On taste, it is skunky, not regular skunky, but like a barn filled with skunks. Also tastes like corn chips. Very light, mostly unappealing lookwise. Not any head to speak of nor a good feel. Unless you're looking for a mineral water or soda. The go to for back yard barbeques, and I have no idea why.

This beer is why I bring my own to every pool and/or summer party. Tried it, don't get it. You need the lime just to get any hint of flavor. For me, this is a weak beer from Mexico that needs to go the way of the T-Rex.

Clear yellow. Drank out of the bottle, very little lacing. Fizzy and watery mouthfeel. Smells of corn and sulpher. Strange malty and sulpher taste combination with little hops background. I killed the taste with the lime wedge put in by the bartender. That made it drinkable.

Standard-bearer of Mexican lagers. Compared to Corona Light, I prefer Extra since it's heavy enough to be satisfying after just one. A pleasant and light skunky smell. Refreshing and good with lime. Needs to be cold, and the carbonation can be a bit much. I enjoy light lagers so Corona is a consistent favorite of mine on a warm summer night out.
