Unless the commercials have sucked you in, there’s no reason to ever try this beer. Too many guys and girls took Spring Break in Mexico and made this beer an unpassing fad. It has nothing notable about it at all. When the juice of a lime makes your beer taste better, you’ve got bigger issues on your hands.

This isn’t a terrible beer, but by no means a good one. It tastes somewhat like a slightly more sophisticated Budweiser. I would prefer Bud over it though because it is cheaper. Whatever though this beer sucks.

Make sure to drink this cold. Difficult to drink by itself; it must be with a meal. It’s not all bad with Mexican food.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 We called it the ’gateway beer’ because even if one didn’t like beer, one would like Corona, and quickly move on to other beers. I have moved on, but it was my first, of course, and so I need to give it its due. Refreshing, light and dangerously drinkable. (6/3/7/5/13)
Rerate (7/27/07): What the hell was I thinking? Pale yellow color, a thick, rapidly dissipating white bubbly head, stale nose of corn and sickly sweet hoppiness, drinkable but like all other pale lagers, this one is best reserved for when there’s not much else around.

not bad with a lime, but not that good a beer overall.

UPDATED: NOV 15, 2004 man this beer sucks. Stale beer. ameliorated by the fact that it is mostly water. nothing good about this beer. It looks very pale, only a small tinge of yellow with little to no, fizzy head. Aroma of skunked beer to the max. No hops, no malt. Flavor is unclean, thin, bland, watery and adjunt ridden. Body is extra light, fizzy. Difficult to drink when warm.

Gave off a skunky smell when I opened this, but turned out to be not so bad as I thought. Light malt taste, nice gold color, and a quick profile. Overall thin and nothing special.

The only way I like Corona is if it has a lime in it - that way it tastes like lime juice - and I really don’t even like lime juice - so basically this is just a bad beer all around.
