Little skunky aroma. Pale yellow color, white head, few lace. No flavors (didn't add the lime), watery, short finish. Must be refreshing when you're in Mexico with 40' Celsius, but over here in Holland even in the sun it doesn't do it.

If a beer requires a lime to make it palatabl then its not a good sign. When the sun's blazing overhead I'll grab one only if the lime is there as well.

I shall be the 700th rater of Corona. Let me first qualify my rating by saying that the body in question was plucked from an icy tub, and was complimentary from my hotel, in Dallas. This was an essay in the evils of the clear bottle. Here in Dallas, I'm reckoning that the beer was fresher -- and it had none of the skunky quality that Corona has 900 miles to the east in Tallahassee -- just the Mexican-American Standard smell that say, Bohemia has. It did have a corn quality, but it was like sweetish hominy, rather than Fritos. The slice of lime definitely makes the difference. The appearance is rated highly for the painted bottle. When the label was first marketed in N. Florida ca. 1986, it was proudly emblazoned on tanktops all along Panama City Beach. Charitable appearance marks for savvy marketing, and for the ladies of my youth who wore those tank tops without brassieres.

Mexican night tonight. I now know why I also don't like this 'cuisine'. Sloppy, messy and unfilling. At least it wasn't skunky.

I really like this beer. It's a little skunky, but it goes down really well. I suggest a lime, definately... better than Budweiser for sure!

NEEDS a lime to make it tolerable. Nothing too exciting about this beer-- a good alternative to Bud Light in a pinch!

After a couple weeks of sampling such gems as Kalamazoo stout and Old Peculier, drinking Corona is really "slumming". Skunky, limey aroma. Crystal clear piss appearance. Lacking in flavour, but drinkable in Cancun on the beach. Include lime to kill taste.

Golden Yellow, gotta have the lime, at least for the first one, but after that let it slide to much citric acid. Funny, but i liked this beer a lot more when i was in high school.

Clear glass in the burning sun. No real flavour of its own, a little sour and very thin. No hops to speak of. Better get that lime in there quick!

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 Once upon a time, this was my favorite beer. Boy, how times have changed and tastes have gotten more sophisticated! This simply does not have the taste, color or smell of a Class-A beer. Yes, it tastes better with a lime, but, c'mon, this is beer, folks, not cocktails. Mexican beer sucks and this is the worst one. Cave Creek Chili Beer minus the chili pepper.
