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. (369 characters)

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. (616 characters)

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. (304 characters)
