Corona. No introduction needed. Side poured with standard speed from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance – Very pale golden yellow with a couple bubbles on top which are supposed to resemble the head. Minimal lacing.

Smell – The nose honestly reminds me of urine that hasn’t quite soaked all the way into the carpet yet. Skunky with a mild grain hint

Taste – Slight malt hints, corn and grain, very similar to your standard American Adjunct lagers. I hear the flavor is enhanced with a slice of lime, but I’m not one to fruit a beer.

Mouthfeel – Thin, mostly water, slammable. The finish tastes sort of like the smell.

Overall – A good beer for hanging out at the beach, giving to girls with a slice of lime in it, very summertime-esque. It’s not a good beer, but the advertising and general attitude towards the beer are fun I guess.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow in color with some light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall soapy bright white head that quickly reduces to nothing but a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal lacing is observed.

S: Aromas of skunk with a slight hint of adjunct malts - corn and grain.

T: There is a moderate flavor of sweet corn and grain adjuntc malts and very little bitterness. Also, slightly metallic but not sure why since it came form a glass bottle into a glass.

M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Thin and watery.

O: This is a pretty poor beer in my opinion and I understand why every other time I have had one served to me, I had it with a lime - you need something to change the flavor on this beer. Not one I will be having again anytime soon.
