A staple at everything from summer beach parties to everyday occasions, Corona Extra is a pilsner-type Mexican beer with a slightly sweet taste and a dash of citrus. Hints of lemon and ginger round out the flavor for a crisp and firm taste. Corona Extra was first introduced in the U.S. in 1981 and became the fastest growing imported beer in U.S. history. Corona Extra has been brewed and bottled in Mexico since 1925. Sweet and delicious in taste.
