A good alternative to water if you are stuck in Mexico. Otherwise, forget it. I usually eat my burritos with Negra Modelo on the side.

This beer is only popular because of its marketing campaign. I'm surprised its slightly more expensive counterpart (Sol) has not caught on. You have to wonder about a beer that needs a lime to compliment it. Yuppies, enjoy. Beer lovers, stick with Tecate or DE if you want Mexican.

I know true beer aficianados put this beer down, but with spicy foods and the hot summer days I find it hard to beat. Not a world class beer by any means, but very refreshing.

An incredibly boring and skunky beer. If you could imagine water with yellow food coloring that smelled like corn and a drop of hops, you'd have corona pegged. Theres nothing here to taste or to write about. Garbage.

Everyone's had a Corona. Does in fact taste better with a lime in it. This is definitely one of those beers that you can put back rather quickly if your not careful. Not much flavor except for the lime you throw in it.

Bottle. Served in a bottle with a slice of lime in it. Cold but tasteless . I enjoyed the slice of lime more, didnt finish the beer. Trendy and shallow

Simple pale yellow, carbonated but not much head. Simple and light. Not nearly as bad in my opinion as so many reviews.

Bottle looks cool, but that is nearly all. If you want to drink mexican beer, buy desperados!

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Looks like piss, taste like...well, lime if you stuff one in the neck. Rates right down there with BMC. Drinkable if really cold.

Corona Extra what? Clear bottle? Stick a lime in it? Is it even a beer? Its ok, worth trying I guess, but definitely not worth the hype or the price. Not a teriible brew, but its not a good beer either. (In fact I argue against the practice of referring to Corona as beer)
