Beer shouldn't need lime to be drinkable.

It's hard to mess up the color of a lager and Corona fits the bill, although it's on the pale side. The head is insipid and retains poorly.

My particular bottle had no off-notes, but even without skunking, the taste is uninspiring. Not offensive, but nothing special. Minimal adjunct character, which is a saving grace. It's what I imagined beer would taste like when I was 10 - a flat malty taste, slight and characterless bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is respectable, smooth, and refreshing, and the lack of strong character in the smell and taste departments doesn't hurt - it cleanses the palate well.

If you're making a chelada, find some Modelo. If you want a decent inoffensive lager, bitte ein Bit or similar. But you could do worse

A smooth and easy drinking Mexican beer. Very refreshing. Had it with the lime wedge of course. Was very happy with it. Corona has made it into some of my favorite macro beers. Cheers.

Sadly this was more of a disappointment, though not bad... The flavor is a medium bitter with little else to compensate, other than that it has a lovely amount of foam, very smooth, with the perfect amount of carbonation, all in all this beer is decent. Not much smell, which I consider a good thing, since light grainy smell is better than a bad smell.

Very crisp taste that is perfect for a hot day outside! Always have some in my fridge.
