Brewed by Grupo Modelo (Corona)
Style: Pale Lager
Corona Extra is a pale lager that has been brewed and bottled in Mexico by Grupo Modelo since 1926. Grupo Modelo is Mexico’s largest brewer and is currently exporting Corona to more than 150 countries worldwide. Corona is one of the top-selling beers worldwide.
Although widely consumed year round, Corona is generally viewed as a summertime beverage. It is a brand that has a laid back image and is strongly associated with fun in the sun. Corona’s smooth taste is perfect for a long hot summers evening.
Outside of Mexico, Corona is commonly served with a wedge of lime or lemon in the neck of the bottle to add flavor.
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.
