This is the beer that has become synonymous with the beach. Slap a lime on the side with a little salt on the rim and you will feel like your sitting on an Acapulco beach in the good old days, before you could hear gunfire in the distance. German brewers have a long history of setting up and brewing beers in Mexico, but like Americans the Mexicans have lightened up quite a good bit. The other thing that Corona is known for is a slightly "skunky" taste. This happens when Corona in clear glass bottles is exposed to sunlight or UV light. There has been a rumer around for years that Corona exposes their canned beer to UV light before canning to give it the authentic flavor, but I have never seen any proof that this is true. You may actually want to bottle Corona in clear glass bottles to experience to true flavor profile. If you do this please let us know it worked, we would love the feedback. Remember this is a pilsner and must be fermented at a lower temperature and it must go through a diacetyl rest. You can learn more about this by reading the "brewers notes" In the instructions below.
