Just found this on-line at Tesco, 24 bottles of corona now called coronita for £10 though it was a bargain less than 50p a bottle.

Ideal for the bank holiday period!!

Ye fair point

Still cheap even though they are 210ml bottles, unless someone knows where you can get cheaper corona?

Already mentioned, along with the others in the £10 Tesco deal here:

Limes keep the flies off the bottle, not to sup beer through. To cold here for lots of flies..........

My spanish ain't so good but I'm pretty sure Coronita means baby Corona i.e. smaller bottle. I got some today but only 'cos I had a £2 off voucher.
Excellent for bbq's, wait I live in Scotland.......

There's no room for limes in these mini bottles!!!

Corona is the #1 selling beer in Mexico, the #1 selling Mexican beer in the world and the #4 selling beer in the world. Corona is considered a pale lager that is made with water, barley, hops and yeast and is served in a clear bottle. I have served thousands of Coronas during my bartending career so far and have always wandered why Corona is always garnished with a lime wedge in the neck of the bottle.

During my research to answer this question, I couldn’t find one particular source that could give me one particular answer. Instead, I found a bunch of theories as to why Corona is always served with a lime.

Theory #1:
Whenever beer is exposed to sunlight or heat, it develops a skunky taste. This is why most beers on the market are served in dark bottles. Corona is served in a clear bottle. Therefore, the purpose for the lime to be served with the Corona is to mask that skunky taste.

Theory #2:
Serving a lime with a bottle of Corona was originally intended for sanitary purposes. The lime was used to disinfect the rim of the bottle.

Theory #3:
A bartender in Mexico started the trend of serving Corona with a lime because it was the presence of citrus fruit (lime or lemon) that would keep flies away from entering the bottle so that fly spray wouldn’t have to be used. The use of fly spray was blamed for altering the taste of the beer. According to this theory, the lime was just supposed to stay in the neck of the bottle. It was actually tourists whom started pushing the lime into the bottle. Apparently, people of Mexico enjoy their Corona minus the lime.

Theory #4:
The lime in the Corona bottle was a marketing gimmick that stuck with the gringos. That’s why you see limes in all of the Corona bottles in advertisements.

Theory #5:
Limes are a cheap commodity in Mexico therefore they are added to most drinks and not just bottles of Corona.

After much frustration of not getting my question answered clearly in my research, I decided to contact Corona myself. I asked Corona why it is that bottles of Corona are always garnished with a lime, what purpose does the lime serve and how did the lime tradition come to be. Unfortunately, I have yet to receive a response from Corona.

This is really good value - works out at about £2 per litre whilst the 12 pack larger bottles are £3 per litre. Got this earlier and you could have more than one bottle! Voted hot!

Red hot, just picked mine up. Love this beer.

You've heard the phrase "one for the road" well I had three of these for road on Saturday! So easy to drink from these little bottles. Awesome - go buy some. Heat added

back to full price now

unexpire! saw these onstore in tesco today!

I think it's still universally called Corona but in Spain it's known as Coronita (as the Spanish crown own the rights to the word Corona). All I can think is that these were first imported to Spain from Mexico and then the excess sent to the UK

Ive always stuck by theory 1

I think I'll hang on until tesco develops the 75ml bottle!

Ive always stuck by theory 1



Theory 1 is what I read somewhere once and seems to make the most sense.
As for the deal - hot even though they are the tiddlers!

I much prefer corona without the lime

Firstly, this should not be expired.

Secondly, I couldn't care less why a lime is stuck in the neck, what I do care about is the fact the beer tastes a lot worse without it. For this reason alone I'll go with reason #1.

I bought this on Sunday. The bottles are small but for a tenner it still works out as very good value.

I don't, i think it tastes alot nicer without the lime as you can actually taste the beer rather than just the lime. And the reason its expired is because people are seeing its gone back up in price online i think, rather than actually going to check their local tesco
