I highly recomend never pouring this beer in a glass. The lime contributes the only discernable flavour of note in this beer.

Very nice job of marketing this swill to convince the uneducated it is the perfect beer. No worries, just you and your beer and a beautiful beach. Yeah right, if that was the only time people drank this stuff I would never see it again. There are two reasons why it got the 2 rating it did:
I assumed you are putting a lime into it and for some reason I like painted bottles.

In the summer heat, nothing beats a Corona with a slice of lime. It’s really just a substitute for drinking water. Sure, its color resembles something you’ve seen in a urinal. And so what if it has no taste! Overall, this is the perfect beer to enjoy at the beach.

Crisp, Clean, no hops or taste. High CO2. Better with a lime. At least then it has some taste

This beer is a package deal you have to have lime and mexican food while your dinking it. If you don’t have the combination of the three don’t bother drinking it.By the way I’m rating it as a package because I won’t drink it alone.

Slightly non-descript beer with little flavour or aroma. Nice I suppose for drinking on a warm day. The one plus point is it doesn’t have the bad aftertaste of a Bud.

This isn’t tasty at all. I didn’t enjoy this. Extremely weak. I don’t understand why people love this. Sure it goes down easy, it’s because you can’t taste anything. One of those beers you’d down to get hammered.

In my experience, I prefer this after a a long day of snowboarding and dinner than by itself, but even then, it’s nothing much to write home about. By itself, it’s a little dry going down.

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2011 Rerate Duped into buying this because it was labeled Corona Familiar in a 24 oz bottle at Habersham in Savannah. Medium gold pour, white head. Typical corny lager flavor, some graininess. Aroma has some we paper bag essence - but not putrid. Original 2.2 I rated without the lime - however, without the lime this beer is barely drinkable. But at happy hour at a trendy bar - image is everything!
