Great taste, attractive design. One of oldest Mexican beer full of history and tradition from German founders. Full of tsar and refreshing, most of people in USA like to introduce a lime in the bottle, not necessary at all. perfect companion for beef, strongly recommended.

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. To be fair, Corona is not one of them, so you could certainly do worse.
