Brewed with some 40% rice and a relatively low proportion of hops, this very light bodied lager is sold in a distinctive clear screen printed bottle. The bizarre trend for drinking Corona with a lime wedge pushed into the neck of the bottle was started by American tourists and simply caught on.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/08/2012


Clear, light golden yellow with the little head it did muster quickly fading to a ring of foam.


Very subdued, only faint sweet corn and floral hops.


Clean but somewhat bland palate with faint sweet corn and slightly metallic hops.


Starchy rice evident on a lacklustre finish.
