I guess this is a harder to find version of Corona, something of a "draught version"? Whatever it is, the only thing going for it is the cool little 325mL bottle. It is even lighter than Corona Extra, and has even less flavor. I challenge anyone to get through even one of these tiny little cute bottles.

The positive - an interesting, rounded-stubby bottle. The negative - pretty much everything else. Staying at a resort that only had Corona on tap and this in the room mini-fridge, and it made the Corona look good in comparison. Sharp, acidic malt up front, drying with strong corn notes. A bit chalky at the finish with some raw grain notes. It was a bit of a struggle to get it down, even well chilled.

325ml round stubby poured into pint glass 28/8/12
A clear pale yellow with lots of tiny bubbles but just a thin soapy film that gone in seconds and leaves no lace
S wet cardboard, rice cake and a little skunk
T not as much skunk but nothing too write home about, lack of flavor may not be a bad thing for this one
M very thin and airy, I think theres more flavor on the finish then while drinking it
O perhaps a safe alternative to the tap water here in Mexico, I think the tap water might have more flavor however
one and done, even in this unbearable heat this wasen´t very good it was the round stubby bottle that grabbed my attention

Pale gold color, very much darker than its other Corona cousins. Aromas of malts and some hops. Taste of semi-dry malts and with much bitterness from hops than the traditional style. Nice drinkability. It's still a very thin beer but with a little bit more body than regular Corona.

Was on sale at Chedraui and I couldn't resist the barrel-shaped bottles - adorbs! Winkyface. It does look pretty cute in my coozy.
Pours a pale straw, crystal clear, any head you can coax out of the thing vanishes instantly.
Smells like... well, I really have to work at the damn thing to smell anything. It's kind of... beery? A vague bit of ricey-ness I guess? But nothing off to speak of, which counts for something.
Tastes like... again, hm... It's kind of beery? Mineral water with a faint soapy bitterness on the finish. Boring - but, again, pretty clean.
Mouthfeel is fine. A touch overcarbonated I suppose.
A (clean but) below-average beer. Not awful, but you can do better than this one. It's going in the Michelada pile.

Recently had this while vacationing in Cancun. Purchased in a 6-pack of unique stubby brown bottles. None of the locals knew any details of the beer or how it was different from regular Corona.
More bitterness and "beer flavor" than regular clear bottle Corona Extra. Nothing stood out about the beer, good or bad, other than that.
Rating per style it is difficult as there were relatively few good beers available in that region. When put up against other beers in it's category, it was quite decent. Overall however, Bohemia or Negra Modelo are much better Mexican beers, though obviously of different style.

Pours a very light yellow colour beer with a froathy two finger head that disappears until you leave your bottle down.
Bad smell, smells as really old dried beer on your t-shirt would smell.
Nothing great on taste too, very flat taste with a trace of lemons and metallic too. Enjoyable though.
On the body is thin with average carbonation.
Overall I think it would make a great party beer, is cheap and enjoyable. Based on that, I'll give it an overall mark of 3.

Consumed in October 2004 in Cancun, Mexico in the small stubby bottle. Very confused!!! Is this different than Corona or the Corona Familiar? Tastes the same as the familiar. A bit more stronger than Corona extra. Tastes a little better, and fairly easy to consume on a hot day. Cheap as hell in Mexico too. Can't beat $33 peso's for a six pack. Drank these mostly while kicking back on the beach.

Appearance: ugly pale yellow, poor head of foam;
Smell: smooth with some malt, cereals and carbonation;
Taste: Very little essence of malt;
Mouthfeel: Refreshing, fizzy and high carbonation;
Drinkability is faulty, althogh is tasty with food or alone, the volume of alcohol is like of a light beer.

I received this one from a friend that brought over from Mexico. He mention that this one was high in alcohol. Sadly not even close. Pale in color and a white head. This beer has a light fragrance. Hints of crystal malts and spivey notes. Not a big deal. Taste is very similar to the macros and quite refreshing lager. A session beer that will meet the masses. Slight more flavor then your typical corona.

Not like Corona extra. Picked up a six of this in Playa del Carmen. Neat little barrel shaped bottles. Wish it was imported to the states. Pours a bit darker than the Corona we are brain washed to drink. Smells and tastes NOT of a skunked beer(Corona itself) but a pleasant malty balance. A bit heavier on taste which makes it all the more appealing. If they could have this on tap, it would be a big hit here. Great vacation beer or any time of year brew. Wish I had some more but will have to wait till my next Mexican vacation.

Modelo states that this draft is a different beer from Corona Extra, and I'm willing to believe them.
This is a beer that I have never drank in a glass. This is a party brew! So I don't know how it behaves after pouring.
At least its smell isn't skuny (thank God!).
More bitter than Corona Extra, with a grassy aftertaste.
Clear, crisp mouthfeel.
Very easy to drink a full six pack.
Price is the issue here. This one in dirt cheap, even for Mexican standards.
