Ok, I know this is a screwy rating, but I have my reasons. I was served the reviewed Corona in a dive blues bar (complete with lime wedge at the top of the bottle) having a great time and the beer just seemed so right for the occasion. Hence my 4 for overall to reflect the beer’s appropriateness for the experience. It went well with the beef brisket sandwiches being served “on the patio”.

Although it's usually skunky a cold corona with a lime wedge hits the spot sometimes.

Unusual amount of haters leaving reviews. Corona is refreshing, simple, easy to drink, and a great Mexican beer overall.

Ah....have to right? What is it good for? Hor summer days. yes....had it in the bottle with a lime and enjoyed gauchy goodness. light as a feather and can basically drink a dozen of them and still function quite well. A Canadian’s way to escape winter and herald summer! Top shelf? Well...no.....it’s gauchy goodness for goodness sake. Now hop aboard that tourist train and down one today.

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).
