Corona Extra on draft!?

Ahh… Corona Extra brings me back memories from my college days in Arizona (e.g., my legendary 40-something Corona night gone really, really bad). The only reason why I am even rating this beer is because I had it on tap for the first time ever which is really rare. I don’t think they even have Corona Extra on draft in the states. My wife and I went to Mexico along with another couple at an all-inclusive resort last week and they had Corona on draft. Corona Extra is made in Mexico and distributed through Grupo Modelo S.A. de C.V. I usually drink it out of a 12oz bottle with lime squeezed in. However, with this beer being offered on tap, it was usually poured into a tall glass. This 4.6% ABV lager pours a golden, without any head, some bubbles. Grassy hops aroma hit as soon as I first taste it, then some sweet notes came through as the beer wormed up in a glass. Good, medium body. There is a taste to this brew, although not much — some light hops and some sweet notes. Definitely a lager to drink in the heat or when eating Mexican food. Beeradvocate: D/D-, Ratebeer: 10/100. (OUCH! on both counts, but understandable as both sites are craft beer fiends). Moneybeer: C+ (I gave this rating higher because this is a “party beer” and usually drunk in specific situations such as on a hot day by the pool). Adios!

Brought home these #smallbatch #bourbon puppies. @woodfordreserve #doubleoaked and this one I am very excited about -#jeffersonsocean To make this batch of Jefferson’s Ocean Trey Zoeller, Jefferson’s Master Blender, sourced 62 barrels of bourbon aged 6-8 years and then put them on a container ship for 6 months where the barrels rocked and sloshed across the oceans stopping at a total of 31 ports and making their way across the equator four times. The theory is that this constant movement of the liquid in the barrels ages (matures) the whiskey faster because more of the liquid is in contact with the wood more often also giving off caramel and some of that sea brine. #cheers! The man, the myth, the legend!
