Sol is an easy-drinking, refreshing lager .This crisp, clean, golden lager is perfect On a hot summers day and complements spicy foods and barbeques dishes.

Taste much like a Corona but more sugary and less bitter and skunky. Still very corny and syrupy. Good refreshing beer in the hot summer and that's about it, faint taste and a weak body.

Citrus, with strong adjunct flavors. Watered down, beery lemonade. Taste isn't bad to me. It looks like pisswater and smells too. It makes a whole lot of sense to me to drink this on a summer day in Mexico. Better than most Mexican lagers like Corona, especially.

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.

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

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.
