Why did yuppies put lime in Corona's?

 

at the time of this new trend (shortly after TBH) I had traveled to Mexico and South America.  and not one bar I frequented put a piece of fruit in my beer.

Not sure if it's a yuppie thing.

 

In my opinion, Corona tastes like a skunk's ass and people probably put lime in it to make it drinkable.

 

A slice of orange seems to be the norm when people order a Blue Moon.  Whenever I get one, I tell them to hold the orange.  Fruit and beer don't go well together for me.

I think it was/is a trendy drink.

 

I stick by my theory that people put lime in it to make it taste less like a skunk's ass.  But, yeah .... I'm sure a lot of people drank/drink it so they "look cool," even though they think it tastes like crap.

To mask the skunk flavor.  

 

I like skunky bud, but not skunky beer

I don't like Blue Moon because it's orange peels.  I love wheats but not one from orange peels.

 

If I have to drink Blue Moon, I put a slice of lemon because an orange is overkill to me.

That's why I put it in.  Coronoa by itself is isn't drinkable...Corona  with a lime or if it's 100 degrees out and you're just really thirsty is the only way I drink it.

A girl who's a regular at a bar I frequent gets Corona with lemon instead of lime.  Still tastes like ass.

I put limes in my Corona mofo.

Not just at the bar but at home.  Why else have a cutting board?

Don't you use it to cut your cheese?

Because the bar was out of...never mind, want to keep my warning points at zero. Go to youtube and search on restaurant scene in beer league, here what the waitress says to the third guy that orders. Freakin' hilarious.

 

As for me, just stay away from any beer that is best served with or has the name of fruit in it. Double whammy on Corona since it comes in a clear bottle.

i do the exact same thing with blue moon.  i'm also with you on corona.  it's just meh.  in fact, all mexican beers lack something to be desired.

Dos Equis is alright.  I do enjoy Modelo Negra Especial. 

 

If Corona was the only beer available, I'd switch to water, instead.  I just will not drink it.

Maybe in America.   

 

Not in Mexico (City),  or maybe that was because at 8000 feet you get drunker faster / easier in the thin air

May I ask how you know what a skunk’s ass tastes like? Can you keep this family friendly? 

 

I’m guessing alcohol was involved!

Is this a troll thread ?     Who drinks a corona without a lime ?     

 

Not a fan as modelo especial tastes infinitely better (with a lime as well).

i was actually at a resort in mexico when i was turned off to it.  i wanted mixed drinks, but that place watered them down to the point where you couldn't tie one on.  i just switched to beers to make sure i was actually consuming alcohol.  after a week of that, i can't stomach mexican beers anymore.  i'm not offish to them...i'll still drink corona.  i just don't prefer them.

I was in Nairobi in the early 80s and their beer litterally tasted like you were drinking from a 10 year old sneaker.

 

So at dinner(s) I tried ordering a Tequila (response) huh?  Tequila , huh?   Never mind, give me a double shot of Vodka and Ice tea.

 

They brought me a glass of Iced Tea and a double shot of Vodka.  that was my go to for 3 weeks

The lime is supposed to be rubbed around the rim of the bottle to ward off any bacteria, so says my Mexican buddy who has used the trick countless times in sub par Mexican bars, however, people in North America dump their lime into their beer like they know what they’re doing..........they don’t.

I don’t drink Mexican beer frequently, but when I do it’s Dos Equis Amber.  And yes to lime in Corona for me.  Only because it tastes like ass without it.

So drink a different beer.

 

I just found a good one,  Tres Cabezas Key Lime Gose, from Three heads in Rochester. Vert refreshing on a hot day.

I lived in West Texas briefly in the early 80's. It was there I was introduced to adding salt and lime to the top of a Tecate can.
