The only time I ever had this stuff was when my dad and his friends would give me his leftovers. A guy he lived with never bought any other beer, so he'd always have huge cases of the stuff and offload the rest on me.

Cornona is overall inoffensive, but didn't leave any real impression on me. Very unremarkable overall, I'm sure it's better with lime and filling the neck with tequila, maybe I'll try that someday.

I had this in Cancun so it was fairly fresh, and even under the Mexican sun it was pretty godawful. I can only imagine how bad this stuff is when it's skunked. I enjoy a refreshing AAL but without a lime this stuff is barely drinkable, especially compared to Modelo Especial which is pretty decent. Even in the price range there's way better out there like PBR or Banquet, I can't see myself ever drinking this crap again.

Well obviously at it's price it's not going to have the feel or the taste of a quality lager. But what really offends me is the disgustingly artificial sweetness it holds. With some lemon or lime it actually is pretty drinkable cold, but halfway through the bottle it starts to get pretty gross, even for a bargain beer. The look is pretty awful, but that's more or less a nonfactor with a beer like Corona. It's actually pretty decent to mix into a citrus-y drink, but overall I think modelo and even more so Dos Equis is a much better bet for your money on cheap mexican beer.

compared to its peers, this aint bad. not sure how its taken me until now to review it, ive had hundreds of these if not more in my life, but a vacation to sunny florida now might skew this one a little bit favorably. feet in the sand, fresh cut lime wedged into the can, and a long drag of this yields instant refreshment, less chemical and metallic weirdness and cheapness than i remember, and rushing carbonation and finishing dryness let it fade at a good pace. its one of the few beers out there that i think is enhanced nicely by the lime, its a little dreary without it, but a little of that green zesty acidity and we are in business. perhaps only a pacifico demands a lime more than this one. it warms up pretty poorly, with some of the adjunct elements diminishing what i liked about it when it was ice cold, which is its cleanness and quickness. i taste no hops, no lager yeast at all, and very little malt, its just yellow water, but its still better than some other yellow waters, and in a beachside context, this will probably always have some value. i drank a few ipas before this one that just didnt take me where this one did. im sure ill have a few of these each year in a warm climate, and im actually very thankful for that...

Only idiots who never drank any tasty lagers would continue to support and drink this garbage. Let this crap come up to room temperature so you can taste that nasty slimy artificially cloyingly sweet corn syrup slide down your gullet. This is close to undrinkable. If you want a decent Mexican brew then try some Montejo, Bohemia, or even some Modelo. I think you know where I am going with this on the grade scale. Cheers! D- (60-64) score range

Bottle to pint glass. No lemon/lime.

Look: yellow, small white head, fades and has poor retention.
Aroma: skunk.
Taste: better than the aroma, but you'll still want the lemon or lime.
Feel: light body, low to medium carbonation.

Better than some mass produced beers, but not most.
