The problem with this site is that we're all beer connoisseurs so this piss swill is beneath us.
I get that, and Corona Light would by no stretch of the imagination be my preferred choice. With that said I think it's more useful to judge beers as to how well they rate based on their style. As far as light beers go I find Corona Light much cleaner than say Coors Light. For a light beer I'd rate Corona Light 2nd to Amstel Light in drinkability while maintaining low carbs and calories with a respectable alcohol content for the style.

Thin and fizzy, goes down easy without the offensive aftertaste of many macro brews. If you're on a diet and looking for a good session beer, I think this is a solid choice.

Fairly refreshing beer.. would be nice if I was sitting in the sand on the beach, or lounging poolside. But, I'm not- I'm sitting inside in January while it's 20 something degrees out.

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.
