Drank from a 12 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Downtown Wine & Spirits, Somerville, MA
Served in a pint glass

The beer poured a crystal clear, pale straw yellow and was topped by a near one-finger, fluffy, bright white crown that quickly fell to a foamy ringlet. Streaks of lacing clung to the glass.

The nose contained notes of grainy, husky malts. Mild skunk. Touch of sulfur. Grassy hops appeared as the beer warmed.

There was more going on in the flavor profile than I anticipated. Crisp and grainy with grassy, noble hop notes. Touch of sulfur/skunk. Hints of lemon. More grainy malts and earthy hops appeared in the finish. A surprising amount of bitterness lingered on my palate.

The mouthfeel was thin, light and spritzy. Seltzer-like. Slightly frothy on the palate.

Even amongst American adjunct lagers, people really seem to hate on Corona. I, however, found it to be rather unoffensive and noticeably more flavorful than many of its American counterparts. Perhaps getting a fresh bottle, keeping it out of direct sunlight and holding off on that lime is key to enjoying this.
