Clear yellow and a little head. Horrible skunked out aroma. It didn't taste as bad as it smelled. Very corny!

Slightly off aroma, corn and malt notes in body. Odd fruity/corn flavour. Unpleasant.

This is like a dirty Corona. It goes down easy but has a slight dirty/burnt taste to it. I would drink it again but it's not worth the price.

Based on the way it was marketed, I didn't expect much. Therefore I was not all that disappointed. It doesn't taste that bad - just doesn't taste that good either. In fact, it hardly has any flavor at all, except from the additives. Very little aroma, practically no aftertaste, etc. Maybe a decent summer beer, refreshing when served ice cold, but not worth the premium price. I added an extra point onto the appearance because I do like the packaging. Presentation is not everything, but it's worth something. (The label does not peel off as easily as in the ad though, and the Brazilian swimsuit model was nowhere to be seen.)

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2003 As others say, very disappointing, but it was all expected except the semi-surprising spices from mild hops that make it more interesting than say... Sol. Body while thin is creamier than a corona's

yeah I like corn but not in a beer. Bland water with molson's trademark "stink"

Bah, a light summer beer made by molson to compete with Corona. Hopefully, its not as bad. Corn nose, corn taste, no after-taste.

Pale gold colour with a fully diminishing fizzy white head. Lemony, skunky aroma. Honey sweetness up front, bland finish. Typical macrolager.

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2003 They've been hardcore pushing this Brazilian version of Sol here in Canada, a marketing scheme that seems fairly successful thus far, although not among actual beer lovers. The watered-down-urine appearance is evident through the "cleverly" clear, label-less bottle. There's almost no smell, no head, and no relation to its German namesake. It has some body at first, and it is rather complex for a cheap Molson brew, but all the flavours are nasty. Starts sourish and ends with sweetish corn syrup notes. Otherwise bland and inoffensive: just enough hop flavour to categorize it as beer, as opposed to slightly alcoholic tonic water. Easy drinkin'.
