The brits "invented" IPA because the hops acted as a preservative for the long trip to India round the Cape of Good Hope. It would not surprise me if the extra dose of hops, besides being excellent on the taste buds, didn't ward off some of the evil thingies in the water. The reason that Corona is such shit and tastes skunky is no hops and clear glass bottles. The beer is spoiled by the time it reaches your lips... hence the "limon" enough limon will cover any rotten taste, though when you put it on it makes them squirm a bit at first.
