Born in the heart of Mexico in 1899, Sol is a bright and refreshing lager.
It’s inspired by the sun and brewed to shine just like those who drink it. The ones that radiate good vibes, that lighten the mood and always look at life on the bright side. The ones who not only shine, but shine their way.

Clear golden with an initial bright white head that stuck around for a few minutes.

Skunky adjunct aroma

Initially pretty nondescript lager flavors but the went in an unpleasant vegetal direction

Light feel consistent with style, drinkable.

Fine for what it is.

I may drink too much. Choice of alcohol is lager beers, that's it. Have tried most oof them except the crappy ones like Natural Ice. Lots of Bud Light and Modelo and Corona. This beer tastes like nothing to me, but tastes like something good that doesn't taste like any other lager out there. I really like Modelo but this beer is even easier to drink for me, has a flavor that is not crappy, but there is no flavor to it that makes it very easy to crush for me.

From a clear bottle dates 02/24. Pours a nice gold colour, head doesn't last. Smell is wet grains and some malt, taste is sweeter with grain/some light white bread. Good for style.

New Mexican lager to me! Clear 12oz bottle accompanying my Chile Colorado...pale straw-colored and completely transparent with minimal head and lacing. Adjunct sweetness shines though, not altogether bad...grains, sweet malts...not mad at this for a Mexican-food companion.

I was surprised I had not reviewed this beer before. Poured from a bottle into a tall pint glass. Clear yellow color with decent initial white head and lacing. Doesn’t smell like much, a bit of corn. Taste is boring, corny but slightly refreshing. Very thin. Rather have a Corona.

calling this stuff beer is like calling a veggie burger a steak.
However, due to the low alcohol content, it might be not too bad on a very hot day.

Looks clear and light golden. Almost no smell at all. Slight slight skunky cornbread smell in there. Very light taste of carbonated water and hints of beer. This is not for me.

The look is light golden hay. Smells sweet and mildly hoppy Taste is solid only beaten IMO by Dos Equis for Mexican beer. Overall a solid Mexican beer. However based on price would not be a go to.

Poured from a 32oz caguama bottle best by January 2023

On the pour, fizzy looking bubbles come together to make a one finger head that quickly dissipates to a surprisingly fine covering over the top of the beer. The body is a light gold with lots of carbonation and some very light lacing.

Smell is very light and almost not there, bit what I can pick up is just corny malts and some skunked hops from the clear bottle. At least it's clean apart from being light struck.

Taste is a bit of a let down. Once again very light. Right on the very first sip there is a hit of bitterness that implies hops but that quickly fades as you drink and get used to it. There is a certain minerality and tartness as well that lingers until the malts fully take over about halfway into the sip. The hops don't taste fresh at all and are only providing bitterness and grass flavors. One again very clean with almost no yeast notes.

Feel is actually decent being very drinkable and has some actual body to it although it is still very light once you get past the carbonation and head stage of the sip. The finish isn't as short as I would've expected for a beer this light amd it leaves you feeling malty and a bit boozy for a decent while after your sip.

Overall it's alright. You can do better from Mexico, but it's about on par with all the other clear bottles that come from down there. Victoria and Tecate are both better and Tecate is the same style too.
