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.

Look - Kept in the bottle, clear straw color lots of visible carbonation
Smell - Very very faint grain, thats it
Taste - Dry, grainy, sightly abrasive, faint corn, finishes crisp with next to no bitterness
Feel - Light bodied, super carbonated, dry, refreshing

Overall - By no means a bad beer, just fairly average. Above average when it's free and comes with a lime wedge.

Beautiful bottle with a beautiful yellow color but I can't say the same thing for the taste. Literally no taste but it is smooth when it comes to feel probably because of its 4.6 ABV. Very plain taste, malty smell, avarage beer.

It smells musty. Without a lime, it does really have much taste profile. But drop the lime in the bottle and it takes me back to dive bars in my early 20's. It's a guilty pleasure.
