Straw yellow and clear. Mild skunk aroma. Clean and refreshing. Grassy and gassy. Modest roasted malts. Weak and watery. One of the better mex. imports. Must have been a fresh batch.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ok broke down and bought a 12 oz for oldtimes sake. Sounds strange butin late 1980s, early 90s Scottish nightclubs this was THE Mexican beer , Corona hardly ever heard of. So I had not tasted this since circa 1991..and now Im gonna do the ultimate dare and actually drink it without lime!!!.
Not too bad of an appearance a nice golden colour, largish pure white head..goes fast, little lacing.
Smell is remarkably not skunked and is mainly of hops.
expected more from the taste but its very thin..and only comes alive on the back of the tonguewith a small doise of hop.
NOt impressed by the feel of the beer..way too thin.
Its drinkable and certainlly much better than Corona..ah well but i can wait another 13 years until I have another.

Isn't this just the "lemon" to Corona's "lime"? There's not much difference between the two... both light and virtually tasteless.

Drinkable if you can't get water and you need something bland. Pale in every way.

Bottle at Dusseldor'f restaurant in Ft. Myers Beach, FL. A small sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body was transparent and softly carbonated with a yellow hue. The nose was very skunky with a malt flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth, watery and thin. This was a light bodied beer with no lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 120. This bottled brew was sampled at Dusseldorf's restaurant in Fort Myers Beach Florida. This brew poured a head with mostly diminishing fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent urine yellow colored softly carbonated body and no lace. The aroma was mildly skunked with malt and hop notes. The mouthfeel was thin and rice beer like and the flavor was mild with rice malt and hops.

Corona is much better than this beer. Corona at least has a little flavor to it. This just tastes like 7up, and that was only when I put the lime in it.

I agree 100% with the rater below me - I can't tell the difference either! However, I am not quite as opposed to the refreshing style of Mexican lager. With a bit of lime stuck down the neck, this ends up being a palatable drink. The acidity of the lime works well with the solid fizziness of Sol (and the the rest) and acts like a kind of fruity shandy. It's OK.

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.
