This came inside the free mini bar at my all inclusive hotel room in Cancun. My curiosity finally got the better of me.
Pours a clear dark piss color with a tiny wisp of bubbles that immediately dissipate.
A not too appealing metallic aroma eventually makes way for a light grain and canned corn sweetness. I also get rice adjunct and a light whiff of grass.
Slightly astringent taste of grain along with sweetness from the corn adjuncts makes a curious combination. A very light touch of hops reminds you that it is beer. Beyond that, the primary flavor seems to be water.
Light bodied and crisp at first, however, the spritzy carbonation dies out midway, affecting the crispness and drinkability. Wet mouthfeel and finish; it could have benefited from dryness. Weird sour milk aftertaste. A metallic feel throughout is another detriment.
This was not good.

One more Mexican beer that is decent, but not worth the jump in price. If I were a Mexican wanting something from home, or just wanted something decently Mexican while at my local taqueria, I might do this. Otherwise, no.

Basic Mexican Lawnmower beer. I confess mine was at an outdoor bar in the Florida Keys. Just pounding cold ones. Exposed to sunlight/skunky.

Perhaps many may not find Sol the most remarkable, unique or mentioned brew on a personal favourite's list, there are a few respectable notes that make it a worthy summer treat. In the category of island/tropical brews (like Corona, Tecate, or Landshark), Sol retains a light flavour and crispness one would hope for to accompany a healthy lunch. Two redeeming factors are a light almost floral scent like gardenia and a clean wash with virtually no aftertaste. Not a lot of froth, but the fizz sticks around for the finish.

I think this beer suffers from the skunky beer in a clear bottle syndrome. I lucked out and found a fresh bottle in a dark spot in the cooler. Its not great but its not awful.

L: brilliant straw gold with streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 1" white foam collar with fair retention

S: faint fruit aroma, light corn, light grains, traces of malt, and fresh bread dough

T: light sweet corn, light grain and bread dough seasoned with a mild hop bitterness

F: light bodied and highly carbonated

O: There is not much there but what is there is drinkable

Basic all day beer - bring some limes. First time I went to Mexico I drank this instead of water. Helps wash down tequila.
