If your going to drink a light beer your better off finding a cheap domestic brew. This stuff is over priced and tasted like skunk piss. Terrible beer with a wierd buzz

330 mL bottle pulled from the singles bin of my local LCBO; coded 080514 (I am guessing that means it was packaged on Aug 5 2014, since there is also a 24-hour-clock time stamp, which usually indicates time of bottling). Listed at 3.9%, and served ice cold.

Pours a pale, clear straw-yellow, topped with one finger of fizzy white head that rapidly vanishes. A soapy film remains behind, along with a slight collar. Yes, this looks like light beer alright. The aroma is skunk city, and not in the charming, restrained way of some Euro lagers. This just smells like a wet garbage bag full of boiled vegetables, located in a neighbourhood where a skunk was recently run over. Absolutely unappealing, although as an interesting aside this may be the most aromatic Light Beer I've ever had the displeasure of sniffing.

This beer's bright spot is probably the flavour, and that isn't saying much because it doesn't actually taste like much of anything. Sort of like a soggy corn chip, diluted by a couple of orders of magnitude, as if this were some sort of homeopathic remedy. It finishes with that cardboard flavour I find in many light lagers, and that's all she wrote. This is one of the most flavourless beers I have ever consumed, which is in stark contrast to the stinky, unrelenting aroma. Thin-bodied, watery, and fizzy, like this sort of beer is supposed to be. Refreshing I suppose, if you can get past the skunk. I usually can, but this one is just too pungently sulphurous to ignore.

Final Grade: 1.99, a regrettable D-. I have reviewed many American-style adjunct lagers, and while there are definitely a lot of stinkers in that category, there are plenty of cheap, serviceable options as well. I often find that the BA aggregate average overstates the crappiness of these types of beers, but Corona Light is one instance where it is spot on. This is inexcusably, offensively bad, and just a fetid excuse for a light beer all around. I would not pay money for this again, and I doubt I'd accept it as a freebie, either. Light beer fans can easily find something that costs less and doesn't smell like roadkill.

Great summertime, outdoors, BBQ'ing by the lake beer. Not as good as Sam Adams Light but still quite drinkable.

I heard that Corona Light has the same flavor profile as the Corona Extra. I have to say it has big flavor for a light beer.
Pours pale gold with about one finger of white three minute head. A few spots and streaks of lace. The head ring stays all the way to the bottom.
Smell is faint grain.
Taste is light malts with a nice noble hop bitterness in the finish.
It finishes dry refreshing and with a light hop bitterness.
Overall a big surprise for a light beer. One of the best I have had. No fruit, salt, or anything else added.
