24 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint. Bottled Feb 22, 2013.

A: Pours a fizzy light yellowish amber with a 1 finger bubbly head that is quick to dissipate. Lots of visble carbonation. No lacing.

S: Even without the lime the aroma still reminds me of a citrusy lemon lime. A hint of skunkiness to it. Mostly malt.

T: Not a whole lot of flavor going on here but a non offensive beer. Standard american adjust corn taste. As with the aroma there is a bit of skunkiness once you burp.

M: Light body with decent carbonation. Fairly crisp finish. Real easy drinking.

Overall its always an easy drinking and refreshing beer. Perfect for the summer heat. Not the most flavorful but beats some of the other AAL's.

This beer is on my top beer to drank in the summer and maybe of all time! Others do not like this beer but in my 20 years of dranking it does not disapoint on being refreshing and taste. It is crisp and clean! I The taste of heaven!

Apperance:Gloden like beautiful gold watch forever, the retention is excellent.

Smell: Very Smooth and refreshing has hops and malts.

Taste: This is very smooth and refrshing beer. It has no after taste but with a lime even taste better then all craft beers. Who would thnk that !

Mouthfull: very refreshing, crips, leave's a pleasant taste, medium body and medium carbonation in it.

Overall People either hate or love it. I am on the side of love it! The price is not cheap even in California but I will always buy it. By far the best Mexican beer on the market!


D: World class.

Ok, I know that Corona Extra is not technically a good beer. It has a generic yellow color reminiscent of Bud Light, it doesn't have much in the way of aroma and what is there has a slightly skunky aspect to it. As far as taste goes, it's just ok, and for the price there are a LOT of better beers you could get. However, that being said, I will admit that I enjoy this beer when it is served very cold with fresh lime on a hot day, and it's light and crisp feel are probably it's best attribute. .
