Perfect with Lime and Mexican food. Other than that, it’s decent to drink due to it’s smoothness. I enjoy drinking this beer often, but I have to knock it down a bit due to the fact that it can’t support itself without Lime.

From a bottle, no lime! This isn’t the beer I remember drinking back in the day when Corona was classified as a classy beer, however, I was a youngster then, and a Mexican beer with a slice of lime was pretty special! Interestingly it smells quite limey without the lime but that’s surely the power of (my own) suggestion! Light, easy drinking, nondescript and relatively refreshing.

Ehh. Mexican lager. Good on a hot day. Not a thing I'm into. Like and salt a must. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale golden with a white head - sweet aroma of mlats and maize - some malts in the body, with small hints of bitterness - Short sweet finish - This was boring

For shits and giggles, let’s do this. Let’s not speak of the numerous amount of times I’ve had this out of the bottle and a fair amount of times I’ve had this with the lime in it, but let’s sit down and talk about this beer. I’ve had this in a pint glass and pilsener glasses several times and there was barely any difference. The appearance was a super clear yellow color with a vast array of different sized carbonated bubbles rising to fill a rapidly dieing bubbly white head. There was barely any lacing and what there was just slid into the body. The smell was basically just some sweetened cooked corn. The taste was the same and it was watery all around. The palate sat very light and allowed a great deal of sessionability about it. Overall, it’s a pale lager that’s extremely light. Honestly, this one doesn’t do much for me but there isn’t really anything disgusting about it either.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a thin white head that disappears almost immediately with no lacing. Clear pale straw color with some streaming carbonation. Aroma: slight bit of skunk at first, then white bread, corn, and grassy hops. Mouthfeel: light and watery with a mostly dry finish. Flavor: corn sweetness, grassy hops, and some white bread, echoing the aroma. Overall: not offensive. My biggest gripe with this beer is that it costs much more than it is worth. Plenty of other options that taste just as good for half the price.

Review: Bottle of Corona Extra lager, 4.6%ABV One of the beers to drink when it’s summer, Corona is a light beer that has a great refreshing taste, especially in the hot sun. The flavours are not overwhelming making the beer go down smooth and easily. It’s a beer that everyone can drink and very suitable for a party. No bloated feeling after drinking a few Corona’s. The appearance has a clear pale straw yellow body. After pouring a small white head appears that dissipates very quickly. Not much lacing. It has a mild, clean, subtle lager aroma, that smells of light, sweet cornbread Corona’s very light in taste, mild, clean with no bitterness and has a rather thin tasting watery feel. It’s flavour is minimal, but on a hot day it quenches the thirst.
