I recently had a bottle of Corona Light this weekend. It had a clear yellow appearance but did not smell very pleasant. In fact, it smelled almost musty. The taste was similarly musty but and very watery. It felt very light in my mouth and did not have any body at all. Overall I would rate this beer a 1.75. I was not impressed. It wasn't terrible with a Mexican food pairing but it still did not do much to help the poor taste.

A pint on tap as part of the (re?)introduction of this beer in keg form ... this is a good idea for a beer bottled in clear glass.

Appearance: Pours clear, thin-looking, and very pale yellow in color with a short-lived white head.

Smell: Contrary to many reviews of the bottled version, this was not particularly skunky or sulfuric. Instead, it had a faint aroma of light, bready malt.

Taste: very light, as advertised, featuring a touch of barley grain with a bit of corn and a hint of hops,

Mouthfeel: Very thin-bodied with a water feel, but given some life by the medium carbonation.

O: Not offensive but not much to like either. At least I got a free hat.

A - Pours the clearest golden I have ever seen with no head and no lacing.

S - It's pretty much all skunk.

T - Dry and skunky. The flavor quickly recedes and leaves nothing.

M - Extremely thin bodied, with medium carbonation.

O - Overall, terrible. I'm pretty sure the only beer I have ever had that is worse than this would have to be Steel Reserve.
