A 710ml clear glass bottle with a BB of April 2013. Picked up from a B&M store recently. Time for a classic macro - go big or go home!

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear pale-gold colour with good carbonation. Forms a large head of white foam that lasts for a minute or so before subsiding to a thin surface layer. Aroma of faint malt with hints of corn, overcooked veg and stewed leaves. Dry and slightly harsh.

Tastes of ultra light malt with a watery character and a dry finish. Mild hints of corn, stewed veggies, harsh leaves and a faint sweetness. Highly attenuated, with some unpleasantly acrid off-notes in the background. A very subtle bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is thin, watery and dry, with tingly carbonation. Rather astringent, with an aftertaste of faint corn/stewed veg and a residual harshness.

Meh - a pretty crappy macro lager. I've had this plenty of times when I was younger (and more ignorant). Initially it wasn't quite as bad as I expected, but hints of corn quickly materialise as it starts to warm up. Very bland, with almost no aroma and little flavour to speak of. It's just not that good and has to be ice-cold to be palatable. Don't follow in the footsteps of millions; instead give it a miss and drink something good.

From the time I joined BeerAdvocate I've made it a point to drink beers I haven't had before. Recently I realized that there are plenty of beers I have tried before joining this site and have since. The more mainstream beers I've avoided rating, but here goes another one...the favorite of many - Corona Extra.

Out of the bottle the beer pours a very nice amber color, and I feel, if you hold it up to the light just right, you'll see an orange tinge to it. Unfortunately, it pours out almost no head (you really have to shake the bottle some to get a small head to appear, which then dissipates instantly. There's something about a beer with no head I just don't find appealing.

The smell is your standard hops, barley, and malt, nothing special, and the taste pretty much follows in the same vain. Mouthfeel was good - no stickiness, just the right amount of carbonation, and it downed quite easily. Overall, an average beer with really good marketing...
