Had this one straight from the bottle. Fizzy, light, and clear, with a grainy, corn aroma and grainy flavor. Not as skunky as I thought it would be, although these went right from cardboard case to enclosed cooler so they weren't really lightstruck. Clean finish. Not much there. Inoffensive, forgettable, and wet. Not something I'd buy, but there's worse options if it's being offered for free.

I used to like Corona back in college. It feels like another lifetime. Pee yellow color and grainy, sour, nose. Flavor is mild barley tea with very little recognizable beer flavor. I want to mention that I did not pay for this but filched from my Dad's fridge, whare it was going begging. Very carbonated. Kid of what one would expect from Corona Light.

Slightly bitter and a weird sort of sour taste. Not offensive but no need to have this again

I drank this out of a teku glass.
L. Looks great. Clear, light side of golden, white frothy head lasts a minute and leaves a lasting ring, visible moderate carbonation gently streaming up. (4.25)
S. Smells like clean hay, undercooked corn, sweet creamed corn, hay-like bitterness. Nothing too overwhelming. (3.00)
T. Water, lightly sweetened grain, light spicy/grassy bitterness then joins, bitterness increases as it warms. Flavors are light and simple but not even that bad. (3.25)
F. Pretty light body, leaning toward medium, lower than expected carbonation, pretty smooth, not dry. (3.75)
O. Not great, but balanced and refreshing. Flavors are muted to the point where I could have more than one. Cheers ! ! ! (3.25)

Corona Light brewed by Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V., with an ABV of 4.10 % This Light Lager pours out a nice golden amber color with a thin white head. The head of this brew goes away fast. No lacing to speak of, really faint in the carbonation department. The is Skunkie , this is due to the clear bottle. You do pick up on some grains and malts in the smell as well if you can get pasted the skunked smell. Now for the taste, it is light and crisp. The skunkie taste is there but it is not to bad. The body of Corona Light is well light, there is not much to it. To be honest I a fan of light brews but this one is not worth much. The mouth feel is Light Clean And Refreshing. Overall I'm giving Corona Light a Soild 3 out of 5. Not the best I ever had but not the worst either. There are better light brews on the market. But if you must try it go for it.

Bought a 6-pack from Long's $7.49
Light clear golden color
High carbonation
Light mouthfeel
Light malt taste, slight tart taste, not much more than water
Overall slightly better than drinking plain water on a hot day. Would not buy again.

Had at Butchies 50th birthday bash with Donnie Iris. Weren't many choices of beer, so had to slum. This is one step from water. Only reason to drink this is because it was cold.

I had one left in the fridge by my father in law. I was going to pour it out but decided to give it a try anyhow.

Pours a hydrated man's pee color (I know, I'm being a jerk). It is very pale and very clear.

The aroma is of harsh chemical to me, though there is some kind of sweet, bready aroma trying to push through.

Taste is sweet up front, quickly dissipating to a bland chemical flavor. There is nothing in this profile that is trying to rescue it.

Feel is thin to watery, crisp and a little seltzery.

Not impressed. I suspect this beer is all marketing (you know, summer beaches, chilling with bikini-clad babes, palm trees) The reality is It's going down the drain along with the rest of sewerage (I know, I 'm being a jerk)

Had 2 bottles at a friends house for game 5 of Stanley Cup, Pens vs Preds. I have not had a light beer in years possibly decades. I found the beer fresh with flavor. Overall, not to shabby. This is not a beer I would go out of my way to drink but if given a bottle, I would not turn it down and even enjoy the beer.
