I see why they recommend to drink this with a slice of lime, it corresponds well with the skunk.
This is a good bit below some of the boring, but drinkable american Lagers i had like MGD.
Also why go through the lengths of all the adjuncts and edibles to ensure the Beer staying stable and clear and then making that for naught by putting it in a clear bottle?

From notes 12/9/11: Pours a clear yellow straw producing 2 fingers of shortlived, white head which leaves little lace as it recedes. Aroma is corn, grain, lemon and grass. Taste is corn, lager yeast, thin lemon, grass and honey with more alcohol presence than expected from a 4.6 ABV, Mouthfeel is light-moderate bodied with moderate carbonation; watery and thin. Best suited to be paired with food or when mowing grass.

Not bad for a light beer. They should sell this at football/hockey games instead of the bottom shelf domestic stuff. I bet it would outsell them.

Ugh! Never again. Fast and furious made me try one. Smells like walking into a nursing home. Not a day on the beach.

Cerveza popular, casi sin amargor, de cuerpo ligero y a gusto personal, resulta acuosa. Es una cerveza en una versión muy pobre. Es bebida mas que nada por jóvenes o inexpertos.

I spent a lot of time in my early 20's drinking this crappy beer. I did not know a good beer until I tried something else, you drink this brew for effect and nothing more, if you are looking for quality for the love of god go with Modelo!

Every poor soul has had Corona, there's a reason it needs lime and salt to really 'pop' When Trump said Mexico wasn't sending its best and brightest he was talking about Beer and Corona specifically. They managed to import Montezuma's revenge and market it to middle aged suburbanites who wear flip flops everywhere they go.

By itself... not that great... but put a line wedge in with the juice and some pulp from the lime while its ice cold... and its wonderful. Drinking one as I type this review.

Corona Extra used to be a good cheap beer. But, now it tastes like yeast. The aftertaste isn't as strong as cheap Australian beer (VIC Bitter, etc) but it is still unpleasant. Drinking this beer is a chore.
