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.

This is NOT brewed in Mexico and tastes all wrong.
I have been drinking Corona for decades, first in California and, with Ocados help, in the UK for a while now. Always been good and guests like it without exception. Clean, light taste with no nasty chemical overtones. Now, someone in their infinite wisdom has started supplying locally brewed Corona-ish beer. It is not the same and has an aftertaste that is not pleasant. The description still says Mexico as origin, so is Ocado being conned by the supplier as well as the public? I will not be buying any more of this, except maybe one to confirm or dispel my fears. Such a shame as my only supply was through Ocado.
This is easy drinking and better value than most. Crisp and smooth - delicious!
most tasty and refreshing
staple beer in our fridge over the summer
fab on it's own, with a slice of lime or (bare with me) a slice of orange
Perfect on a hot summers day! Light and refreshing. Very easy to drink!
Great beer but Ocado pricing needs review
The price of this case is not in line with other supermarkets, even on offer its £2 more then Tesco
