1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2013 Pale straw and yellow; the head is the fizziest, whitest cap I’ve seen and it disappears in record time. The nose... well, where the hell is it? Some mild corns, grains, metallic tinges, and some skunky, sulfuric smells. Not very pleasing, and not much of anything at all. Again, the taste is more of the same - lots of carbonation snap for a crisp taste, but there really isn’t much of a taste. Dry grains, corn, and while the bitterness is low, it enters in a very astringent manner. No actual floral or hop flavor aside from that slight bitter bite. Just a touch more flavor than a Corona, I’d say. But now we’re splitting hairs. Thin body, dry finish, heavily carbonated.

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) !

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.
