I like Mexican beers. That being said, this one is different from the others. Corona is skunky. Carta Blanca is the most mild and drinkable of them all. Sol falls somewhere in between. Not much there in the foam or lacing department, but still a GREAT lawnmower beer. On a hot day, put in a slice of lime, and: you have refreshment! This beer is the best of both worlds

Bottle, poured clear yellow-golden with a small foamy white head that quickly dissipated to nothing. There's little distinctive about this beer outside of the nice silk-screened label. Typical yellow, fizzy, Mexican lager in a clear bottle. Mild malty aroma with a hint of citrus. Flavor is thin and unremarkable. Watery mouthfeel. Served nicely to wash down my Mexican food, so I'll give it an extra point in the overall impression.

Not half as bad as expected. Pours golden pale yellow, with a big head that disappears immediately. Hints of bitterness. Has more/better flavour than Corona but is even more watery at times in the flavour and always in the mouthfeel.

way too fizzy, not enough flavor. Forget hops, malt or anything else there is nothing to this beer.

When I had this, it was part of an awesome meal for a very good price in Whistler - one of the most amazing areas in B.C. - so it was hard to think poorly of this beer, But looking back on it, this was nothing more than a simple flame retardant for that extra cayenne pepper added to the salsa. It was typical Mexican pilsner: piss yellow fizzy watered down alchohol. There you go, that's the whole kit-and-kaboodle. El fin.

Piss-yellow, carbonation in aroma, watery with too much carbonation. No finish.

Decent smell, normal piss color. Has a nice sparkly flavor to it, but then it dies and becomes crap. Tasted better the first time - but I think that's because I was working outside.

Rastacouere (6126) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2003
This yellow may be the closest to piss in world of beers. Aroma holds nothing exciting unless you appreciate falling on a skunk in the middle of a cloudy night, worse than corona in my book. No texture, pronouncing the word complexity even to say there is none is pure blasphemous.

PpR (3) - GERMANY - JUL 22, 2003 does not count
Bad. This is all I can say. No wonder that club where I had my first and only offered it for only 2 Euros. Very bad taste. I cannot describe it. About as bad as Corona.

The same as almost every other mexican beer made. It was a hot 4th of july and I was playing horse shoes. Didn't expect too much from the beer I pulled out of the tub.
