Origin: Mexico City, Mexico
Overall impression: Golden lager with honey and refreshing citrus notes.
Corona has been brewed and bottled in Mexico since 1925 and is lighter than traditional beers, with a crisp and refreshing taste. The aroma is fruity-honey with a touch of malt and the flavour is crisp and well-balanced between hops and malt, toward the malt side.
Whatever the time of year, Corona is best served ice cold and with a wedge of lime, that both complements and intensifies the flavour with the lovely citrus notes.
Corona's superior taste profile is due to the fact that our brewers take great care to use only the best ingredients available, made with the finest quality blend of filtered water, malted barley, hops, corn and yeast.
Still brewed in Mexico, every sip of Corona conjures images of golden sands and pale blue skies, no wonder customers keep coming back time and time again.
The unmistakable color, the one-of-a-kind taste, the unparalleled flavor of relaxation makes it 'la cerveza mas fina, from Mexico', made for gathering with friends.

Food Pairing Recommendation
Subtle flavours and low alcohol intensity means Corona can be overpowered. However, it's fragrant nature and citrus notes, when combined with lime, also make it a great partner for several cuisines: in particular Thai, Chinese and Mexican. The sweetness from the malts is also at the right level to reduce medium heat that can often be found in dishes from these areas.
Home-Run Pairing: Nachos
Corn Nachos will have flavor matches with the corn used as part of the grain bill for Corona. The carbonation will help cut through any rich and fatty toppings such as avocado, sour cream or cheese, whilst the malt sweetness will offset any moderate heat from jalapenos or other varieties of chillis. Finally the lime added to the corona will add a citrus burst to the nachos as well helping further accentuate the flavors on your palate.

Light and refreshing
A lovely refreshing beer. It would be ideal in the Summer with a BBQ, but also good with spicy food in colder weather.
Light and refreshing perfect accompaniment to BBQs, pasta or summer salads. Best drunk outdoors with a wedge of lime.
Pleasant if a little underwhelming
Light, refreshing, though lacking in character. Can easily drink, though not my first choice to go to.
Fresh and Tasty
A very good, crisp, flavourful beer - light and tasty and an excellent accompaniment to spicy food. It also slips down very well on its own because it's fresh but not sharp like some similar beers. Good stuff.
Light and refreshing
We were asked to review Corona Extra by Ocado. My husband sampled the goods and tells me that it's a nice drink and goes well with a slice of lime. I had a sip and I've got to say it's not as bad as most but I'm still no convert!
We are not beer drinkers but this is light and refreshing perfect with spicy food. Would buy again.
