A great Mexican beer. I don't get why such low reviews.

Light gold in color. Absolutely no flavor or taste... Unless you add a lime or lemon or even both.

Corona Extra is good flavoured beer and only 4,5% alcohol. Flavourous aftertaste lasts quite long. Easily drinkable beer.

I've made five trips to Mexico over the years, and I've never thought much of the cerveza (but obviously I love the country and the people). I have a really cool Corona t-shirt I bought in Mazatlán, so I suppose I should review the beer. It is incorrectly slammed by a lot of reviewers, but remember, you are comparing it to Budweiser, not your local AIPA.

It pours clear yellow with very little head. A nice finishing hops aroma hits you at first but for some reason it dissipates. The taste is clean sweet and thin, what you expect for the style. The finish is very refreshing.

Recommended, if you are looking for an American style beer for your guests, or you are in Mexico and don't have a lot of options (washes down tequila just fine).

Meh. I wouldn’t buy it again but it isn’t horrible. I do not prefer it with a lime. Has a decent head. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Drank from a 12 ounce bottle. Rated based on style.

Look - Clear bottle shows off the disgustingly pale yellow liquid inside. The bottle logo gives a false sense of exotic vacation.

Smell - Nothing.

Taste - Nothing.

Feel - Slightly too carbonated. A bit hard to drink.

Overall - Not good at all. No wonder they recommend adding a lime.

24 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 9/30/2017. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Good appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit too lemon/pear fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread, light biscuit dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.5%. Overall this is a very solid pale adjunct lager. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV. Clean pale malt/grains and solid earthy hop balance for the style. Nice barley presence, and not overdone on adjuncts. An enjoyable and well made offering.

Medium amber color with a thin, fading head. Light body with a noticable hop bitterness. A touch of graininess and no malt palate to mention. A drinkable, yet uninspired beer. It would do in a pinch.
