Rereviewing after just drinking a Corona Premier, to compare. That is probably the worst beer I have ever had. I do like the bottle design and the Stegosauruses, however I am reviewing the beer, not the artwork.

Rather a pale colour, similar to most beers from Mexico. Aroma is almost nothing, with a little lime. And there is no lime or lemon added ; ) The aroma is a little better than the Premier version.

Taste is so light, I'm completely confused as to why there is also a light version and a Premier version that are even lighter. Hops are mega subtle. The most subtle hops that I have maybe ever tasted. However at least it's detectable. This is much better than the "Premier" version. In hot weather I guess this is kind of good and refreshing.

Mouth feel is ok. The hops kind of hit you after the initial wateryness. The mouth feel is the best thing about this. And it was the worst thing about the Premier version.

Overall this isn't as bad (without lime) as I was expecting. It's much much better than the Premier. Beer Advocate reviewing seriously need to wake up as this actually has a much lower score.

As a light beer, this is actually ok. I'm just confised why they decided to create even lighter beers ; ) Maybe if I go to Mexico and live in temperatures each day of 40 centigrade and sweat about mafia murdering me because of giving bad reviews to Corona Premier, I would also like Corona Premier? Maybe ; )

Corona is one of those beers most folks have tried at least once in their lifetime. It’s readily available throughout the United States and abroad. It is nothing to write home about either. Its smell is near non existent when cold and as it warms up to a room temperature it has a mild skunk smell. Its taste is bland when ice cold. When warm that skunky and almost metallic like taste comes through hard. The feel is well.. there is none. You can easily drink these beers down when ice cold. It’s a decent ish beer when mowing the lawn or doing work outside on a hot summer day, but so are many other brands at less cost.

12oz tall, skinny can, Stamped on can bottom is 'BB OCT 2022'.
Clear, straw colored body. One finger of white head, which results in an active surface and very thin ring. No lacing.
Aroma of corn, green apple, and light toasted malt.
Taste is sweet corn and green apple. Slight sulfur in later stages and into the aftertaste.
Medium mouth feel. Clean and crisp finish. Very good carbonation.
A "wet your whistle" lager that does not get in the way of good taste. Very inoffensive.

Ink on bottle neck claims best by September 2023, which is obscene to me. Especially for a beer in a clear bottle. I suppose it sells enough that it's never really in danger of being out-of-date, but still. Anyway, this is amongst the most basic, nothing-happening beers I've ever had. I thought it'd be good on a hot day, but it's bringing almost nothing to the table. It's also completely inoffensive, which probably explains it's appeal. Add some lime and it certainly tastes more interesting, but it also amplifies a skunky note on the nose. Meh.

Mouth feel - Prickly carbonation, thin.

Taste - Mild grassiness, very light .

Overall - Good on a hot day or maybe with spicy food , not great on it's own.

Can (tasted alongside other adjunct lagers in a tasting):
A pale golden with a mere splash of tan and a fair head. Nose isn't much.but has a mild metallic note. Starts mildly sweet, with enough other flavors to keep it from staying that way. A bare lean to something bitter or metallic or even skunky, but I can't really tell, which indicates how light the taste is.

Appearance: Brilliant, clear pale gold. Thin white head with poor retention.

Aroma: Skunk immediately, floral hops and bread flour malt

Flavor & aftertaste: Semi-sweet start to finish. Bread flour. Metallic taste. Moderate to low bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied. Short finish with lingering bitterness.

Overall: Like many, I've drank this beer a few times but never reviewed it. There's a reason it comes with a lime - to make it more drinkable. Over priced at 9.99 a six pack too. It amazes me this is a best selling beer. The skunky smell hits you immediately -a really bad bonus aroma in the clear bottle. After you let it air out a bit you can pick out a little floral hops and bread flour like malt, but minimal. "Flavor" the same with a metallic flavor throughout. Definitely note the sweetness plus a little toasty malt after it warms a bit. The poor reviews this beer gets are well earned. Wow. Don't think I've had a canned version, but go with that if you find it. Corona Familia is much better.

This is my favorite beer. I know it’s absolutely awful and no one seems to like it and I can understand that when compared to other beers but I’m not comparing it to anything. I love the bottle. I love the lime. I love that it’s from Mexico. I love this beer. It’s my go to beer and always will be.

Not great, not terrible but I do have some great memories drinking this beer when I was in college--maybe that helps the flavor.

Pours out of the can a crystal clear yellow with about an inch if fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Smells very grainy and maybe a hint of apple and lemon zest. Tastes fairly bland with the grainy flavor being the dominant trait. Nice carbonation though, so pretty good for hot day, and if you do add the lime it probably increases the values by .5-1 point in smell and flavor categories, but the rating is for the beer alone.

12 ounce bottle poured into a large mug.
Best by: 4/23

Brilliantly clear and yellow showing sparse rising bubbles. The half inch white head is gone in 30 seconds. It gives off a plenty of skunk and weedy aroma while the head is up after which it has a weak grainy aroma with hints of lemon. Not much in the way of flavor but barley malt is present with some green hop flavor being obscured by astringency. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, but somewhat harsh.
Below average.

Thin golden color

Aroma isn’t much, a bit of corn

It doesn’t taste bad, but it doesn’t really taste like anything at all. Rice and corn

Mouthfeel is pleasant.

It doesn’t taste BAD, it just doesn’t taste like much of anything. Popping a lime in improves the flavor and makes it enjoyable to sip on on a hot day, but for the money Corona costs you’re better off spending it elsewhere

Nothing spectacular just a typical Macro lager that is perfect when it's so cold you can't even taste it on a 100 degree summer day.

Solid lager with slightly more hops than the average macro, honestly tastes slightly like a modelo especial with a tad more roundness. sharp, crisp, always try to get it from an enclosed case or box.

Appearance: Pours a clear, straw color, with a fizzy foam head that disappears quickly.

Aroma: Semi sweet malted grains, corn and green apple. Little floral.

Taste: Malted grains and corn, bitter aluminum finish.

Overall: what can I say? I bought them for somebody and they didn't even bother drinking them, so I'm stuck with them. A regular mainstream piss water. Not the worst I've had but not great either.
