Just slightly better than the Corona Light, a little more flavor and body (but not much more). Same light yellow color, mild head, fairly high carbonation. Tastes of fruit and grain, and improved significantly when consumed with a lime slice. Crisp finish although slightly sour aftertaste. Good for days at the beach/pool or with spicy Mexican food.

Looks a watered down pale yellow. OK carbonation, Head lasted seconds. Smells like faint malt, cereal grains. Taste is bland and not well balanced. This feels OK. If you were super thirsty You may want this instead of a glass of water. Tastes almost skunked while being fresh. Lastly,clear bottles are really dumb to use for beer. I am sure this does not help the skunk factor.

It looks and tastes like a diet beer but has about 150% of the calories. They may use a chemical to keep down the skunk flavor developed by sun exposure in its clear bottle, but it doesn't quite work. Actually the off skunk flavor that can develop after long exposure may add to its character. Not bad after strenuous exercise iff icy cold. How it got to #10 in the world market is a mystery. i'd rather have a Coors Light with almost 2/3 the carbs.

The only time I ever had this stuff was when my dad and his friends would give me his leftovers. A guy he lived with never bought any other beer, so he'd always have huge cases of the stuff and offload the rest on me.

Cornona is overall inoffensive, but didn't leave any real impression on me. Very unremarkable overall, I'm sure it's better with lime and filling the neck with tequila, maybe I'll try that someday.

I had this in Cancun so it was fairly fresh, and even under the Mexican sun it was pretty godawful. I can only imagine how bad this stuff is when it's skunked. I enjoy a refreshing AAL but without a lime this stuff is barely drinkable, especially compared to Modelo Especial which is pretty decent. Even in the price range there's way better out there like PBR or Banquet, I can't see myself ever drinking this crap again.
