers. Otherwise, very plain light beer that's not worth writing home about.

12 oz bottle pours a yellow-gold color with lots of visible carbonation. Sure enough, the carbonation level is high; probably a good thing given the light and watery body.
Aroma? ,,, what aroma? Oh, there it is: adjunct (corn) light lager with some doughy malt. Flavor to match.

O: Corona Extra managed to exceed my very low expectations. No particular flaws excepting the remarkably low levels of hops and malts, and high level of corn in the nose and flavor. Only good as a thirst quenching cold beverage where I would indeed prefer this to water on occasion.
