Look: Perfectly clear gold with no head unless you pour aggressively.

Smell: Barely anything but vague corny malt. Adding a lime totally eliminates any smell but lime juice.

Taste: Extremely mild adjunct malt taste, like beer-flavored water. With a lime added, exactly the same but with a sour note and lime juice. Maybe add 0.25 points with the lime.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated water.

Overall: Extremely dull and boring. Adding a lime as per tradition is the only thing that makes it stand out.

I was in the mood for a refreshing light beer and, having enjoyed Corona years ago before getting into craft beer, I thought I’d revisit it. Popped open a 12 ounce bottle and put little lime slice in the neck.
Man was I in for a shock and disappointment. Grainy, watery, a hint of sweet malt, high carbonation, just generic AAL that no lime slice could improve.
Tossed it aside for a mediocre IPA. Whew.

Light, balanced or slightly sweet. Lacks character, but refreshing on a hot day w lime. It's lack of character is why it is good on a really hot day. No strong hop and not to heavy sweet.

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.
