1.38/5  rDev -28.1%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. No stamped date.

Appearance - Takes an extremely vigorous pour to get even a one finger head; white with low retention and zero stick. Ultra pale clear gold body.

Smell - Skunk. The faintest of corn malt.

Taste - Some acidity. Semi-dry. Faint stale wet cardboard. Mostly water; but that which is noticable is generally offensive.

Mouthfeel - Watery. You have to swish to to get any vestige of carbonation.

Overall Drinkability - Water with a few drops of stale coffee dripped into it, filtered with old cardboard. Just imagine what Budweiser would taste like if it was diluted with 3 parts water. Had to squeeze in an orange wedge just to finish it.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 1 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

A: faint yellow/straw body, up + down head,
zero lacing (just lots of bubbles)

S: sweet corn/grain

T: light grain, sweet corn, too watery, semi-dry finish

M: light body, huge bubbly mouth

O: Got this as a goof at a restaurant, just to see
how much difference a regular Corona w/lime
and a Corona Light (no lime). OH MY!
This a very weak/watered down light beer.
There are plenty of much better light beers
out there, if want to go for volume.

Review #700.

Some friends of mine, who don't know crap about craft beer, gifted these to me at a Halloween party that I recently hosted. The beer we had that night: Flying Dog: The Fear (a case!), Port City Optimal Wit, Duck Rabitt Milk Stout, Victory Headwaters PA, Great Lakes Octoberfest, and Hacker-Phorr Octoberfest. Despite all of that yummy goodness, people drank more Corona Lights that night than all the others. I'm depressed...

Drank right out of the bottle...for the first time in ages!

A: Clear yellow piss with a few bubbles lurking throughout, but nothing to write home about.

S: Not much of a smell, but what was there smelled a bit like gasoline.

T: My imaginary cash register ring up on this beer would come up like this: "House beer...$1 even." Pretty blah, thin stuff, with a mild sweet breadiness on the end.

M: Kinda spritzy and with no lingering whatsoever. I can see how non-beer types dig this.

O: TIP: I added about 5 lime slices to the bottle and my rating instantaneously jumped up to a "B." Wait a minute... isn't that just straight up lime juice? I friggin love lime juice!

1.85/5  rDev -3.6%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Appearance: Pours a very pale, clear straw color. Lots of carbonation initially, dwindles to low carbonation in about 20 seconds, oddly. About 3/4" white head forms that has poor retention and no lacing.

Smell: Corn, extremely small noble hop character, a bit of skunkiness. Not unexpected, but not real good.

Taste: Adjuncts are apparent, with maybe a hint of pale malt, and a very small amount of noble hops. Do not get as much skunk on the palate, which is nice.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is extremely light and watery with prickly carbonation. Not real smooth going down. Overall, what I expected. At least it was not skunked to the level of some I have had in the past. In an reasonably normal state (sans skunkiness), this beer is not as bad as most would make it out to be. Still, it is certainly not good, or even decent.

I had never had this and decided it was tine. Drank from bottle during Happy Hour on Taco Tuesday at Mi Pueblo. Never again. I took a sip and nearly gagged. I gave it to my friend who doesn't care about craft beer. He took a sip and he nearly gagged as well. two sips and then left the bottle.

I understand the ratings on this site based on comparisons with non-light beers, but for a light, this has been my beer of choice for several years. I actually like the grainy scent and taste. By the way, I normally go for hop-heavy beers, so go figure???

First, I do not understand why this beer has a "poor" reputation. It's decently drinkable, crisp and clean. Yes, so is water! But, we are discussing LIGHT beer here! (Anyone old enough to remember GABLINGERS ? The only beer I ever added salt to! Lime could not save this!!)
Like water, this is a brew for quenching thirst, not savoring!
