From the time I joined BeerAdvocate I've made it a point to drink beers I haven't had before. Recently I realized that there are plenty of beers I have tried before joining this site and have since. The more mainstream beers I've avoided rating, but here goes another one...the favorite of many - Corona Extra.

Out of the bottle the beer pours a very nice amber color, and I feel, if you hold it up to the light just right, you'll see an orange tinge to it. Unfortunately, it pours out almost no head (you really have to shake the bottle some to get a small head to appear, which then dissipates instantly. There's something about a beer with no head I just don't find appealing.

The smell is your standard hops, barley, and malt, nothing special, and the taste pretty much follows in the same vain. Mouthfeel was good - no stickiness, just the right amount of carbonation, and it downed quite easily. Overall, an average beer with really good marketing...

A - BIg growler-type bottle caught my eye in the gas station beer fridge. Pale yellow, slight fizz around the collar. Looks like Mexican beer.

S - MIneral notes of nickel and copper. Smells like a Mexi-lager brewed with well water and a bit more hops than is typical.

T - Fuller in flavor than "normal" Corona. Grains, corn, mineral notes. Quite a bit more hop than other brews from south of the border.

M - Light-medium in body. Definitely still a thirst-quencher, but a tad heavier in body. Although it's not dark, it reminds me of Negra Modelo in it's mouthfeel and body, and it shares some of those "suckin' on a penny" mineral notes.

I really thought that this was regular Corona in a really cool quart-sized bottle, and I bought it purely for the novelty factor. Turns out that this is like Corona-plus. A more medium bodied and much more flavorful lager. Maybe should be under the Vienna Lager style here on BA?
