This beer has its niche, but its very small. Think beach surrounded by beautiful women...that is all.

One of the greatest public-relations promotions in history! This used to be the cheapest of the cheap Mexican imports. Then the brewers got wise and got a high-powered American ad agency to turn this lightweight into a commercial juggernaut. Great business foresight---horrible beer for the money...Drinkable? Sure...Light...fizzy. Tastes fine ice-cold. A fine imported ’premium’ beer? Can you say ’Fraud’?

Ice cold and fresh lime required. Corona is what it is: a pleasant alternative to american lagers because it’s sooo light in taste. As I’ve said before, no taste is better than bad taste. The lime provides most of the flavor and with it corona can be a refreshing hot-weather beer. Attractive bottling and effective marketing can make this a fun beer.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2003 Bottled: Not much to it. Better than Sol, but not much. Fresh and tasty when served with a lime.

on a hot day with a lime this is the best ’lawnmower’ beer out there.

Corona is a good beer substitute. Women will usually drink it. Drop in a lemon or lime wedge to give it taste. Watery, but good on a hot day.

Defintely a summer-only beer. I like it with lemon or lime and they are nice and watery for the hot weather. Not necessarily a great beer, but I seem to drink plenty of them on hot evenings.

Girls like it. That’s the only good thing about this Mexican piss water.

Corona is some good stuff..If you got the money, pick up a case of Corona.

I’ve had mexican beers that are worse, but this is by no means a huge improvement. If you put enough lime in it, maybe you can convert it to a sort of bitter margarita, until you find some beer.
