I was so excited to rate this beer. Every time I have a Corona, I find myself drinking a lot more than I planned on. This may be due in part to the bar located around my block selling them at .50 cents each for 3 hours on Thursday nights. The bar is Dos Gringos. It is heaven.
I drink every Corona Light with a diced up lime. These two go together like beans and burritos. Coronas are really meant to be drank on hot summer days or during outdoor festivities. Thats when I think you will enjoy them the most.
But we are here to rate beer. Corona Light (with a lime) has a different taste than most beers. Of course the lime adds a small taste of bitterness. After the first sip your taste buds become accustomed to it. Corona Light is 4.5 % alcohol but you don’t really seem to notice it. It has a distinct smell that isn’t too pleasing and an awful color but the lime makes it an easy drink.
For those of you health conscious drinkers, Corona Light has 5 carbs in it and a whopping 107 calories, according to Realbeer.com. Thats a lot for a light beer. But Corona is an Import and our neighbors to the south may not count their calories when they drink. You shouldn’t either!
Corona Light gets 3 1/2 stars
A major reason it got this score is because it is just awful without a lime. check out how corona markets themselves as this elite beer for relaxing.
