Indiana

2.26/5  rDev -7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25

Pours a light straw gold, with nice white head of suds. Attractive lace, even.

Nose says corn and adjunct malts. Not much to go on there.

Taste is more corn and adjuncts. Body is very light, even watery. "Beer flavored water", this one. A little tinny and metallic near the finish, Sol is very light and lacking in flavor. Not one I'd care to revisit.

2.76/5  rDev +13.6%
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 - but to be fair, Corona is not one of them, so you could certainly do worse.
