Corona Light

Slightly offensive aroma drinking from the bottle. Golden yellow color with some skunk. Interestingly enough, the skunk is the most well defined character of this "beer"! There is a very, very slight hop bite in the finish, but outside of that this is cold water. A nasty, dryish mouthfeel completes the deal. Products like this are simply being marketed and sold to the masses as a consumer item not a beer, so I don't get too upset about its role as a bad beer because I don't suppose the brewer...

Pacífico

The usual report on this kind of stuff. Pours pale yellow, fizzy head that disappears quickly, is thin in the mouth and generally forgettable. Mine tasted slightly metallic and infinitely better after three or four bottles, with lime added, in the scorching heat. If you are just going to have one, when it is not 100 degrees and without lime, forget it. Just one of the thousands of macro, adjunct lagers that are 100% non-descript.

Corona Extra

To me this is no worse or better than it pretends to be. It's North American macro lager, so what do you expect? Like all of these brews, it's pale, pours with a lot of carbonation that disappears instantly to leave no head and no lacing, invariably smells skunky, isn't easy to drink, often gives headaches when drunk in quantity and generally is a nasty experience. Add in the fact that Corona appears to the lack the thirst-quenching properties of similar beers and you've just about said it...

Modelo Especial

OK, make no mistake this is a fairly low quality beer, but it doesn't really pretend to be much else. It's simply a mexican lager that you're going to drink and enjoy when it's really hot or when you are eating spicy food. It's got to be mega-chilled (since doing that will not affect the taste or experience at all) and you've got to gulp it down quickly. Golden yellow, thin looking pour, with highly carbonated head that disappears quickly. Not too unpleasant aroma and initial taste that this...

Negra Modelo

I like the packaging, the short interesting bottle with the foil covered top promises much, but the contents are somewhat disappointing. A nice amber color with a head (that really reveals what appears to be an awful lot of carbonation) that disappears very quickly. The first few mouthfuls were very ordinary but by the time I got to the third (cooler) bottle it seemed to get better. A mild taste with a distinct lack of bitterness or hops is not really to my liking, but nevertheless a very...
