CORONA Extra was yesterday voted the world's favourite beer in a poll of more than two million Facebook users.

The Mexican-brewed lager - usually served with a segment of lime - topped the list with more than 645,000 votes.

It easily beat Dutch favourite Heineken, which received 594,475 votes, and Ireland's Guinness which came third with 396,276.

The independent poll was launched by the social networking site.

Chris Lewis, director of Corona's British distributor Wells and Young's, said: "It is a premium beer and deserves to be the Facebook favourite as it is among the world's biggest selling beer brands."

The top five beers were: 1. Corona Extra, 645,445 votes; 2. Heineken, 594,475 votes; 3. Guinness Draught, 396,276 votes; 4. Stella Artois, 350,825 votes; 5. Budweiser, 343,493 votes.

Tells you how old the average facebook user is; Corona is not good beer.

Corona is a step above Natty Light and on par with Coors. I think Miller Lite is considerably better and it’s far from my favorite.

Hick’s Special Draught...Brewed at an English pub, somewhere in Cornwall as I recall. While I never tested the theory, I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that corona is the result of a eavenings consumption of Hick’s. Truly the best Ale I have ever tasted.

Another triumph of marketing over quality. Corona isn’t even the best Mexican beer, much less the best beer in the world. And the lime slice is a silly tourist affectation.

I prefer Fischer Labelle Alscase (Green) or Stella Artois or even Grolches (I prefer pilsners)

For tailgating and games it’s Bud Light for me. If I’m out having a nice dinner I drink Amstel Light.

Gaaaah! I can't believe this.

The reason that Corona is typically served with a lime in the neck is to hide the typically "skunked" taste.

The reason that Corona is usually skunked is because it's bottled in clear glass to save money. Corona is considered cheap beer in Mexico.

Ultraviolet light skunks beer. The reason all decent beer (and even most bad beer) is bottled in tinted glass is to prevent UV light from skunking it if the bottled beer is exposed to sunlight.

I repeat - Corona is *iss water.

Stella on the other hand, I like very much.

Skunky beer with a lot of hoppiness. I'll drink it when I have money but can't get an IPA. As hoppy as it is, I have to wonder why it's so skunky, but I don't think those thoughts when IPAs aren't available and I'm not reduced to American pislers (I spelled that the way I intended to spell it).
