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.

L: brilliant straw under a 2" foam collar with moderate retention

S: smells like light grain, faint hops, very faint apple and a hint of sulfur

T: mildly sweet apple, traces of unbaked flour, and a mildly bitter finish

F: light bodied and highly carbonated

O: some flavor but not enough to get excited about

Looks like . . . There is a reason why they serve it ice cold with a lime. And, when you are on the beach and the temp is 95, an iced down Corona with a lime is good. Any other time, it is crap. I cannot drink it without a lime wedge.

Bought these for some people who like these that came to a party at my house and I had a few extra in the fridge after the party and figured what the heck I haven't had one of these in years. Looks like a dehydrated persons piss (nice and bright yellow). The smell is disgusting. Rotting asparagus and vomit with corn husks. The taste is bad. Can't believe when we were younger we used to drink this garbage. I put two huge pieces of lime in it to mask the horrible taste it was so bad. Taste like piss water with lime. The feel is super light . Overall if you are going to go with a Mexican beer try a Modelo Negra or something else better than this. Actually dumped the extra cans I had left down the drain.

Not a bad beer, but really too expensive. It has almost no bitterness. Just the taste of cheap beer

Not sure of people put a lime in the bottle to add flavor or to kill the taste. Definitely has to be cold. I only drink it if my only choice is this or Bud Light!

You know I love real ale and fine lagers but beers like Corona has it place on hot days. Clean and refreshing. I'm no snob and take beers for what they were intended. It is no Saison but does what it was designed for - hot days :-). Great tasting and very refreshing.

Corny water, plain and simple.

Pours a clear straw color with minimal white head. Smells of light grains. Minimal taste, slight hop bite and a little citrus. Clean and crisp. It is what it is, a light summer beer.

Better than water. There's a reason why people put a lime in the bottle: without the lime, there is minimal taste. Not offensive.
