L-Light yellow...clear...minimal head... lot of carbonation bubbles.

S-Fruity..apples, pears...

T-A little minerally....slight fruitiness...not a lot of flavor...bland

F-Spritzy...on the light side of light...high carbonation keeps it from feeling super thin..

O-Below average adjunct light lager. Did a blind taster with this, Michelob Light and Hamms Light and this was the clear #3. Would reach for many, many light beers ahead of this one.

12 ounce bottle at a Mexican restaurant. Pours a pale gold with a decent white head. Mild aroma of grain and grass. Taste is similar. Went well with the meal. On a hot day you would need a bunch of these.

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. Kind 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.
