Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a very light golden color with a medium head that fades almost instantaneously to leave almost no lacing.

Smell – The aroma is a mix of skunk, paper, and corn. Not to appetizing.

Taste – The taste begins watery with a very stale bready flavor. While not too appealing at first, the flavor only diminishes from there. Flavors of a stale corn flavor come to the tongue along with a papery and skunky flavor. In the end a very unpleasant flavor is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – Thin and watery with a high level of carbonation. While the carbonation helps hide the bad flavor the wateriness is just a little too intense. Somehow it seems even more water then water itself.

Overall – I have always been told when you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all, so…… (although I probably already said more bad things then I should have, but…)

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Completely translucent pale hue. Basically non-existant white head.

Aroma: Skunked macro-lager smell. Just a hint of citrus if you really search for it.

Taste: Surprisingly clean tasting. No where near as skunked as the aroma would have you believe. Pretty watered down though. Not much to taste.

Mouthfeel: Crisp. Watery. Highly drinkable only if it's right out of the fridge but leaves the tongue a little dry.

Final Thoughts: Halfway through drinking the glass I added a lemon wedge. It improved the taste a tad, but really doesn't make a difference to the score. This is my first time having a Corona Light and it goes right up there with the blandest beers I've tasted.

look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

A: Some one could have urinated in the bottle and I would not have known. Incredibly pale and clear yellow.

S: Smells like skunky wet grass. Terrible.

T: Tastes like very watered down Miller or Coors. Slightly sweeter/citrusier with more skunk. No flavors standout.

M: High carbonation. Wet. Refreshing.

O: This is better than Cornona Extra. Because light beers are supposed to be light.
