Went on a little family vacation to mexico and the mini fridge was stocked with these. An american adjunct lager, but made in mexico...interesting. Poured into a glass. As expected transparent straw yellow (actually, kind of urine looking). Hard pour yeilded a big frithy head that was gone quick leaving some bubbles on the surface of the brew. Nose is grainy and reminds me of the beer i drank in high school. Little corn. Taste, if you can call it that is also very grainy. Not much of anything there. Mslightly less bold and flavorful than the american counterparts. Think i will stick to margharitas this trip instead. Not a drain pour but not something to drink if looking for a beer.

1.15/5  rDev -52.9%

Appearance – Yellow body with a tinge of orange. No cabeza on this cervesa.

Smell – The only scent I can pick up from the glass is creamed corn in a can.

Taste – Caramba! This can’t be good. It tastes like someone rolled a skunk in corn batter and somehow crammed the poor little guy into a bottle. There’s some sweetness in there, but I think that’s just my gums bleeding.

Mouthfeel – There’s some faint Alka-seltzer type of carbonation in there, but otherwise it’s pretty dead.

Drinkability – Forget the lime, you’re gonna have to plop a watermelon in the glass to cover up this taste.

Comments – This is one bad beer. The Sol has set.

Not sure why I'm having this one, I already have a feeling I know what the outcome will be. The clear bottle shows the pale straw color right away, may be just one golden shade darker than a Corona. Poured into a glass, the head is the fizziest, whitest cap I've seen and it disappears in record time. The nose... well, where the hell is it? Most adjunct lagers have virtually no notable aroma to them and this one follows suit closely. Some mild corns, grains, metallic tinges, and some skunky, sulfuric smells. Not very pleasing, and not much of anything at all. Again, the taste is more of the same - lots of carbonation snap for a crisp taste, but there really isn't much of a taste. Dry grains, corn, and while the bitterness is low, it enters in a very astringent manner. No actual floral or hop flavor aside from that slight bitter bite. Just a touch more flavor than a Corona, I'd say. But now we're splitting hairs. Thin body, dry finish, heavily carbonated.

Eh, a slight step up from Corona, but we're talking very slight. In the future I'd probably pass this up for a water, it's just not really worth it.

Appearance: pale yellow color with some white bubbles on top.

Smell : corn and veggies

Taste : There's a lot of corn in this one, veggies, grains ,there's no notable present of hops.

Mouthfeel & Drinkability : Very dry beer, you would look for some water around after having a couple, cheap beer and really average.

2.4/5  rDev -1.6%

12 oz clear glass long neck bottle with a silk-screened label with no freshness date. Pale yellow colour, very clear. The white lace sticks and stays a bit but not long enough.

Big corn grit aroma with faint fusel alcohols.

Big bitty mouth feel from a flat out dominant corn grit and grain husk flavour. Hop bitterness rides this and actually intensifies it in the middle for an astringently bittern flavour. Dry and grainy finish.

Just like Corona, needs a lime … any beer that needs a lime is not worth drinking.A sub-premium lager.

"Thanks" to bort for giving me this brew as my ugly in the Good, Bad, and Ugly BIF. Pours the color of urine with a thin head. Not much smell except maybe corn. Does not have much taste at all which is better than a kick in the balls bad taste. Mouthfeel is OK & it is drinkable in the same sense as water. I was afraid this would be a lot worse. Not a drain pour but not something you would choose to drink.

Pours clear yellow with a fizzy yellow head out of the clear bottle. Corn syrup, metal, and skunk all over the taste and aroma. Stick the lime in and pretend its a Corona, because that's pretty much what this is, even down to the clear glass bottle with the painted label.
