1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear golden color, small white head that instantly disappeared. Very light body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Aroma is mostly corn. Light sweet and light bitter taste, no aftertaste at all. Very weak.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, 355ml. Bar before Champions League. Pours transparat, pale and clear as nothing I’ve ever had beer-wise before. No head. Aroma is corn, sour and disturbing. Not very plesant. Same goes for the flavor, weak palate, watery fell and overall sadness it leaves you with after having your first taste. Guess all that saves it from total disaster is the setting with good friends and football.

Bottle. Pours golden with a very quickly dissipating white head, like a soda. Aroma is sweet wort, grain, corn and cardboard. Taste is diluted wort and just a touch of bitterness. Light body.

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003
Quite possibly the most overated beer in the world. Tends to be the choice of "non beer-drinkers’ with a wedge of lemon or lime in the top BECAUSE IT DOESN’T TASTE LIKE BEER! Which defeats the purpose in the first place. Mexican piss, really.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ML bottle
Clear straw yellow color, very visible short lived carbonation. Bright white head that quickly falls to a ringed collar. Some spotty lacing.
Nose is a odd mixture of cardboard, cereal, and stewed corn. Not overly sweet though. More like cooked corn and cereal.
Taste is slightly sweet creamed corn and cereal. Actually pretty decent. Thin and watery, yea, but still holds it’s own well. No bitterness at all. Very alive carbonation and the beer is actually approachable.
Corona is tame, That is obvious but it is drinkable. You really going to want a DIPA in Cabo?? It is marketed perfectly. Sitting on a beach and not thinking about anything. Fair enough

Besides the light version of this beer, this might be the most watered down beer in the world. But if you say that you don’t enjoy a few of these with a lime in really hot weather, then your a liar.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I poured a 24oz can into a shaker glass. There was no clear freshness date. It cost $2.89 ($0.12 per ounce).
Appearance: Transparent pale gold hue with massive carbonation constantly visible. Pours to a small, bright white, soapy which manages to leave a surprising amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell: A general non-clean aroma, but nothing repulsive. Milled corn grits are noticeable.
Taste: Drinking Corona straight from the bottle with a lime wedge in the neck doesn’t give the drinker the true taste of the beer. All you really taste is beer-flavored lime juice. For the sake of this review I decided to try it from a can and pour it into a glass like every other beer. The result was surprisingly not terrible. The palette was more bland and boring than it was off-putting.
Upon my first swig, I was surprised to find a little bit of sweetness. Corona Extra doesn’t have the sharp tang sensation of corn like a lot of American macro adjunct lagers. It does have a bit of a yellow lollipop flavor, which I believe is an indication of oxidation. There is some corn syrup flavor as well, which might account for the sweet factor. It finishes rather weak with a watery sensation.
Drinkability: This might have been one of the most visibly effervescent beers I’ve ever seen, so I was surprised the mouthfeel to Corona Extra was rather tepid. It did go down smoothly, though, and there was little aftertaste to speak of. At only 4.6% ABV it’s a borderline light beer, which would also explain its mild palette.
