Pretty bad. If you had tabasco and a lot of lime juice it is.....still pretty bad.

I just finished reviewing the more calorie-rich bigger sister of this beer. I felt as if I may get ill from it. But since I'm taking one for the team, I might as well review the Corona Light I picked up tonight, also for $1.

Serving style : 12 oz bottle, poured for appearance.

Appearance (2) : Almost identical to Corona Extra but a thinner head that recedes quicker and a slightly more pale, apple color.

Smell (3) : The dirty diaper smell came out again, or maybe I'm just smelling drunk Mexican. I dunno. A closer whiff reveals a slightly pleasant buttered cracker and fresh hay smell. This smells identical to Corona but sweeter and actually fruitier.

Taste (3) : Better than Corona Extra. By a mile. I think they toned down the nasty corn notes so it's a smoother, more palatable lager. It's still not amazing, and it has a bit of sharp crude corn tartness, but overall it does taste a smidge better. I'm getting some light butter cracker, some plastic, straw, and then the maize flavor again. Corn flavor is comparable to Miller High Life.

Mouthfeel (2) : Pretty light bodied and heavily carbonated. Not much to it, I think it would wisp away if one left it longer than a day.

Overall (2.34) : Surprisingly better than Corona Extra, if only for the fact that there's less Corona "flavor". I have Corona Extra still here on my desk (I couldn't bare to finish it for fear of illness), and comparing the two side by side it's easy to say that Corona Light is a more palatable drink. That being said, it's still rather terrible.
