My favorite big brand "Go-to" beer. Its decent for the price and better than anything Anheuser-Busch will ever brew.

If there's nothing else around, it is beer, in the most technical sense.

Probably the most overrated, overhyped, and over-marketed beer of all time. The popularity of this beer proves that strategic marketing can sell millions of beers, not the taste or quality of the product. The brew has a watery,sour grain and flat taste that can be rather repulsive. People that defend this beer always say "you have to drink it with lime!" I understand where they are coming from, the lime masks the bland taste and adds some flavour. Lime should never need to be added in order to make a beer tolerable. It amazes me how popular corona extra is and how they try to position it as a premium brew. This is proof that marketing and presenting a certain image with beer does NOT reflect a quality product.

I certainly agree with others on this site that Corona is not good beer. It is a very tepid AAL, and not much more can be said about it. The color is a light yellow. A couple others said it looks like urine. They are not wrong. I drink it at my local Tex Mex joint on Corona Thursdays. Special low price, as it should be. I wedge a lime in the neck of the bottle to pretend there's something flavorful about this beer. But there really isn't. Aroma is not rotten vegetables, though. It's just faint corn grains, nothing special. No head to speak of. The taste is weak, but smooth. Mouthfeel is acceptable. It's an acceptable, mediocre beer. You can drink a few at a time and it's not going to faze you. Get it on special and wedge that lime in. Enough said.

Second worst beer on the planet after Heineken. Fact.

Pours a transparent yellow with no head. The smell was rather skunky. The taste was pretty average with a sweet beginning and then a skunky aftertaste that lingered for a while.
It is what it is.
