So I am not afraid to say that I truly enjoy a corona with lime on a hot summer day! With that said - I tried it without a lime and it was really tough to drink. Skunky, murky and strange. I will continue to drink it in the summer at times but it makes me wonder what the lime is covering up… I would give it a 3.25 overall with the lime but I am trying to just rate the beer here and I think I may have been generous ;)

Reviewed at long last, one of several consumed over the Christmas break in Cabo San Lucas. An embarrassing previous staple of mine and the sort of thing you want to kick someone for daring to drink here, yet loaded with nostalgia and primed via years of social conditioning that says "skunked corn actually tastes GOOD"! Everyone knows the color but for posterity's sake its bright yellow and has pretty minimal white fizz rimming the glass. Smells like creamed corn seasoned with a nondescript apple-like fruitiness due to under-aging with a dash of skunky marsh vegetation. True to form, I do find this to be the corniest of the mainstream Mexican fizz parade, with corn bread and DMS cooked veggie flavors running the show. Sweeter and breadier than Pacifico with subtle apple and citrus notes. Some people claim they can taste a hint of lime in this even without the iconic wedge added. Sure, although its probably a mirage. I'd actually say the carbonation is moderate. Thin, watery, and finishes predictably sweet with a bare hint of grass. The corn and skunk elements do add some character than is missing from American examples of the style (but see my above remark about conditioning. Don't mistake this preference for "good beer"). Most people pay little attention when drinking this but I suggest you do so, for educational purposes if nothing else. Skip the lime too, at least once.

A decent beer for a restaurant outing, not spectacular, but it's fine enough for what it is

Solid lager fare. A little better than similar American offerings in my opinion.

Smells like cat urine. Tastes wicked awful, like sex in a canoe on a river near a water treatment plant. But not as bad as Bud light.

Though it's not the best beer, it's comfort food for us Left Coasters. Simple, almost a light beer in disguise.

Corona’s very light in taste, mild, clean with no bitterness and has a rather thin tasting watery feel. It’s flavour is minimal, but on a hot day it quenches the thirst.
