12 oz bottle at La Cabana. Pours clear golden with a diminishing white head that leaves a little lace. Aroma is corny, generic lager. Flavor is sweet with notes of corn, watery, bland. Highly carbonated with a thin body. Average Mexican lager.

The best of the Mexican beers. Pours golden yellow and is bitter. Had this out of a bottle at my house. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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) !

Flaska från SB. Pissgul med lite vitt skum. Doftar bröd och metall. Smakar sött med ingen beska. Blask helt enkelt

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.
