Last time I had a Corona was in my dad's garage with some Mexicans. I don't quite remember liking it very much, and that was about 6 years ago. $1 special, right here.

Serving style : 12 oz glass bottle, poured for appearance

Appearance (2) : Sudsy white 1 finger head with a bubbly champagne-like appearance. Light gold/hay color with carbonation bubbles lining the body of the glass.

Smell (2.75) : While I was pouring it this really gross dirty diaper/urine smell permeated the air. As I lean in close and sniff the glass, I get a more pleasant scent. Buttered biscuit, cracker, aluminum or tin, mossy water, and some hay. Slightly above average.

Taste (2) : Refreshing but has an off-putting sour corn bitterness. It's really not a horrible taste, but it isn't good, either. I feel like if I drink more of it I will get sick because it's fermented. Ugh. Tin and fermentation. I do honestly feel I will get sick if I drink more. Sour corn, bitter grass, just something rotting. It keeps coming back. Rotting. Does "don't drink the water" in Mexico translate to "don't drink the beer"?

Mouthfeel (2.5) : Slightly creamy but mostly carbonated.

Overall (2.12) : I do feel like I wasted a dollar. I'm not kidding. I will probably pour the rest of this down the drain for fear of illness. Never ever felt that way about a beer before this one. I'd avoid it if I were you. Worst part is, over half the beer is left. Probably the worst lager I've had in a long time, if not ever.

I wanted to review one of the most commercial beer on earth.
I know why they use a clear bottle because the beer is so clear inside the glasse that I can see my finger holding the glasse.
About the smell, there is no smell at all ! I couldn't smell anything from that beer.
Light carbonation, like the color of the beer I guess.
It's a watery beer more than I will say the Coors Light. It's a big zero for the taste.
With the lime, it remind me of the Bud Light Lime. Nothing to special about it.
Without the Lime I will give a 2 and with the lime a 2,25/5. I mean this beer doesn't pass for me and for the price forget about it, you can get much better for the same price (Hoegaarden, 1664 blanc, Boreale Red Ale, even the Pabst will do better than this beer and for cheaper)
So would I recommend it ? Only if its a very hot summer day, you find it on special, have some lime, and need some water/beer then YES, but otherwise its a NO. Its just a big commercial beer.
