Corona Light Low Carb Beer
Corona is brewed and bottled in Mexico, and is often served with a lime. Corona Light keeps the same flavor with 5g of carbs.
I really enjoy Mexican food so I was eager to see how Corona Light would taste. I did definitely taste the 'traditional Corona flavor' in there, but there was just a hint of something metallic flavored too.
The beer in general had a good, fresh flavor, with a decent head. It wasn't watery like many other beers in the low carb category. I might pour this if I was having quesadillas or a low carb burrito, and add in a squirt of lime juice, too!
By the way, a bit of obscure rumor about Corona and Corona Light. The clear bottle is of course AWFUL for proper beer sunlight protection, meaning that the vast majority of Corona drinkers are drinking skunked beer. Beer only takes under a minute in sunlight to get skunked.
So, the rumor says, the main reason that Corona plays up the adding of the lime into the beer is that the sharp citrus flavor of the lime covers up the inevitable skunking that occurs. If you really like Corona, be VERY cautious about how you transport and store your beer. You should at least try to keep the beer from skunking before you drink it!
