COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

This is a medium-bodied beer with a pleasing, yellow color. This beer is zesty and crisp, is 4.6% alcohol by volume, and is reputedly brewed with all natural ingredients: water, barley, hops and yeast. You can buy this beer in Germany because it meets beer purity laws. (Hmmm... incidentally, the beer industry in Mexico was started by German expatriates. I guess the same thing can be said about America as well.) This beer is very popular in California, especially here in Los Angeles where most people drink it with a wedge of lime squeezed into the neck of the bottle. This beer is brewed by Cerveceria Grupo Modelo in Mexico; this brewery is also known for its Modelo and Pacifico brand beers, which do not have the cult, mass-market appeal that Corona has. Corona is the #1 import beer in America.

Not my personal favorite, without a lime or something, I really can’t stand it, but when I drank it; it was free so who can really complain.

Wattered-down yuppie brew. It’s overpriced and doesn’t taste that great. The lime is used so that it doesn’t taste bad. I can handle it, but it reminds me of Miller High Life. This isn’t one of my favorites. I don’t really understand the appeal of this one, but like any beer, it’s an aquired taste. A friend gave me a 12 pack once for some work that I did for him, and it was good for a nice buzz. Drank them all in an evening.

This is not a good beer. It does not offer much taste. It is good that you drink it out of the bottle, because in a glass it would look more like apple juice.

Belongs to the preppy crowd. Heavy carbonation and a good head with nice lace. The lime is really necessary to add to the flavor.

You certainly look like a pimp sipping on Corona at the bar. Nice import but not as good as Pacifico.

Buy a sixer and some lime, serve ice cold on a hot day with some friends. One or two are nice but the fad fizzles out after that.
