A: Pours a surprisingly light shade of straw, holds no head, and boasts no lacing. This beer looks about as sexy as the bearded lady at the circus.
S: They could market the term "odorless" for this brew, but then they would be discounting the nuance of creamed corn that I'm getting...
T: More creamed corn, no hops, no barley, just corn.
M: Have you ever had soda water on its own?
D: How do people pay a dollar per bottle of this junk? In all honesty, I would drink Natty Light over this. They taste about the same, but Natty is cheaper. On a side note, I hate corona from my days at Beers of the World, due to the countless bottles I had to sort that contained moldy limes.

2.13/5 rDev +11.5%
look: 1.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2
Had some sitting in the fridge, so I thought I may as well review it.
serving: ~40F bottle poured into stem glass.
Appearance: typical macro lager look. For a light beer, it has a surprisingly rich yellow color, but absolutely no head. I don't think Corona really cared about how this would look in a glass, especially considering the commercials always present it in the bottle (with a lime stuck in it).
Smell: As you would expect with a light lager, there's not much going on here. Some sweetness and grain. Thankfully not as much corn going on as the Corona extra.
Taste: Light, watery, and inoffensive lager. The corn/vague adjunct flavor strikes back in the aftertaste.
Mouth: Water seems to be the running theme here, with some crisp from the carbonation.
Overall: Corona light is an inoffensive macro light lager. When I first had it, not realizing it was the light version, thought something like "wow, Corona doesn't taste as crappy as I remember it, in fact it tastes like nothing at all!". I mean, you can't really rail on this beer for being flavorless, it's nothing like the nauseating Keystone Light, but then again it's pretty expensive for what it is. As far as light beers go, you could do worse. I've used it for carmelizing onions and they turned out pretty well, so maybe there's a use for it after all.
