This is the only beer, with rare exception, that i choose to drink from the bottle. I guess it's because the slice of lime fits so well in the neck of the bottle.

I drink this beer from time to time even though i have much superior beers to choose from. Many beer geeks on this site will go out of their way to talk down about Corona to legitimize their "beer geek" status. But in reality, there's nothing wrong with a Corona with lime, for me anyway, after working the second shift on a Saturday.

This beer, along with Miller Genuine Draft, were my mainstays in the years after college. When cold to the point of slushing up, this beer is refreshing like none other. It's a perfect pairing with a chicken pot pie hot out of the oven.

Bud Light Lime doesn't do it for me like Corona with a slice of lime. This beer goes down so easy. This is my third and it's as good as my first. Cheers !!

Out of a bottle at some bunk azz party.

You ever have a horse piss in ur mouth? I haven't, but I imagine drinkin' this snake juice is what it tastes like.

Man, everything is wrong with this thing. How the hell can you expect me to enjoy sumthin that tastes and smell like a skunks boo boo? Damn... the only way I can wash this gutter drink down is with a hefty dose of lime and salt. And still... ay mami!!!!

Corona is not nearly the worst beer I have tasted, but it's far from the best. It's very easy to drink in the summer, but other than that it has almost no taste and what is there is a very generic pilsner taste.

It IS better with a lime and salt...but not by much.
