Or just suck the juice out of the lime and throw the Corona away.

That sounds like the best plan!
Although I have some pretty good memories of multiple vacations sitting on the beach in Mexico doing nothing but eating chicharones and nachos while drinking corona with lime. Ah, those were the days, before marriage and a child and discovering craft beer.

I was buying a 12 pack of stella at cvs, where they don't have any sort of selection really, and as i was walking out some guy came up to me and said "you know that's a bud beer, right?" I said "yes, it is a decent beer" and gave him a big smile. he was non-plussed. I followed up by pointing to the Carls Jr. across the street and said "I also eat there on occasion."

Hey now, Corona with lime is a perfectly acceptable choice when water's just a little too heavy.

They unfortunately they have updated their website and my old link is dead . Perhaps the Czech language version still has all of the details. They did have a little bit still and still mention dry and wet foam here:

Last year at the PU competition, they had fresh PU on tap, but it didn't seem quite as nice as it had at the Czech restaurant where the contest was held the year before. Later in the evening I watched the PU brewmaster showing the bartender how to properly pour the beer. I think he noticed a difference, and it was in how the beer was poured so he was showing the man how to do it right. Unfortunately I had had enough beer by then so didn't get to compare.

Thats's a little strange. The selection listed is impressive but that it should be listed as "worlds largest selection" isn't right.

This, I think, is regarded as the most impressive in regards two selection:

But it was just a tiny nibble, so it only took 5 minutes to get my taste buds back. Can't imagine the impact of more than that.
I often taste hops, especially when I plan on using one variety and find it's not available at my local HBS. I have a double IPA in secondary right now. I planned on using Columbus to bitter, but had to change to Willamette. I tasted the replacement, and adjusted accordingly.

I'll admit that I have done it. Once.
I've done it multiple times, I'm quite fond of it actually...
