Pee yellow body with lots of bubbles rising to a thin bubbly head. Smells sweet and cardboardy (yeah, i know, no such word). Bit of corn sweetness in the mouth upfront. Some oxidation, though light, in there as well. Not as bad as I thought it would be. Smooth and easy drinking, but completly unchallenging.

In my earlier days I had some corona while eating mass quantities of Mexican food in San Antonio. At this time it was ok. Good to quench the fire of the hot salsa. After drinking some decent beer though, this beer simply must be rated as poor. Watery, fizzy, no flavor, no taste, no color, not even much alcohol. What is the use.

With lime, this is a very refreshing beer. For the beach, pool or hot tailgate, I’ll take this over any of the American macros. It doesn’t have much flavor but its not supposed to. Never had it without lime or lemon and don’t ever plan to.

Corona is a poser/gringo beer. I prefer any Mexican beer that doesn’t require a lime.

Any beer thqat requires fruit in it to taste close to platable sucks ass. A last resort beer

A summer beer out by the pool. Must have a lime or it is undrinkable

I am frequently given to wonder if the customary slice of lime is mainly used to masque the taste of this beer, or perhaps clean it out of your mouth quickly so that you can forget.

I don’t think I’ve ever had one without a lime in it, and I don’t ever plan to. This beer has one purpose and one purpose alone - to quench your thirst while lying on the beach/by the pool, thus getting drunk and dehydrated. It is a small niche, but it does its job well.
