I can't understand how people drop $24 - $26 a case on this beer and then proclaim it's something drastically different and superior to the traditional American adjunct lagers. This is a subpar beer, overpriced and bland, and would be commendable for its sole purpose to be consumed on a beach with a citrus wedge if it wasn't so astronomically expensive. Modelo, while by no means great, is much more flavorful and heavier - probably why it's not as big of a sessionable beer (although its sales blow Corona out of the water at the particular liquor store I work at).

Review: Bottle of Corona Extra lager, 4.6%ABV

One of the beers to drink when it’s summer, Corona is a light beer that has a great refreshing taste, especially in the hot sun.

The flavours are not overwhelming making the beer go down smooth and easily. It’s a beer that everyone can drink and very suitable for a party. No bloated feeling after drinking a few Corona’s.

The appearance has a clear pale straw yellow body. After pouring a small white head appears that dissipates very quickly. Not much lacing. It has a mild, clean, subtle lager aroma, that smells of light, sweet cornbread

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.

I see this is rated lowly. Once again, i don't really know what you all are comparing this to. It doesn't remotely compare to Sierra Nevada Pale ale or Any of that. compared to budweiser and others in its class its a step up.

I cannot lie about this beer...

it's not worthy of your typical BeerAdvocate review.....

Flat out, this beer sucks. It's sold as more expensive than pabst, but that doesn't mean it's any beter.

This beer is just a "fancy" pabst blue ribbon. heavy enunciation on the quotation marks. there is honestly nothing good to say about this beer. it's complete butt. buy it if you wanna look cool at your high school party. otherwise, stay away. nothing to see here, keep it moving.
