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.

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.

Bought a six-pack in Mexico for about 2 bucks. This crap is better than the Corona extra and, of course, Budwieser. Corona Barril works best in an outdoor party setting, and is best when ice cold. This stuff actually had a little malt flavor accent and hop flavors above the Corona Extra that all the yuppies suck down. Comes in a short stubby brown barrel-like bottle.

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.

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.
