I used to have to roll into Tijuana to score this beer. I guess now that said place is more dangerous than a ruffies and viagra party, they decided to bring it across the border. Still in the 32oz quart bottle, and brown.

Pours straw yellow clear, but actually forms a little wispy white head that obliterates itself rather quickly. Aroma was mildly grainy, I think all the heavy carbonation got in my nose and made it itchy like I needed to sneeze, as if I had snorted some Alka-Seltzer.

Taste was full of corn and metal, like some cheesy band with a fake scary flyer. I think if you take a regular corona, some mineral water, and a sam adams light, blend them together, you get this beer. I think you can get a little more alcohol taste to it, its better than any other Corona I've ever had, and hey, you don't have to drink as much of it to get a buzz. Lawnmower or memory road stuff at best.

Poured from huge quart bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: well, it's definitely not a Vienna lager as the description says. Based on look alone, I'd say we're looking at regular old Corona here. Light yellow hue with no haze and a light effervescence; head dissipated so quickly you might say there was none.

Smell: sweet and light; pretty clean and not super adjunct-y. You could do a lot worse.

Taste: much like the aroma, I'm getting sweet malt with a hint of grain. Pretty clean, actually, if not particularly flavorful.

Mouthfeel: light body with a fizzy effervescence. Not precisely insipid, but not much going on here.

Overall: pretty darn drinkable. The lack of adjunct off-flavors makes me think this isn't a normal adjunct lager (although, again, it's *definitely* not a Vienna lager). For beers that you buy at the gas station in a quart bottle, it's actually not bad.

I was sitting in a Mexican grocery, eating a tripe and tongue taco and noticed this in the cooler. I figured I would enhance the experience by drinking a "real" Mexican beer. No glass to serve it in, I drank it straight from the 32 ounce bottle, hence the higher score in appearance. The nose and flavor is straight rice with a hint of barley graininess. After I poured a little lime juice in it, the flavor did improve but the base beer is poor and weak. It served the purpose as its light character helped to extinguish the habenero spiciness but I wouldn't bother to drink it again.

32 oz brown bottle poured into pint glass.

has a more robust fuller flavor then Corona extra.
Little darker then Corona extra.
Smells the same.
I think it might be Corona Extra just stored in the brown bottle changes the taste. Its not bad will have again.
