Typical Mexican thirst quencher. Strange to drink this without a lime. Great pricepoint if you are in Mexico.

I'm much more into craft beer, local beer, etc than stuff like this.... But I would choose this over Corona and most other cervezas. It's pretty decent on a hot summer day.

Served in a clear bottle. Pours clear, light yellow color. Small, coarse head that dissipates almost immediately. Light, crisp flavor with a hint of citrus and a slightly dry, malty aftertaste. Very typical of an adjunct lager. Nothing special, not the best.

40oz clear bottle. A bit sweet good feel. I'd buy again.

Not much going here. Weak on smell, taste and body.

Taste is light grain and wheat with a touch of lemon. I would never rush out and purchase this beer as it is slightly above its competitors in the adjunct lager style. That said, I think this is infinitely more drinkable than Corona and several other Caribbean adjunct lagers. If I was not rating to style, this would come closer to a 2.

Nothing special. Decent "light" beer though for those summer session drinking days.

Plain taste, smell of corn. Better option than corona if your in Mexico.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- Had a skunky smell to it, it wasn't overwhelming but it was there.
Appearance- A pale straw yellow, with a small white head.
Taste- A skunky flavor with some citrus and maybe grain or corn.
PALATE- A light bodied beer with medium carbonation.
OVERALL- Maybe this might pair well with Mexican food but I probably won't try it again. There are to many other Mexican beers that go well with food.

Very light beer with dominant skunky notes in the aroma. I hate it.

I ordered Sol directly after the Modelo Especial. So this lager tasted like a watered down Miller Lite (yes, you heard me correctly -- watered down-- and that's saying something, given how watered down Miller Lite is). There was no body or carbonation to speak of and the taste was... well, there wasn't much taste. I learned my lesson here. I will not be revisiting this one.

A very light tasting Mexican beer. I squeeze a wedge of lime in to it. My days of strong tasting beer are few and far between. Good alternative to Dos XXX.

This beer is Downright enjoyable when it is ice cold and you are on the beach in Mexico. Any other time I would take a pass

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there was no date on the bottle that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear pale yellow color with less than one-finger white head that dissipated almost completely in less than a minute, medium carbonation, there was a small amount of lacing.

SMELL: corn and faint lime, that's all I got.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, corn and faint lime, there is very little malt sweetness and very mild hops, kind of watery.

PALATE: medium carbonation, light body.

OVERALL: this is a lawnmower beer, nothing more, I would not willingly seek this out again unless there were no other options available.
