Thus the inclusion of Corona Extra for this week’s beers. It’s brewed to the American Macro style and is 4.6% alcohol by volume.
Smell: Skunky Mexican lager; corny light beer with the typical skunked (lightstruck) aroma that’s become a signature of the style.
Taste: Grainy and light, bitter from the skunky lightstruck character. A touch of sour character.
Mouthfeel: Light, fizzy on the tongue and leaves a bitter aftertaste.
Overall: Really not very good, the skunkiness is overpowering yet doesn’t cover the cheap beer taste very well.
(The best way I’ve found to drink Corona in the past is not with a lime wedge in the neck, as you commonly see; it’s with a shot of tequila poured into it.)
