My god this was awful. Sour corn aroma with a bit of sulfer. Pours a little darker than tecate light. Chemical taste and very thin.

Can courtesy of Butters. Clear pale yellow body with a medium frothy white head. Cardboard and funky grain aroma. Big corn flavor, more cardboard, some graininess, and a bit of sulfur. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation.

Can: A 500th rating to forget, watery and stale, slight hops with a poor aftertaste.

When the comp fridge ran of of regular in our cancun hotel i tried this. Nerly undrinkable. This is the type of beer you take a few swigs of then just toss over the balcony. Tastes like corn water with salt.

Can in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. After trekking the wilds of the Tulum ruins, I decided to slake my thirst with a cold, refreshing Mexican brew. A nearby store had this little aluminum wonder on its shelves, so I splurged the 5 pesos or so it cost and bought it. Arriving back at the hotel, I grabbed a hotel glass, took my beer and said glass onto the balcony of my wife and my hotel room, and sat down on a chair. The wind was blowing gently, the sound of Mexican dance music waifed in the air, and the sun was begining to get sleepy in the Western sky. I opened the can and poured what appeared to be carbonated water laced with yellow food coloring. An odor of corn and processed tortillas permeated the air around me. I nonetheless pursued on and took a sip: what greeted me was weak corn and sour water-- perhaps that dirty water for which Mexico is infamous. As a matter of fact, I might as well have actually imbibed water instead because this stuff was merely water that would make you drunk. Moctezuma SHOULD take revenge for this crap.

Can from Oxxo Convenience store on my latest trip to Mexico. Same as Tecate light-- a non-descript pale lager. Weak.

juanitoo (6) - MEXICO - DEC 10, 2006 does not count
it tastes like water. flavorless, Sol is a very light beer, it wasnt neccesary to do a light version.

Veyr incipit, some people say that regular Sol is already light, but since Light beers are starting to have importance in MExico, I guess they launched this. VEry bad one.
