Corona Light

Family Pale Lager Style Light Beer
Country Mexico ABV 4.1%
Producer Grupo Modelo
Price $ Packaging 12oz/355ml bottle

Overview Corona Light is Grupo Modelo’s first foray into light beer, and it currently stands as the most popular imported light beer in North America, beating out Amstel Light. While the beer market in the US has been fairly flat over the last decade, Corona Light has grown steadily. Never underestimate the power of beach-vacation marketing.

Flavors and aromas Every bit as skunky as you’d expect from a Corona product, this light offering is nearly devoid of beer character. “Overcarbonated water,” opined one taster, and another was moved to imagine beer-flavored ChapStick. But mostly this was just skunky.
