Refreshing but I don’t like the taste and hard to call it a beer. I prefer Corona.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is a pretty typical cheap Meixcan lager. It actually smells nice but doesn’t taste so great. It is yellow in color w/ a small, white head. It somewhat matches the commercial description of having "an exciting aroma and flavor of malt." The nose does have a noticeable Grape Nuts malt character though it’s definitely on the flabby side and far from exciting. Taste is really rather bland an this is somehow both over-carbonated and watery and mushy all at the same time. There are no real off notes aside from a metallic twinge in the finish that is the only thing that gives me the notion that hops were involved in the creation of this beer. I could chuck some lime in this and chug it ice cold but, frankly, I could do that w/ a lot of things.

I'm learning that these cheaper corn/adjunct Mexican/Corona style beers are not truly the best beer to have at the beach, despite all the advertising to the contrary. This is just a watery and corny/grainy macro pale lager, usually lightstruck from the glass bottles. More economical than corona, and does have some inconsistent faint lemon/ fruity notes, but that may be more by accident than brewing skill. This one doesn't even come across as refreshing, finishes with a sour grainy flavor on the palate. If Sol is the only beer on hand than you're SOL (pun) !

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at the neighbors - hey, our power was out ... Very pale yellow pour. Aroma has light lemon and some sweet (fruit?), just quite thin. Taste is thin; light lemon, somewhat skunky. Shrug? Trying for Corona, and it may have gotten there ... Not undrinkable.

@ Röhällavägen. Bottle (330 ml) from Systembolaget (15:-). Corn and maybe some light light fruity notes, some sweetness, almost no bitterness at all, extremely light and watery. Not good.

A slightly inferior copy of Corona. No good beer, but doesn’t taste bad by any means.
