Beereview Under the Sun

I might make some enemies of the purists here however...

Today I review Corona. I'm going to come right out and say it, I love Corona. Brewed by the Cerveceria Modelo, and imported to the states. To note, I much prefer Corona with lime. But without is acceptable is well.

The thing with Corona is that I love a cool cold crisp beer. Especially on any given hot day (which we have many of here in Florida). When it's cold, I love a stout. When I'm lounging late at night, contemplating the world, something with a nice high percentage is great. IPAs and other complex ales go great with food. However, here in Florida, Corona is a great beer for all occasions. So smooth, clean and crisp. Beer snobs will turn up their nose at this, I know. But I am no beer snob, I love all beer. Well, all beer that does it right. No senses are challenged by a Corona, which is what makes it so great. I don't have to worry about any crazy strong flavors, or alcohol, or anything else in a beer that might knock me off my seat. Nope, but it's perfect for relaxing after a long day, so lets get into it shall we?

Crack the top, jam in a lime. A quick smell, and get a soft fizzy lime sent, with a faint faint grain smell. No appreciable head to speak of, at all. Take a drink and you get what you pay for. A cold, crisp, lightly citrus, bleach blonde lager. Crisp and clean are really the two things that come to mind. Not a lot of flavor, and not sweet whatsoever. Ever so slightly bitter, but if they use hops, I can't taste it. At 4.6%, drink em' till' the cows come home.
