Corona Extra is a pale lager produced by Mexican brewery Cervecería Modelo and owned by Belgian company AB InBev. It is often served with a wedge of lime or lemon in the neck of the bottle to add tartness and flavor.

According to Sinebrychoff, a Finnish company owned by the Carlsberg Group, Corona Extra contains barley malt, corn, hops, yeast, antioxidants (ascorbic acid), and propylene glycol alginate as a stabilizer. Propylene glycol alginate is a synthetic, colorless, odorless, tasteless liquid that belongs to the same chemical class as alcohol.
Corona beer is available in a variety of bottle presentations, ranging from the 207 ml ampolleta up to the 940 ml Corona Familiar. A draught version also exists, as does canned Corona in some markets.
In Spain, the beer is branded as Coronita, as renowned winemaker Bodegas Torres has owned the trademark for “Coronas” since 1907. The packaging is otherwise unchanged. In the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and the US, smaller, 210ml bottles of the beer are also branded as “Coronita”
