A-I have to say...this a bright golden beer...very appealing to my sense of sight, my mouth waters when a beer has color that pops like this!
S-not really picking much up here at all! If anything, a flat stereotypical "beer" odor is all I can detect. No malts...no hops.
T-one dimensional flavor at best. Very dull and flat. There may be a bit of a malt after taste
M-decent mouth feel, it's light while not over/under carbonated.
O-Meh. Reminds me of beer I stole from grandpa's fridge as a kid that came in a plain white can with the word "Beer" written in black on the side. It's pretty close to drinking water.

While I do tend to like the darker beers, I didn't think this one was too bad! Scent is not too great, taste is mildly bitter but not a whole lot going on in the background. Not too "deep" of a flavor. Reminds me of other Mexican beers.. not too serious, good cold after a dip in the pool, maybe with a lime. ;)

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of corn, hint of sweet malt, hint of pale malt, hint of hops, and rice. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of an American Adjunct Lager. Tastes of strong adjunct, hint of pale malt, and a hint of hop. Overall, not much to report. Almost exactly what I was expecting.

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.
