I don't discuss appearance in my reviews unless it's outstanding -either super good or super bad. This is a very ugly, ugly beer. Looks like a mildly yellow water with an anemic fizzy head, and that's gone in seconds. Looks like old alka-seltzer water.

Smells like skunked . . . and overcooked steamed vegetables. That's about it. Not appealing at all.

Tastes like . . . grain . . . sort of . . . grainy water and mildly sweet malts just in the middle. A very tiny echo of bitterness (hops, maybe?). Hints of corn. Not yummy.

Feels like fizzy water. Very clean. Lighter bodied than the other two adjuncts I've tried today. So, I guess it's got drinkability?

How/why do people pay for this stuff? I'm even more baffled than the Budweiser I just reviewed.

This is NOT beer.

Poured from the "Corona Familiar" bottle into a pint glass.

It's very yellow with a foamy white head. Brisk carbonation.

It's a bit adjuncty. Very sweet. Hint of bittering hops.

It's really sweet. There is a huge amount of sweetness that is not matched by the hops. This beer doesn't seem as skunky as I remember Corona being. Perhaps it's the brown bottle.

It's watery and very carbonated.

Overall, nothing too spectacular. There are still about 5 other Mexican macros I'd rather drink before this one.
