A bottle served at Tierra Viva in Sayulita.

A: The bottle arrived with a lime wedge. Clear as every other adjunct lager this weak, I'm running out of adjectives. It was yellow and pale.

S: The lager was cold, rendering it scentless. Thin malts and not much else.

T: The cold temperature greatly aided me. The cold locked out just about every flavor except for the occasional lime aftertaste. Pale grains and corn. That's all she wrote.

M: The mouthfeel is, in a word, cold. And that's how this style is best served. The citric lime addition adds enough flavor, more than the adjunct body would.

D: Another excellent hot weather beer. One of the better adjunct lagers that I've had during vacation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.
