Pleasant enough Mexican beer; decent body, sightly sweet, kind of grassy, not much hops bite or aroma.

Bottle at Old Chicago.

Pours a clear pale to straw gold. Little lacing.

Corn nosed, vegetal, light hint of hops.

Corny, generally grainy taste. Very light presence of any bitterness. Overall, it isn't overwhelmed by light struck character but it is still far from something that I would drink again, which I thought I had. Shrugs.

Typical Mexican brew. Light and bright. Good ice cold in summer and doesn't need a lot of thought

24 Oz Can poured into glass. No lime put in this for rating purposes. Normally i would put it in.
Look - Well this was easy to predict. Clear pale straw color and medium-small foam head. Some slight lacing.
Smell - Stale Cornbread and mineral water, some sweetness. Fairly typical adjunct aroma.
Taste - There's nothing wrong with it but it's also a very basic beer. It's sort of like a house beer at a restaurant, something that is clean and crisp but not much in the way of flavor. Follows the nose with the corn sweetness. Carbonation is medium-high. Drinkability is very high like most Mexican lagers.

Not much else to say about it. I would say better than Corona but not quite as good as Modelo or Tecate. Overall, it's good for what it is, there is nothing to dislike about it, just a high carbonated simple adjunct beer. Grade is a C+

(24 oz can, BBD SEP 2018... purchased cold... poured into a simple glass mug)

L: crystal-clear, pale gold liquid, but with fine, speckled sediment afloat; extra-tall, creamy white foam, which recedes with a deep-dimpled, spongy form... actually a few crusty bands of lace; messy collar remains

S: lots of corn meal (tortilla) and an almost rank yeasty backbone... relatively potent smells, but comes across more like liquidized masa

T: corn meal, popcorn flecks, mild underlying pale grainy malt base; hint of bubblegum surfaces long into the aftertaste... rather dull, colorless, dimension-less flavors; bit of (lightly sweet) fresh corn kernel later on in aftertaste... virtually no hop flavor or tangible bitterness

F: soft, light-bodied, foamy; faint bit of residual silty film left behind... rather easy drinking, only mildly watery

O: third in a short 3-beer series of 24 oz can adjunct lager reviews (preceded by Labatt Blue and Tecate)... the tortilla-forward flavors and strange old-yeasty back note aren't endearing me to this... interesting differences compared to Tecate (from the same brewery)... might have had once before from a bottle, but I would never purposefully get this again

I bought it when the local grocery store was offering a buy one/get one promotion. After drinking it, I can understand why. They should have just given me the $15 to drink this swill, because I certainly would never buy it again. It tastes very weak, with a weird citrus flavor. And it literally tastes like an open can of beer that's been sitting around for a few days. Sol is absolutely awful. If you like cheap Mexican beer, go with Tecate.

I really couldn't find any redeeming qualities about this beer. Clear glass bottle poured into a mug. Fizzy white head that vanishes. Nothing, and I mean nothing, on aroma and taste. It is thirst quenching.

Pours a medium yellow body, with aromas of rice and a bit of a weird staleness. Flavour is likewise, with a slight pungent tone replacing the sulphuric at the back of the palate, ultimately leading to a slightly unclean finish. Not good
