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!

Thanks @cleverham87 for a trip down memory lane with this coveted #Aruba #Balashi beer! Perfect day for this! β˜€οΈπŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ» And I would be remiss not to post #lawsonsfinest #lipsofsunshine! That stuff is amazing! (photo credit: @fussballkoenig @threepennytap) #VTbeer So long #NewEngland, it's been fun! πŸ‘πŸ» #Cheers (pictured with some #HeadyTopper) Being on the road is tough. @treehousebrewco #treehousepacer #craftbeer Love this place! Has literally all the best beers one could find in #Vermont! Gotta love the signage on the top right too! πŸ˜‚ @threepennytap #lawsonsfinestliquids #sipofsunshine #hillfarmstead #VTbeer #cheers! Very disappointed with their growth strategy execution. 3 hour average for growler fills 1-2 staffers manning the taps and very slow with building their new tasting room. Glad to have made the pilgrimage though! @hillfarmstead #hillfarmstead #VTbeer #cheers! Geez, this stuff is SOOO hard to find! #headyspotter is both a blessing and a curse. Glad we landed a four pack at least but many bars have cans. Not complaining. #headytopper #whereswaldo #VTbeer #cheers! Had some #weisstrash @newenglandbrewing and thought it was okay along with its mediocre lineup. So disappointed they can't make more #ghandibot and retire the others. ;) #nebco  #craftbeer A little bit of art. @treehousebrewco #craftbeer #curiositytwenty #cheers! Julius-amazing! @treehousebrewco #treehousebrewing #MAbeer #craftbeer #roadtrip #cheers! Epic drinking last night! @gooseislandbeer Rare Bourbon County Stout - 2010 vintage. #bcbs #rarebeer #holygrail #whitewhale #whaleslayers #craftbeer #bosspour #cheers! Damn this is some good shit! @dcbrau #solarabyss I sure hope this isn't an one-off. Please make some more of this #dcbrau! #craftbeer #cheers!
