Grim Reaper's Eulogy
***Before we start, let me say this was most difficult to review, because I don't think I ever drank a Corona in a glass before. The review made me stop and wonder why I like this beer so much in spite of its weak standings against other beers. Void of it's bottle and lime slice, it's like a fish out of water, it misses the essence of the what it truly is.
(insert sound of a record scratch here!)
It's Corona's unique ability to easily whisk you away to a tropical clime, feel your toes in the sand and almost hear the seagulls. As a refresher, a 'Corona', is the hottest part of the sun. The sales pitch on this "Cerveza Mas Fina" is aimed at that factor in every commercial ad right down to the tropical slice of lime. What other beer has its own garnish?

The beer is modestly low in alcohol and watery in taste so you can enjoy mucho, mas, more of them. This is no measure of disrespect about this beer. It goes down easily at scorching hot summer boat outings, at the beach or relaxing around the pool. The Mexicans know just how to beat the heat. Any heavier of a beer and all the relaxation would be lost...and that my friends is what Corona is all about. Relaxation. They've got their beer making down to an art, not a science like other beers. Just visit either website and you'll see why.
