473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for whatever Corona is going for these days.

Appearance - Aggressive pour yielded only 1/2 finger of fluffy white head which dissipated inside a minute. Pale golden straw color. Some wispy soapy residue left on top once the head is gone. Not terribly impressive. Some decent lacing left on the glass saves this a bit.

Smell - Sweet corn adjunct and absolutely nothing else. Aroma isn't too strong but a bit on the sickly sweet side. Almost a funky bubblegum smell.

Taste - Corn and bubblegum flavored water. No bitterness and rather thin tasting. It's not horrible but definitely very mediocre. Sort of a funky stale chewing gum aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Fairly thin but nothing really wrong here, Ok carbonation too. Thin bodied and watery feel.

Overall - This is a beer where I find the first one tolerable, but from there things go steadily downhill. No lime added here either, I imagine it may make it a little more palatable though.
