[note: review done w/o lime]

pours a clear, pale yellow and yields a 2" fizzy white head that lacks any sort of retention or lacing.

nose is vaguely skunky with notes of grain and precedes an equally lackluster flavor; grainy and bland with an unpleasant bitterness to it. this is what necessitates the lime, obviously. as noted in other reviews, this is not a good tasting beer even by macro/AAL standards. still, i will admit accepting one from time to time under the right (read: beach) circumstances. with a lime.

Bottle to pint, no lime wedge.

A: Pale yellow, very pale in fact. Poured with a finger of head that receded to nothing, no lacing.

S: Grains, some light skunkiness, corn, very faint.

T: Light grainy flavor, corn. Really tastes like nothing. Has a wierd sour finish.

M: Very light, watery, crisp carbonation.

O: Refreshing, decent at best. If I'm going to have a macro lager, it won't be this one.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pilsner glass. Pours a pale straw yellow with a thin white head that quickly dissipates.

Smells of corn, wheat and hints of straw. There's a hint of tang, maybe lemon also present. I opted to not include the lime so that I would get the true Corona Extra experience; I am beginning to regret that decision.

Taste is thin and muted, with hints of straw and grass up front, and malty corn toward the finish. There's a slight tang or bitter at the finish that develops into an unpleasant aftertaste that lingers on the tongue.

Thin in feel, with a thicker malt at the back of the tongue as you swallow it down. The aftertaste has an almost sour lactic taste which is quite unpleasant.

I've had worse beers, that is for sure. This is relatively unoffensive, except for its aftertaste. Still, among the Mexican brews I've had, this is among the least remarkable.
