I really can't tell the difference between a Sol and a Corona. No colour, no aroma and no taste. Drink water instead, it's cheaper and better for you!!!

This one is just like most of the other Mexican beers I tried on a recent trip. Very light and lacking in aroma, flavor, etc. Didn't complain when sailing on a boat in the pacific but won't be seeking this one out anytime soon.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2004 Pale yellow color, tiny head. Some corn aroma when pouring, but almost nothing when in glass. Well, at least it doesn't smell bad. Sweetish, corny flavor. Very light-bodied, quite watery and carbonated palate. Ok along with spicy Mexican food - definitely not for beer tasting. Bottled corn-boiling water. It says "Please don't drink and drive" in the bottle. I'd leave off the last two words.

Quite stale, with no aroma, taste and body. Bad aftertaste will stay for a while.

Corona's poor cousin. It tries hard to be as light and tasty as corona but doesn't quite make it. A light flavour and good colour make for easy drinking on a hot day but nothing too special.

I was very impressed with this beer. Like Corona though, it's not complete without a lime. Get one whole lime for a six pack. I like this better than Corona, and made a great impression on me. The packaging is quite appealing too.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2003 Geez. This is a little better than Corona, I guess. Tastes very adjunctly like rice or corn etc. No hops, very watery. Another notch on my world beer appreciation staff.

As pictured. Faint aroma of corn. Taste almost not even there, except for adjuncts. Bleah.

quite an accomplishment that they managed to make this so flavourless, most land beers have atinge of nastiness but this has no tinge of anything. faint yellow, can't believe the finish, you would not know you were drinking beer. quite an accomplishment

bfgill has it exactly right ... not much for me to add. Just plain nasty. Makes other mass market Mexican beers like Corona seem marvelous. Skunky water sounds exactly right ... if it weren't for bad flavors, it would have no flavor at all. No redeeming features. Less than the sum of its parts. Awful. Lawnmower beer? I'm not sure what that means but I wouldn't make a good piece of machinery deal with anything this bad.
