12oz bottle undated poured into a can glass at fridge temp. This bottle came from a closed 12 pack so light damage is not a factor. The beer is straw colored and bright. The head is white, short lived and leaves no lacing. The aroma is slight grain and more specifically corn. The taste follows with a corny malt base, no bitterness and a very subtle taste approaching tart on the end. The mouthfeel is good for AAL with lots of carbonation, a hint of oily slickness and moderately dry finish. Overall, okay. I wouldn't buy this regularly due to price point, but I have had many AAL with many more flaws. Just for fun, I squeezed and dropped a lime wedge in after my review. It certainly makes a difference, but whether or not it's a welcome change, depends on your tastes.

The color is a pale amber, clear and carbonated. The smell is mild, nothing offensive but also nothing particularly great. The taste is very mild, but actually quite good. No discernible hops, nothing pungent, just a lite aftertaste of grain.
The feel of this beer is where it shines. Corona Extra has to be one of the most refreshing beers you can find. It goes down like water, smooth, but with a decent amount of carbonation. It is probably my favorite beer to drink on a hot day.
I know, it won't put hair on your chest, and it probably won't be noteworthy to most. It's just a Mexican beer that is great on a hot day.
