Bottle looks cool, but that is nearly all. If you want to drink mexican beer, buy desperados!

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Looks like piss, taste like...well, lime if you stuff one in the neck. Rates right down there with BMC. Drinkable if really cold.

Corona Extra what? Clear bottle? Stick a lime in it? Is it even a beer? Its ok, worth trying I guess, but definitely not worth the hype or the price. Not a teriible brew, but its not a good beer either. (In fact I argue against the practice of referring to Corona as beer)

Alcoholik (4) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2003 does not count
This is no amazing beer, however it is not without its charm. The water taste is complimented quite nicely by a twist of lime and it goes down easily with most fatty fried meals. skunky nose and over all a typical american creation

Yep, skunky, watery has nothing on American mass produced beers. Needs a lime and salt added to make it worth it.

I think it's kind of refreshing on a really hot day. A bit skunky, but easy to drink. It's no masterpiece, but I've had worse.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2003 Not good, not bad; I'll still take one of these over a Budweiser any day. Watery and a little bit sweet. Crisp and clean. Neat color but looks almost artifically gold. Don't listen to anything anybody tells you about the water in here.

I always get the urge to drink a vew of these every now and again. I drink em straiht out of the bottle because I like the way it comes out. A fashion, showy beer for when everyone is drinking macros. I buy the 24oz ones at the gas station once in a while.

Slightly skunked, thin, watery. Somewhat sweet with a slight dry hop finish. For chugging on a hot day (like water).

The aroma is a bit skunky, and slightly sweet. The appearance is a clear gold, maybe a bit watery. The flavor is sweet, and I swear even though I sampled it without the lime it still tasted like there was a lime in it (must be a conditioned response). The beer is crisp and easy to drink. Overall not really that bad, I think I like it better than the American mega brews.
