Picked up a 32 oz bottle of this stuff at a gas station in Tucumcari, NM. I had just got into a hotel after a long day of driving. No need to pour it, it's a clear bottle. It smells super sweet and the taste matches. Just what I'd expect from a Mexican beer. Light bodied and carbonated well. This is a "just got doing something all day" kinda beer. Not much taste. I will drink beers like this every once in a while. It serves a purpose, but it's usually because you want to throw your dollars somewhere else.

330 mL bottle from a sixer picked up at TBS; best before June 20 2015. Served well-chilled.
Pours a pale golden-yellow colour, topped with one finger of soapy white head that quickly fizzles itself out. A narrow collar and thin film remain, with some scattered spots of lace. The aroma is bland and fairly nondescript; corny sweetness, pale barley malt and boiled vegetables. At least it's not skunky... but maybe that just means they didn't bother with actual hops.
This is a fairly inoffensive example of the style. Mildly sweet, kind of like a soggy unsalted corn chip, with suggestions of pale barley malts. Thin-bodied and very watery, with moderate carbonation for the style that provides this one with a smooth mouthfeel. Lacks the crispness of many pale lagers, but it also doesn't have any particularly disagreeable flavours to mask, so it's a fair trade-off. As easy to drink as any light beer, and not quite as diluted.
Final Grade: 2.76, a C. Sol is one of the better imported cervezas I have tried, but believe me when I say that this is far from a ringing endorsement. It is fairly bland and corn soda-like, with no especially offensive attributes. This one's main attraction is the relatively low price, but there are domestic Corona knock-offs that manage to beat it in that department. In hot weather this beer will refresh you, but I can think of plenty of other lagers I'd rather be drinking. To be fair, Corona is not one of them, so you could certainly do worse.
