Sol Light is a new brand and is produced by Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V.

I bought a couple of beers today just for this review.

This beer pours a poor yellow color without head and no lace; Not much aroma, smell is malty but weak, Flavor is watery, Easy to drink. Refreshing.

Not impressed.

¡Salud!

Sol light....the little sister of Sol. Again these beers taste a heck of alot better with a lime addition and when its hot. Perfect for summertime. The beer is golden clear with decent carbontation. The smell and taste have grain presence. There are some hops that help to balance the beer. Mouthfeel with these is like any other....easy. Why torture yourself....through a lime in and enjoy.

I drank this from a can into a pint glass in Puerto Vallarta.

It pours a bright clear gold, white head about a finger no lacing or good retention.

It smells hops and skunk, the taste is the same. Mouthfeel is water and you its pretty drinkable but who would want to?

As Verano Sol as well, at 4.5%. Sixty cents at OXXO.

Pours a clear golden with a fleeting head. A very highly carbonated brew.

Smells mostly of adjuncts but has a bit of maltiness there as well. Taste offers just a thin malt background and not much else. Feel and Drinkability suffer from the high carbonation.

Actually preferred this from the can down by the pool where the beer's weaknesses were somehow contained.

This appeared in my free-bee minibar at my all-inclusive resort. The mini-fridge has been continuously stocked with Dos Equis and Tecate until this morning, when two cans of Verano Sol (summer Sol?) showed up...which I think is the same thing as Sol Light.

A - A small fizzy head disappears quickly, and leaves some soapy fizz on top of the brew. The beer is bright yellow, like a Mountain Dew, or first morning void.

S - Salty corn chips and lime. Not all that great, but appropriate for the time and place.

T - Again, big time lime flavor with some salty corn nachos behind it. Pretty dang flavorful for a light lager.

M - Light and refreshing with tons of carbonation. This avoids the typical watery texture of most light lagers, and the limey finish is actually pretty long (I didn't put any limes in the beer, it just tastes that way).

D - Pretty decent really. Probably the best light lager to be found in Mexico, odd, since I don't really care for the regular Sol.
