1.73/5  rDev -9.9%

Appearance - Golden yellow, clear beer with nice-sized, moderate carbonation. No real head to speak of. The best scoring category in my review.

Smell - actually smelled a bit like medicine or antiseptic.

Taste - did not have much taste at all. Perhaps a medicine taste.

Mouthfeel - thin. I drank this beer pretty fast.

Drinkability - It was the only cold beer in the house. I think that I would have enjoyed this beer more if I didn't actually think about these 5 categories and how short it falls of the mark in any of them.

2.8/5  rDev +45.8%

Appearance - This poured a beautiful straw yellow in color with a nice, pure white head.

Smell - The grain isn't as offense as most examples of this style but still nothing to write home about. It shows surprising depth though so gets decent marks here.

Taste - The grain is a little staler at the taste. It's not horrid or skunked just not approaching good.

Mouthfeel - This is light-bodied of course with some decent carbonation.

Drinkability - This was passable in a category having a very low bar.

Corona Light is like taking something that is already piss-poor and stripping away and little, tiny bit of dignity it might have left. So pale you could read a small-font novel through it; aroma is on par with dropping a handful of grains, corn, and a few nickels into a cup of water; the taste is like drinking said water cup; mouth feel is like shaking up a 7 up and putting your mouth around the opening of the bottle.

It's not good stuff. I mean, it's not offensive or off-putting or anything necessarily, but it's just not really "beer". Its utter absences of the most beer related aromas and tastes make it hard to judge this fairly. Even for beers of this style, there are many better.

If you're gonna waste your time, just get the regular Corona. Don't bother with the Light. It's already light. It doesn't need to be lighter. Any lighter and it's just going to float away.

So I got around to reviewing Corona Light and trust me I meant to pick up the Extra version.
Anyways poured into and English pint glass (22oz).

A- Pours an ultra pale golden yellow fluid that produces a one inch fluffy white head that quickly falls to light froth and little to none lacing.

S- Corn grit, light metallics and hop funk dominate the nose but very mildly.

T-M- Taste is bland with only hints sweet corn husk, musky malts and a astringent like hop twang. Mouthfeel is well... watery and probabley the best part of this beer. Lawn mower beer and quick to drink. Not a favorite at the price.

D- Decent.

I may be in the minority, but I'd prefer Corona Light over ole Corona Extra. I find the light to be more drinkable while keeping similar smell and taste (although slightly more watery.) It's a beer I go back to on occasion but only because my friends swear by it.

The exceptional smell is, of course, polecat. Go ahead, pop an ice cold Corona Light. Take a whiff. Now go look in the road for Pepe LePew's still-twitching remains. Sorry - better look in the bottle. Thar's a skonk in the corn patch yonder, paw... Starts out grainy and sweet, with no hops apparent. Very little flavor outside of sweet grain that dries out slightly in the finish. I think people put a lime in to differentiate it from cooled-off water that was used to boil corn.

My ex-boss' yuppie wife brings this to parties, stuffs a lime wedge in its neck, and sings its praises 'til the end of the earth. That's fine - saves me the cost of hiring a clown to entertain the kids. At least she has the courtesy to finish the damned things up before she leaves.

Every time I drink this stuff I swear it will be the last time. To say it is bad is an understatement. this beer tastes like watered down urine. With no disrespect to Mexico, they say don't drink the water there, this beer is brewed there, do you think they import bottled water to brew? the alcohol content is the only think keeping people from dying from food poisoning.

Pours an extremely clear, extremely pale yellow color. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Not much of a head. Smells slightly husky, other than that not much of anything. Same with the taste...slightly husky, very mild grains, no hoppiness at all. Very bland and watery with an off taste in the finish. Extremely carbonated, pretty crisp. I guess it's fairly drinkable if I had nothing else around...not by choice.
