Sol béer importada.

The look of it: very very light. Golden color, lots of carbonation

The smell of it. Not very impressed by the smell. I will say more like a corny watery smell. Not very pleasant.

The taste of it: let's say it's watery with a very bad feeling at the end. U can taste a bit of cornyness to it but most it is water. Feels like a 2% ABV. The feeling after you drink that beer is horrible. Feels like a chemical beer.

So overall would I recommend it ? F*** No ! Even if a friend give it to u for your birthday, but that directly I'm the garbage

Dosen't even satisfy that rare urge for a cheap mexican beer. Just plain bad, no redeeming factors for me.

I just sampled a great many beers in Mexico, most mediocre at best, although I will endeavor to provide a focus on any differences I was able to discern and will also attempt some degree of objectivity. This one is actually harder to find than Corona and Pacifico, at least in Cabo San Lucas and surrounding area. Finally snagged one at an American burger joint. A pale yellow, maybe just a hair darker than Corona, with obvious effervescent fizz but no true head of which to speak. Aroma is the expected meld of creamed corn, skunk, rank grass, and ever so subtle citrus fruit notes. Little in the way of aroma per se, though. Again, just a hair more flavor than Corona but a near clone thereof, less corn and perhaps more of a citrus and grape candy note. In other words, slightly more mainstream lager "character". Does not improve as it warms, needless to say. Nil hop aroma or flavor but plenty of skunk in this here example. Far too fizzy, which serves to mask the few flavor elements present. Not great. Not worth a serious tasting session.

Not the worst Mexican AAL I've tasted, but pretty bad even with a lime in it.
