Bottle. I enjoyed the flavor of this pale lager. The personality was mellow and sweet. It did not seem to be watery. It was malty and very well balanced. It went very well with the spicy chili soup I was having. A very pleasant lager.

This rating may not be right but picture this .... I’m in mexico sitting on the balcony it’s 10 at night, smoking a cigar and drinking this beer. The waves are relentless crashing on the beach I look over to the hotel next to us and there is 4 young ladies getting ready to go to the bar by trying on every outfit they own. What are you going to do sit back enjoy the cigar you have and watch the show, Life is good at this moment in time. Oh yea the beer it is very drinkable I would do this night over again.

Clear coloured body with a very thin white head. Aroma of metal, strong malt, alcohol and a bit of hops. Light-bodied; Nice malty flavour with cardboard, nuts and a light alcohol kick noticealbe in the taste. Aftertaste is mellow and refined - nice! Overall, one of the best Mexican beers I’ve had - definitely worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this 355 mL bottle purchased from 7-11 in Ciudad de Mexico (Mexico City), Mexico on 04-May-2007.

Yeah, malt liquor Mexican style. Sol with a high alcohol flavor that does not stand up well in the light malt.

Reminded me of a malt liquor, but that was in part to the huge size of the bottle. Couldn’t get through the whole thing. Alcohol was a bit noticable, but not horribly overpowering. Decent as a novelty.

Other than a non-offensive aroma, this stuff is garbage. A strong malt liquor type of flavor. It’s so bad that I can’t even use it combat the spiciness of the chinquinquillas I’m eating. Ick.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 got this in mexico for 15.5 pesos thats 1.50 US, and it was great. I got 50 ounces and although I tasted the alcohol the beer flavor kicked in nicely. Ok fine, so its not a high quality beer but as far as 40’s go (or 50’s) this one takes the cake.
