12oz bottle
Served in a pilsner glass

A - It is pale yellow with a generous portion of short-lived, white head. There are a lot of carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom.

S - Ah! The skunky smell of clear bottled beer. I guess I get some sweet corn in there, too.

T - It starts out skunky and has a acrid metallic finish. Yum!

M - It's like making love in a canoe. Damn near water.

O - It's in a clear bottle. It's from Mexico. It is craptacular.

Corona Light is like taking something that is already piss-poor and stripping away and little, tiny bit of dignity it might have left. So pale you could read a small-font novel through it; aroma is on par with dropping a handful of grains, corn, and a few nickels into a cup of water; the taste is like drinking said water cup; mouth feel is like shaking up a 7 up and putting your mouth around the opening of the bottle.

It's not good stuff. I mean, it's not offensive or off-putting or anything necessarily, but it's just not really "beer". Its utter absences of the most beer related aromas and tastes make it hard to judge this fairly. Even for beers of this style, there are many better.

If you're gonna waste your time, just get the regular Corona. Don't bother with the Light. It's already light. It doesn't need to be lighter. Any lighter and it's just going to float away.

A: Pours a crystal clear pale straw yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy bright white head that quickly reduces to a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal lacing is observed.

S: The predominant smell of this beer is a moderate aroma of skunk that can be detected as soon as the beer is opened and poured. There are also some light to moderate notes of adjunct malt sweetness. The smell is almost offensive with the amount of skunk in it.

T: This beer has a very light/mild flavor overall and there is almost nothing to note in the taste. Very light presence of adjunct malts (corn and rice) with just the lightest hint of bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Thin and watery.

O: Not a great beer or even a good one, I guess this is best drunk (if ever) in the hot sun at the beach for hydration - though I think I would personally prefer water. I hate the clear glass bottle as I'm sure that does not help with the skunky notes.

A: The beer is crystal clear straw yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin bright white head that quickly died down but never completely faded away, leaving a thick collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light aromas of adjunct malts and skunk in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the beer has light flavors of adjunct and grainy malts along with some hints of bitterness and skunk.
M: It feels very light-bodied and also very watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and wasn’t horrible but doesn’t have much of a taste. The clear bottle might high have something to do with the skunky nature.
