Thin lacing, virtually no head. No hops, mainly watery malt flavor with heavy notes of grass and corn. Skunky to boot. Tastes just like Cat Piss de Mexico de watery. Much better in the brown bottles as Corona Familiar which upgrades it to better than BMC adjunct lagers. The clear bottles ensure it does not travel well. Put down the Skunky Beer. Not recommended as Extra, decent BMC alternative as Familiar in the Brown 32 ounce bottles and decent lawnmower or summer beer.

A: The beer is crystal clear light straw yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down very quickly but never completely faded away.
S: There are faint aromas of malt in the nose.
T: Like the smell, there are some faint aromas of adjunct and grainy malts and possibly the slightest hint of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and very watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink because of its light body. It’s not that bad when served ice cold and has some refreshing properties but as it warms up the beer beings to taste bland.

I'm at a party and someone walks in with a 12 pack of Corona. I made the mistake of not brinigng my own beer, and the only other alternative is some bad vodka without much of any kind of mixers. Looks like I'm stuck with Corona.

Didn't pour it. Didn't have to. The clear bottle shows all. Transparent yellow with a white head. The head foams up rather randomly. It's frustrating. Smells like... adjuncts. Smells like a bad beer. The taste actually isn't quite as bad. It goes down fairly well while cold. Heavy carbonation and light body makes it drinkable, but the flavor isn't too strong either, which makes it rather inoffensive. That is while it is cold. When it starts to warm up, that's another story. Just drink this beer cold and quickly.

Didn't make magically transport me to a beach, but I didn't feel like regurgitating it either.
