Throw in a lime for a good time. Way too damned expensive. Not too bad. You can definately get get better beer for less.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2003 Looks just as American standard in the bottle as it does in a glass. Nothing to be said about head, and lacing falls down the glass like a bowling ball from an airplane. Intense bitter hops with skunk smell. Flavor is bitter american standard. I choose not to rate this with a lime because that is covering up the rottenness of the beer. Very nice carbonated watery feeling drinking. A nice attempt at American standard, much better than what most macroproduction American comanies can do. Drinking this reminds me of my trip to Cancun, so itís kinda nastalgic in a way. UPDATE: Good god how could I stand this crap?! This is one of the worse mass drank beers available bar-none. Why is it so expensive?!?!?!

Itís not as bad as everybody says it is, and in the 1980ís I thought that a Corona with lime and salt was the height of beer drinking. So I try to forgive people who do it now, I see them in bars putting the lime in, some of them have this trick where they put the lime in and turn the bottle upside down with the their thumb over the top. I guess this is to evenly distribute the lime flavor throughout the beer. They always look like they feel incredibly slick when they do this too. Yeah, I drank a bunch of Corona the other night, but I didnít do the thumb in the bottle trick.

Easy-drinkin, smooth if not plain taste. Everyone raves about putting limes in this shit, but in my opinion, you donít put fruit in your beer, so needless to say, i havenít tried it yet.

Let some other fool stock his fridge with this and find a new beer. This beer needs more then a couple limes to be drinkable. Personally I like to convert into a Superbeer by pouring out the neck then adding 2 shots of Bacardi Limon and a lime. You now have something that is still watered down but has a stout like ABV.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2011 Had this without the damn lime for the first time. Really allows the corny aftertaste to come through and show up how bland it is.

It was ice cold and lonely in my refrigerator. Why did I drink it without the lime? Ouch!

similiar to the Japenesse beers in that the flavour is so much better when eating the local food. Slip in some lemon or lime and not a bad brew.

Straw colow with a wispy white quickly diminishing head. Aroma of straw, and light grain. Minimal flavors of malt sweetness with only a touch of bitterness. Unfortunately an american standard.
