My #1 Beach Beer. Totally undrinkable without a lime squeeze and a couple shakes of salt (the 6 for flavor includes these two adjuncts - otherwise it would be a 1). Toss in the fruit and the sodium, though, and you've got a refreshing bev for a summer day on the beach. Otherwise it's a novelty at best. Unless you're slathered in tanning oil, have your toes buried in the sand, and smelling the salt air as you watch the waves roll in, don't bother with this.

Water water and more water. That's all of the taste this has. Anything where you must add a lime to get any taste is not my style.

Once you get past the skunk aroma, you get a slightly skunky and watery flavor. Slap a salted lime wedge in there, and it's a decently refreshing summer beer.

Thin, but refreshing. Mostly malt with a hint of weak hops. If this beer cost as much as a domestic, it would be a good lawnmower brew. Really a light beer. Overpriced. Easy to drink several. use lime

No better than light BMC products. Tastes like carbonated water. Nothing ineresting here, just swill.

I honestly don't understand why someone would pay extra for a beer that's no different than the average domestic swill.Really pale, watery yellow with minimal head,minimal flavor,minimal aroma and everything else.If you want an American Standard, save yourself the extra cash and buy a domestic. And why do they insist on packaging in clear bottles?

Apparently some people put lemon in it. Either way, a refreshing beer that's a little too easy to drink. Spanner.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2005 A couple of my friends used to live to drink Corona... WHY? Though it’s not bad with a lime (yes it is, who am I kidding?), you shouldn’t need to add anything to a beer for it to taste good. The smell is awful, very skunky... and sometimes the taste matches the smell. Nothing impressive about this beer.

The best thing going for Corona is it's a pretty beer to look at and you don't have to open it or drink it to get the benefit of looking at it with the nice clear bottle. A real good beer if you like this style I guess, but I'll have a skunked Heineken over this Mexican pipi de caballo any day.
